Summer is here and you need somewhere to store all your winter gear. Our self storage in Brentwood UK will help.
Summer has arrived. The sun is shining, the sunscreen is on, the barbecue is lit, all is good except your house is cluttered with all your winter clothes and sports gear. Nobody wants to be fighting past skis to get to the tennis rackets, or jumpers to get to your beautiful summer clothes.
It is time to get your winter gear packed away and stored. Here we will take you through some tips and why our self storage Brentwood UK will help.
First up, declutter
When it comes to storing your clothes, your first port of call should be a declutter. Yes, I know this can be a dreaded word for many people but with your winter clothes it should be easy.
Simply ask yourself:
What did I not wear this year?
This will give you all the items that you can donate instead of putting it away into storage, saving space for the items you actually wear.
Wash everything you want to store
Next up is washing all the items that you are going to store. Storing clothes without washing them first will make stains and odours bed into them which will make them harder to remove when winter rolls back around and the smell can attract pests and moths.
Winter sport equipment
When it comes to winter sport equipment you have to deal with much in the same way as winter clothes: make sure it is clean, do any repairs that need to be done before storing and wash and dry any clothing.
How will you store everything?
Vacuum bags or air tight plastic containers are the best way in which to store items as they will keep everything safe from moths and dry but you will need to find a place to put them.
For your sport equipment you will need a designated area which has plenty of space as you will need to store all the clothing but also large pieces of equipment such as skis or snowboards.
You need to find somewhere that is cool, dry and away from sunlight. Basements or lofts can work if they are temperature controlled.
Another option would be to use our self storage Brentwood UK.
