It’s time to store summer items away. But what if you don’t have enough space in your home or garage? Self-storage is a great option that allows you to keep your belongings safe and secure until next season. Here are some tips on how best to store your summer items:
One of the best ways to make sure your patio furniture is ready for action next summer is to take care of it now. The right storage will help extend the life of your patio furniture, keeping it in good condition and ready for use when you need it again.
Clean and dry your garden equipment.
When it comes to keeping your summer cleaning equipment in good shape, you have three options: clean it, dry it and store it.
Drain water from lawn maintenance equipment and motors.
Cover and store pool toys, noodles and inflatables.
Inflatable rafts, boogie boards and other large items should be covered with a large plastic bag or tightly closed box to protect against dust and dirt. You can also cover them with blankets or towels to keep the surfaces from getting scratched up. Store these items in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources such as radiators or fireplaces.
If you have large items that will not fit in your garage or shed, consider self storage. Items like grills, ladders and canoes, kayaks and bicycles can be stored easily in a self storage unit.
Self storage is also a good option for seasonal items such as lawn mowers or rakes that you don’t want to put away until the following season. You can store these items inside a climate-controlled unit so they’re protected from damage by moisture or sun exposure during the off-season months.
There are plenty of ways to store your summer items before the colder months arrive. We hope these tips will help you get ready for winter and make the most of your home storage space. If you have any questions or want more information about how we can help, please give us a call!
