Self-Storage Tips 101: 3 smart ways to maintain your items through the seasons
As the spring season ends, it’s time to start cleaning up your house and closet to welcome summer. Here are three clever ways to prepare your home for the sunny season and properly store your items to maintain them in good condition all year round.
Thick and heavy carpets can help to add warmth from winter to spring. However, the carpet might add extra heat around the home during the warmer seasons. Cool off by storing your carpets and reusing them again during winter.
Before storing it in your storage unit, remember to clean it thoroughly to prevent moulds and dust accumulation. Clean from at least two different directions to absorb all the dust on the carpet. Afterwards, it would be good to use a protective sheet to wrap it up for long-term storage in your storage unit.
Goodbye, spring comforter! It’s time to replace your thick fluffy comforter with a thin material blanket. Like your carpet, spring bedding should also be clean and stain-free before you pack and store them.
There are no fixed cleaning rules here. You can either use a washing machine or go to a laundromat. Just remember that your comforters should be completely dry before storage, as any leftover moisture may cause moulds in your storage unit! To optimise your space, fold them neatly and use a vacuum storage bag to compress the size of your winter comforters.
