Sometimes you’re just unable to take care of your garden shed properly due to the harsh weather conditions or your busy schedule.
Because of the low amount of maintenance and care, your garden shed probably became rusty and old. Patches of rust began to show all over their surface.
Now that you have some time to fix your garden shed, we have a few useful tips for you that can help in getting rid of most of the rust.
Remove any Dust or Debris
Start off by cleaning your shed properly. This will help you in finding out the intensity of damage rusting has done to your garden shed.
You can use a pipe or hose to spray water onto the rusty part of your garden shed. The water coming onto the surface with pressure will quickly remove most of the dirt.
For proper washing and cleaning, you can use any detergent or soap and mix it with water, then apply this mixture to the rusty area with the help of a sponge.
We do not advise you to rub the rusting too hard as this could make it worse.
Disband the Sheds
You need to take apart your garden shed properly, step by step. First you should remove the roof, then the door and lastly the walls.
Pay close attention to the screws and hinges that you put away in the process. It is good to look after these so make sure to keep them in a safe place.
This way by disbanding the shed you can easily wash them and get rid of the rust.
Use Home Remedies
Sometimes home remedies help you in getting rid of rust quickly and at a smaller cost. There are a few natural ingredients like lemon, lime and vinegar that can remove rust in no time.
You can also use potato to remove rust. You need to simply cut off the potato in center and add in some dish soap. A chemical reaction will take place and you can leave it for few hours.
