Get Rid of Dust In The Garage

Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Fort Worth, TX works in all sorts of garages in many kinds of homes. One thing they all seem to have in common is a tendency to gather dust like no other space in the house. Believe it or not, there are things you can do to help you get rid of dust in the garage.

What Is Dust, Exactly?

Have you ever stopped to think what dust actually is? It’s such a commonplace thing that we don’t realize it’s really a combination of lots of different particles:

  • Hair
  • Skin cells
  • Pet dander
  • Clothing fibers
  • Bits of wood or stone
  • Mold
  • Pollen
  • Etc.

As you can imagine, these elements are available in abundance in your garage.  The worst culprit for dust in your garage is actually cement flakes from your floor as it wears down. As these tiny particles swirl through the air, they eventually settle on surfaces when the air is still enough. Your garage is probably not trafficked frequently and therefore is an easy place for dust to settle down.

Clean Up

Before you get too grossed out and give up, rest assured that it is possible to get rid of dust in the garage. You’ll want to start by cleaning up, both in general and in terms of dusting. Any old clutter that’s lying about, especially cardboard, can be a source of mold and needs to go.

You also want to dust the room from top to bottom, making sure to get into all the corners and knock down the cobwebs. After everything has had time to settle down, sweep the floor really well. Make sure you get all the loose concrete up so you’re prepared for the next step.

Seal the Floor

To help prevent further concrete dust from building up, you should consider sealing your concrete floor. After sweeping, mop the floor thoroughly, let it dry, then apply a sealant as a protective barrier. This will not only help with dust, it will also extend the life of floor by preventing further breaking down of the concrete.


Now that you’ve gotten the garage clean and dust free, you want to do everything you can to prevent it from coming back. If you have central heating and air tied to your garage, make sure that all your filters are changed on a regular schedule of 30-90 days, depending on your filters. If it’s not, consider getting an ionic filter or another stand-alone system that will remove loose particles from the air before they can settle.

Contact Us To Seal Up Your Garage Door

Another way to prevent excessive dust is to limit the amount of outside dust by making sure your door is sealed properly. Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Fort Worth, Texas has you covered in this regard! Give us a call anytime and we’ll gladly come out and inspect your garage door seals. As part of our regular garage door services, we can repair any gaps and even install new seal if needed.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
