It’s that time of year again in the Carolinas, the sun is slowly, but surely coming out. Now is time to spring clean. Sometimes the very best way to spring clean your home is with the use of a self storage unit? Renting a unit can dramatically increase the amount of stuff that you can remove from your home.
We’ve listed some tips that can tell you how to use a unit for spring cleaning.
Remember, the sooner you get this done, the happier you will be, no point in keeping winter things around.
Make A List
No-good spring-cleaning endeavor is going to go well without a plan. Get a pen and paper and start making a list of all the things that you want to remove from your home. It’s even easier to just make a note on your phone, that way you will never lose it.
Plan of Attack
Think about this one carefully, some people like to start with the easiest rooms first and move along. We suggest starting with the hardest first. This could be either the garage or the kitchen. Organize room by room and do not leave the room and start on another unless you are 100% done.
Storing Seasonal Items
No need for anything winter anymore. Winter clothes, Coats, Boots, Ski’s, Snow Shovels, Electric space heater, should all go into storage until next year. If you do not have a dedicated space to store these things, your best bet is renting one of our units. Even if you have the space you could probably use it for something better. Your home shouldn’t become a storage unit.
Choose a Unit
This is totally dependent on the number of items you want to store. If it’s just a few boxes of items, you can rent a small unit, 5’x10’. From there you can only go bigger, if you plan to use your unit as a second garage, you can rent a 10’×20’ unit. For a full list of unit sizes and more, visit here.
