Travelling overseas or going to the beach are the most popular things to do for the summer holidays. However, people are now changing their summer trip plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic. More people are choosing camping trips that respect social distancing. If you are keen on going on a camping trip as well, check out these three essential tips.

 

  1. Prepare your camping gear using a checklist

This list should include: a tent, sleeping bags, folding chairs, lighting and a first-aid kit. Since the camping site is far away from the city, bringing the right equipment is very important and having a checklist will definitely help you remember the important items.

 

  1. Choosing a camping site

A good camping site for beginners is a town nearby with good facilities and amenities. Go online to check out campsites in your area, and you will realise that there are so many options to choose from. If you have pets, you need to check in advance to find out if pets are allowed. On the campsite, try to find a flat, clean and even ground to set up your tent. Beware of any sharp rocks or debris, as an uneven ground may damage your tent and affect the comfort of your sleep.

 

  1. Bring a quilt and some extra clothes

Camping is an outdoor activity that is impacted by the weather conditions, and you might experience cold at night as the temperature drops. So bringing waterproofing items, extra clothes and a quilt to the campsite is highly recommended – add them to your checklist!

Camping gear is bulky and takes up space. If you are running out of space to store your camping gear, maybe Extra Space can help. Here, you can enjoy the freedom to access your belongings 24/7 any time, any day. Storage spaces ranging from 1.5 to 40 square-metres are available, with rental periods from as short as two weeks to as long as required. Call 1899-8708 today to find out more.

Using steel material partition instead of urethane

Fires in a warehouse pose huge problems and risks and lead to an immeasurable loss of life and property, especially when building partitions are made of urethane material. Urethane foam has excellent insulation, explaining its popularity amongst many warehouse facilities. However, as it is not a fire-resistant material, this material causes fire breakouts to spread quickly.

 

In an attempt to safeguard the Extra Space facilities and to minimise the risk of fire, we have committed to only using partitions made from steel that has passed stringent safety inspections. Safety has always been our utmost priority, and we strive to provide a safe and secure facility that all our customers can rely on.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, South Korea has started to teach students online. As this is a relatively new initiative, many parents are worried about creating a conducive study environment at home. Here are some tips to make the ideal study room for our kids.

 

  1. Remove distractions

Kids are very easily distracted, especially during the “Homeschooling” period as they will be staying at home all day. Therefore, if you want your child to focus on studying during the e-learning, remove all possible distractions from the kid’s room.

 

  1. Keep the study space organised

One of the most effective ways to make your child focus on learning at home is to maintain a tidy room. Organise school materials such as textbooks, notes and school supplies near the desk. And make sure all study items are placed at a designated area on the desk or in the drawer. You can also consider labelling the items to guide kids on how to organise each item themselves after use.

 

  1. Lighting

Dim settings never fail to make us sleepy. So think about adding a small lamp on the desk for a well-lit study space. But, remember choose a light source that is not too bright or straining on the eyes!

 

  1. Space

Not enough space to create a study room for kids at home? You can easily make space by storing things at a self-storage facility like Extra Space. Here, you can have the flexibility to store things as short as 14 days to as long as required (with spaces ranging from 1.5 to 40 square metres). Once the COVID-19 pandemic is over, simply bring your things back home as usual.

As winter ends, it’s time to start cleaning up your house to welcome the spring season 🙂

Here are 3 items to look out for when you start cleaning your living room and closet.

 

  1. Carpet

Thick and heavy carpets can help to create extra warmth during winter. However, during the warmer seasons, the carpet might add extra heat around the home. Can’t take the heat? Cool off by storing your carpets and reusing them again during winter.

Before storing it in your storage unit, remember to clean thoroughly to prevent moulds and accumulation of dust.  Please clean from at least 2 different directions to absorb all the dust.

 

  1. Bedding

Goodbye, winter comforter! It’s time to replace your thick fluffy comforter to a thin material blanket. Like your carpet, winter bedding should also be clean and stain-free before you pack and store.

There are no fixed cleaning rules here. You can either choose to use a washing machine or go to a laundromat. Just remember that your comforters are completely dry before storage – any leftover may cause moulds to grow in your storage unit! To optimise space, fold them neatly or use a vacuum storage bag to compress the size of your winter comforters.

 

  1. Large bulky family items

Carpet, comforter, curtains and even clothing winter items are very bulky and take more space than everyday household items. If you’re running out of space to store these bulky items, no worries! Extra Space Self-storage is here to help.

Our self-storage units are air-conditioned, so your temperature-sensitive items can always be kept in their best condition. You can also enjoy the freedom to access your items 24/7, any time, any day. Visit our facility today to find out more.

Have you ever felt that your home is getting smaller due to accumulated home appliances and everyday belongings? All households experience the same as time goes by, but moving to a bigger place is a difficult and pricey decision to make. Here are 3 tips making your house look bigger by decluttering.

 

1. Start by organising big furniture

Before sorting out the clothes in the wardrobe, organise the space-consuming furniture, appliances and electronics first. Having too many bulky items in one space can make the room look cluttered and cramped. Therefore, once you see big items that have not been used quite a long time, move them out first. Then you will be able to reorganise the space.

 

2. Discard and find new storing space

Once you have done organising the big items, it is time to look at the small areas. Open up your closet, wardrobe and desk drawer. Keep the sentimental items and frequently-used things, and discard those that you have not used over the years. If you have not used the items for a long time, chances are you may not be needing those anymore. Why not maximise your storage closet as much as you can to enjoy more space at home? Can’t bear to throw away some items? Consider donating them, or selling them in a second-hand market.

 

3. Consider using self-storage

Still in need of extra space to store all of your sentimental and hobby items? Choose Self-storage! By storing things in a facility like Extra Space, you can find more space at home without losing any of your things. You will be able to access your storage unit 24/7, any time, any day.

 

Here, you can rest assured that your things are in a safe space with air-conditioning and optimal temperature settings. Visit Extra Space to choose from a wide range of storage size to store your items on a flexible basis from as short as 14 days to as long as you need. Call us at 1899-8708 today to find out more.
