Spring Cleaning Your Storage Unit

Spring is in full swing which means longer days, warmer weather, and everyone’s favorite activity – spring cleaning. While decluttering and reorganizing might not be your most anticipated task, it’s a great opportunity for a fresh start in your home, vehicle, and even in your storage unit. At Advantage Storage, we’re proud to offer a variety of storage unit sizes, customer-focused amenities, and convenient locations across five states to make your self storage journey a breeze. 

Declutter and Reorganize 

If you visit your unit often to take items out or add new belongings, it’s easy for things to become disorganized and out of space. Take time to sort through each item and return it to its original location. If you have a lot of boxes, shelving units are a great way to organize them without having to stack one on top of each other. While sorting through boxes, you might even come across items that you no longer want or need. Remove these to clear space for additional storage later on. 

Take Time to Clean

It wouldn’t be spring cleaning without a deep clean of your unit. During the sorting and reorganizing process is a great time to dust off boxes, sweep the floors, and make sure all furniture is properly covered. Furniture and mattress covers are a great way to prevent dirt and dust buildup, and can even protect your items against scuffs or scratches during the moving process. Once you need the item again, it’ll be much easier to clean off and move into your home.  

Replace Storage Containers

Spring cleaning is a good time to replace any boxes or storage containers that are falling apart. The last thing you want is to pick up a box and have the bottom give out. Plastic totes are a great replacement for boxes because they’re studier and often hold more. As you replace the containers, label each one with the contents. It will make finding what you are looking for much easier the next time you visit your unit.  

Rotate Your Seasonal Wardrobe and Décor 

Spring is a great time to switch out your seasonal wardrobe too. As the weather warms, you can pack away snow boots and bulky sweaters and swap them for shorts, light jackets, and rain boots. This is a great opportunity to transition your closet from fall and winter clothes to spring and summer. There are a few do’s and don’ts of transitioning season clothing, so be sure to read up and make this process a breeze. 

While you transition your wardrobe, you can also rotate your seasonal décor. Now is a good opportunity to move your holiday décor back to your storage unit, and bring out your spring and summer decorations.
