Tips to Keep Your Storage Unit Sparkling All the Time

Even while firmly secured on the outside, a self-storage unit might still be exposed to the elements on the inside. 

Besides wrecking damage on your goods, unkempt storage can be off-putting, making you feel anxious and undecided about it.

However, you can put all of this at bay with some simple yet practical cleaning tips.

Clean Before Packing

You can set a good precedence for a neat storage unit by cleaning stored valuables from day one. For this, you need cleaning materials like soft fabrics, gloves, paintbrushes, vacuums, squirt bottles, etc. Take time out to clean each item properly before placing them in storage. 

Organise your Valuables

With subsequent cleanups and organising, you’ll find it easier to reach for and clean all your items. Create an inventory for your unit, declutter to make more room for useful items, and place items in properly labelled containers.

Use Wrappers for Large Items

Items that don’t fit into any containers at all like large furniture should be covered with wrappers like storage covers and blankets. That way, dusting large items can be as easy as removing the wrappers.

Keep Food Away

It’s never a good idea to bring food into your storage unit whether for immediate or future use. You may have them carefully wrapped and tucked away, but they could still draw in pests inside your unit.
