How To Protect Your Shelving in the Winter Months

With the winter months fast approaching, it is important to make sure you’re taking care of your garage shelving. When using MDF shelves, they can be susceptible to mould/bowing when used in areas with poor airflow, high humidity, or dampness, which is typically what happens within a garage and therefore we have some tips and tricks to try and avoid this in the winter months.

If you’re using your shelving within your home, there is very minimal chance they will be affected by this, but your garage may have poor airflow and dampness (especially in the winter months). There are many ways to avoid this.

We recommend using:

  • Paint
  • Varnish
  • Stain

We suggest using any of the following on the areas on the MDF board that may be exposed to any area of high damp or humidity, or if there is a chance the shelves could be exposed to water. Similarly to what you’d use on an outdoor fence, this will seal them, and prevent any moisture seeping in. Focusing mainly on the edges of the MDF boards is key as they can be most susceptible to damage.
