Organization Techniques For Storage Units

  • Wash any clothes that are going into storage and make sure that they are getting some bug deterrent when they are stored, such as mothballs, and being held in airtight containers.
  • Wax and wipe down any wooden items that you are planning to keep.
  • Leather materials should be cleansed with a leather cleaning or gentle soap before storage.
  • Any fabric-covered furniture should be cleaned with an antibacterial agent; you will also want to make sure that the item is completely dry before putting it into storage to help prevent mold and mildew.
  • If you are planning to store appliances, you should wash them with either bleach or vinegar.
