Protecting Appliances in Your Basement
If you’re like most people, there’s probably at least one appliance stored or being used in your basement. Washers, dryers, refrigerators, chest freezers…the list goes on. Having valuable appliances stored in your basement means that you need to take extra care and consideration in how the space is used and maintained. After all, you want to make sure that they stay working at their best for many years to come.
Here’s how you can protect your appliances when they live in your basement:
- Clean Appliances Regularly: You may not think about cleaning them, but it’s important to their overall lifespan to do so. Regularly dust, remove dirt and debris, and clean around vents, condensers, hookups, or other components that can wear out faster when left dirty.
- Watch Out For Moisture: Excess moisture in your basement can mean mold, mildew, and rust on your appliances. Make sure your appliances are protected from moisture by using a dehumidifier regularly in your basement, placing water-prone appliances like washing machines in drain pains, and investing in water resistant flooring options, like Floorguard®. Sealing your walls and floor with a moisture barrier also makes your basement look better, too!
From water resistant flooring options to regular cleanings, caring for your appliances starts with how you store them. Make sure you’re not skipping the extra care and consideration your appliances need in your home.
My garage was so cluttered and a total mess, I was always embarrassed to have the door open! Not anymore!! Floorguard® helped me design a perfect system for my family, it’s amazing!! Now I keep my garage door open for all to see, it’s organized, and absolutely beautiful!!!

Really Pleased! Our garage needed some major help – not only was it a mess but the floor was just ugly with all the stains and such. I will agree with the reviewer below – do not go with the cheap imitators! Floorguard not only has a great product, but their installers and service is well worth any extra cost, which is minimal anyway. Our neighbors have commented on how good our garage looks and we’ve recommended them to Floorguard without hesitation.
The garage looks so good! A+ company on every level. Wish I had another garage to resurface!
My neighbor had a floor done by another company that was new to the industry, boy were they sorry. I went with the experts, Floorguard did an incredible job!!
