What types of mats do you have on the floor? Great garage! Love it!!!
brush and warm water. Rinse and let dry. Thoroughly sweep the floors. If you want to get the floors extra clean, spray them with a hose, scrub with an old mop, rinse and sweep out excess water. Let them dry completely before bringing back any of your stuff.
Remove everything from the garage, if you haven’t already. Inspect the garage for signs of rodents, pests and water damage. If you find signs, make a plan to treat as needed. Vacuum or sweep up dust bunnies and major dust from the corners. Wear a dust mask if you are sensitive to dust. Sprinkle powdered

Architectural Louver Company. You can contact Curt Buehning at (612)250-1882, and he can manufacture and ship those for you if you wish. He recommends using either kiln-dried clear cedar or All Prime products, and applying an oil primer while the wood is still fresh - before they have weathered gray.
a large-format sample board (4'x4' min. recommended) with the siding and trim colors you are considering, and then take the board out to your site and hold it up next to the roofing, stone, and paving materials you are considering; so that the entire color palette is coordinated together. Cheers,
