How to Store Furniture in a Storage Unit

Storing your furniture in a storage unit for an extended amount of time is great for creating more space in your home. But storing furniture can also be a little frustrating if you don’t store it properly. Your furniture could become damaged and deteriorated depending on the climate of your storage unit. Here are some ways that you can keep your furniture in tact and fresh for when you retrieve it from your unit.

Disassemble and Pack

To get more bang for your buck in your storage unit make sure you disassemble your furniture like beds, tables, and dressers. This will create more space in your unit while also keeping your furniture safe. Collect all of the nuts, bolt s, and screws of the furniture in a plastic bag and secure the bag to your piece of furniture.
We also suggest that you wrap your headboard and tabletops in a blanket or soft material to prevent scratching. Anything breakable like lamps and glass should be wrapped as well. To prevent any glass table tops from breaking it is wise to tape an X on the table top to prevent it from shattering.  
 

Cleaning

  Fabric furniture like beds, couches, and chairs need to be properly cleaned before storage to prevent them the growth of mold and mildew. You can clean your furniture by wiping down the fabric with an antibacterial or warm soapy water solution. Leather should be cleaned professionally before storage.
Another precautionary step to take is to purchase plastic furniture covers. These will help to keep the moisture and dirt off of your furniture so that when you take it out of storage it is ready to use right away.

Maintenance

Although it is not required, it is suggested that you stop by once a month to check on all of your belongings. It’s also a good idea to take inventory right when you purchase your storage unit so you know exactly what you have in your unit. If anything were to go missing please notify us immediately. We look forward to working with you soon!
