With the winter season starting to get into full swing, you may want to think about storing all those summertime items in a self storage facility. Here are a few tips to make sure your transition from summer to winter is as seamless as possible:
1. Make sure all your items are in proper working condition before storing. Why? Making sure your belongings work before stashing them away for a few months will prevent you from having to remember about making repairs later down the line. Make life a little easier on yourself in the long run by taking a few extra minutes to make sure everything works properly.
2. Clean all your items before storing them. Cleaning your items and making sure they are completely dry is essential to the upkeep of your belongings. When the temperatures drop, the cold lurks in and any moisture can turn into ice.
3. Any tools that require gas to power them , be sure to empty the tanks! (lawnmowers, weed wackers, etc.)
4. If you plan on storing any clothing, be sure all items are thoroughly washed. Particles and stains left on your clothing can set into several months of storage. Cleaning the clothes also means that insects will be less likely to take up refuge in your sweaters.
