3 ways of maintaining a healthy garden room

A garden room demands some maintenance to make it a livable place anytime and get maximum value. Regardless of the material used for construction, no structure is immune to abrasion thus after being used for a long period, remodeling a garden room by repairing, renovating, and cleaning it frequently will revive and bring it back to life.


With weather fluctuations, there are several structures that can get damaged; therefore, repairing the garden room is inevitable. Indeed, the repair is the only surest way to maintain a good condition of the garden room and prolong its lifespan.

To begin with, if the roofs are leaking then the better option will be to buy brand new and install. But, where the garden room has no gutters, inspecting the roof and the gutters to remove any debris that could block water from flowing all through to the ground is the ideal thing. Not to mention, cracked glass panes should also be checked and replaced, while broken doors and window seals should be repaired accordingly.

Moreover, the locks and hinges need lubrication at least twice a year to retain their smooth functionality. Similarly, when doing garden room repair, it is important to consider the condition of the floor because it also gets damaged but if it is carpeted, refinishing it again is the solution. Still, where the garden room has tiled floors, it is recommendable to reseal the grout to avoid dirt accumulating there.

Additionally, remember to check out the frame wood and if they have decolorized, repaint them, and apply a quality preservative to improve the external cladding appearance.


Garden room maintenance cannot end without renovating the parts which have minor defects. Ordinarily, it is vital to retain the original features including the wood, size, and shape to restore the identity unless it is a total overhaul.  

The foundation and the deck are the places to begin since they are highly prone to decay. While reinforcing the foundation and weakened deck, ensure there are no broken boards while the dividers must be firmly attached to the ground and no nails that are sticking out.

Besides, where they have decayed, fix brand new dividers to ensure the whole structure is firmly bolstered. 

In addition, if the timber claddings have lost their primary look or some parts are broken the remedy will be to coat a new one and apply Ultraviolet oil.


Building a beautiful garden comes with the need for regular cleaning of accessories such as furniture, sweeping, mobbing of the floor.

Basically, cleaning can start by using a broom to remove cobwebs and debris on the ceiling and interior walls. Thereafter, sweep the floor as well as the compound to eliminate any drained mud, fallen leaves, and other dirt.

Equally, scrub the floor using water and disinfectant like hydrogen peroxide but if it is carpeted washing every side will improve its look.

Moreover, wash curtains, clean the window glasses, panel joints, and frames using a soft cloth, and treated water then wipe down the patio and furniture with mild detergent.  

In conclusion, repairing, cleaning, and renovating a garden room will always make it tidy, in shape and functional. It is always recommendable to begin with the base and internal structure.Particularly, think about the condition of the floor, roof and the color of the cladding. In addition, the vents, doors, and windows should be assessed to ensure that the broken ones are fixed. Getting an expert assessment is highly advisable to be certain of extensive inspection that will determine whether to do repair or renovate the whole structure. However, care should be exercised during repair to preserve the identity of the garden room and improve its value.
