Spring cleaning is upon us and residents all over South Florida are preparing their homes for the purge. Whether you conduct a full-house cleaning once a year or once a month, you may want to consider renting an A+ Mini Storage unit to get things out of the way during the process. In addition, cleaning and organizing easily can turn into redecorating. A+ Mini Storage facilities are great places to store items long-term that do not fit into your updated home design scheme but that you are not ready to toss, sell or donate. Not only do we offer a wide variety of storage spaces but you can also get all the boxes and storage supplies needed to get your cleaning started. Here are some additional tips to maximize your spring cleaning in 2018:
- Clear counters and shelves and wash them thoroughly. If you have stacks of papers or bills, now is a good time to file the important documents in your self storage unit. Recycle junk mail, outdated magazines and used envelopes.
- Sort through seasonal clothes. Wash or dry clean them, and sew on buttons or stitch up minor tears. A wardrobe box with a hanging rod will help keep clothes looking fresh and can easily be placed into your storage unit. Remember to look critically at your clothes. Get rid of overly worn garments and things you never wear.
- As you clean the nooks and crannies, you may find leaky faucets, broken door handles or cracked tiles. Take time to make these repairs now to prevent them from becoming more serious or costly problems later. Get rarely used tools out of the way when you are done with the repairs by placing them in your self storage unit.
- Remove lawn furniture from your garage or self storage unit and clean it. A good spraying with the hose will usually do the trick. These bulky items can get in the way when stored at home. As these seasonal items don’t need to be removed often, you may find that when you tuck them away in a self storage unit you have taken a very practical step toward keeping your home free of clutter.
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. Visit a conveniently located A+ Mini Storage facility near you today!
