3 Benefits Of Renting Self-Storage When Spring Cleaning
There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the aftermath of an intense spring cleaning session in your home. It can be challenging to clean your entire home, and some areas of your home may not get thoroughly cleaned due to cluttering of spaces. More often than not, in the process of rearranging your home, you may find that certain items no longer have a designated place or no longer fit in your home. If you find yourself needing extra space to house your excess items, you may want to consider renting a storage unit as part of your spring cleaning efforts.
Read on to learn how renting a unit in a storage facility can help declutter your home and what are some of the items you can store in your storage to make room for more important items at home!
1. Seasonal clothing, decorations and accessories
This may not be something you notice right away, but seasonal items tend to take up a lot of room in your home. A self-storage unit makes it easy to preserve items such as your festive decorations that you only put up every once in a while, winter holiday clothes, and birthday party supplies as it offers a safe and dry place to keep them when not in use. Stashing them away in a proper small storage unit also helps to extend the life of your items and create more usable storage space in your home.
2. Large furniture
When was the last time you gave the entire flooring of your home a good scrub? The only time it’s feasible is when you are about to move into your new home. Apart from that, it is nearly impossible to thoroughly clean your home since you would have to move your bulky furniture and rugs around. When you rent a self-storage unit, you can securely store your big pieces of furniture in an easy-to-access location while you give your home a thorough spring cleaning. Additionally, a storage unit is a fantastic option when you need to repaint the entire house too, as having them stored away in a storage facility removes the need to worry about paint dripping on your antique rug, costly sofa or even your precious piano.
3. Pre-loved items to donate or sell
Pre-loved sales are often planned around spring cleaning. For most people, you will eventually sort your items into three categories as you are decluttering your home room by room: to throw, to sell, and to donate. By renting a self-storage unit, you can put these piles of clothing into storage until the time comes to hold a pre-loved items sale. In this way, you’ll be able to use the extra space for other important items instead of storing the pile of clothes you won’t be needing any more. There are other benefits to eliminating clutter, such as reducing allergy symptoms, because there are fewer spaces to collect dust, and it improves your mental clarity as well.

It is only when you are able to clean the nooks and crannies and the most challenging spots that spring cleaning feels truly accomplished.

That is why you should think about the rooms in your house where self-storage can be helpful as you begin your spring cleaning routine.
