The sun is shining, the weather is gorgeous, which means one thing … summer is here! Summer is the time to de-clutter and organize your home for the great weather and preparation of next winter. As you open your windows to let in the fresh summer breeze, tackle home improvement projects, and clean away winter's dust, you may find that now is a great time to reorganize the contents of your home.
While there are many ways to control clutter, self-storage is a smart option because it allows you to get items out of your way and maintain them in a secure, climate-controlled space that you can access whenever you need to. If you have never used Self Storage before, then please read further. If you are just trying to clean out a closet then you probably will want to rent a smaller space such as a 5 'x 5' (25 sq ft), which is the size of a small closet. If you know that you are going to be walking furniture, then you will be looking to rent a larger space, most likely a 5 'x 10' (50 sq ft) which can accommodatefully one room of furniture.
In addition, cleaning and organizing easily can turn into redecorating. Self-storage facilities are great places to store items for the long-term that do not fit into your updated home design scheme but that you are not ready to toss, sell or donate.
Spring cleaning may be a lot of work, but the payoff is a brighter, safer home. That can give you a new perspective and prepare you to meet life's other challenges. Find a self-storage facility near you for your bulky out-of-season gear, tools, and other odds and ends or to protect your goods for a few days while the house is in upheaval.
Another great use for self-storage this summer is to store your extra pool accessories and then use it to put your pool away during the winter. You will not need to worry about using up your garage space or selling the pool when summer is over.
Remember there things you can not keep in a storage unit, including many household and garage items such as: gasoline, paint, certain chemicals, fireworks and other potential hazardous items. If you have any concerns, you should always check with your self storage facility manager who will help you decide what is best to store in your unit.
