Spring is in the air! It’s time to start thinking about all of the things we want to do to get our homes and lives in order. One task that often gets overlooked is spring cleaning the storage units. Most people pack their units and forget about them, but avoiding cleaning this space from time to time can leave you with a bigger mess. But don’t worry, ABC Junk Removal & Hauling has you covered with five easy steps for a successful spring clean of your storage unit.
1. Label Your Boxes
One of the best ways to spring clean your storage unit is to make sure that all of your boxes are properly labeled. This may seem like a small task, but it can make a big difference when it comes time to find something. When labeling your boxes, be sure to include both the contents and the date. This will help you keep track of what is inside each box, as well as when it was last used.
2. Throw Away Any Junk or Clutter
If you’re like most people, your storage unit is probably full of things you don’t use or need. Every once in a while, it’s a good idea to go through your belongings and get rid of anything that’s no longer useful or is taking up precious storage space. A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself whether you’ve used the item in the past year. If the answer is no, then it’s probably time to get rid of it.
3. Consolidate Things You Keep
Over time, it’s easy for a storage unit to become cluttered and disorganized. Instead of storing multiple boxes of holiday decorations, for example, consider keeping only the items that you actually use. The same goes for clothes, books, and other belongings. Consolidate as much as possible to keep your storage unit clutter-free.
4. Reorganize the Layout
The layout of your storage unit can have a significant impact on how cluttered it feels. So, once you have all your junk removed and your boxes labeled, it’s time to rethink the layout. Put heavy, bulky items towards the back and save space up front for the things you’ll need most often or want easier access to. A cleaner layout will help keep your storage unit clutter-free.
5. Sweep Up Any Debris & Dust
Finally, before you lock up and go, it’s time to sweep up the dust and debris you’ve created. Removing as much dust from your storage unit will ensure your belongings remain in good condition. It will also make it more appealing to come back to a clean and tidy storage unit.
