There is just something about spring that causes people to start wanting to clean up and remove clutter from their homes - so much so that we call it spring cleaning. Spring cleaning can be a great way to remove stress and mess from your life, but there are times when we run across a simple problem: we have too many things, but don't want to get rid of any of them! The solution to this problem is simple: while you're spring cleaning, put some of your things into storage.
Too Much Stuff
Often, the problem that we face when trying to clean our homes is that we simply have too many things. There are certainly ways to begin removing things from your life, such as donating them to friends or charity, but we often find ourselves in a situation where the things we have left over after spring cleaning are items we love and treasure, not things we want to give away. When that's the case, we need a solution to store our beloved items, so that they can still be ours, but not be in our way. The perfect solution in this scenario is to rent a storage unit from a local storage company.
What to Look For
When it comes to finding the perfect storage unit for your precious things, you don't want to place them in just any storage unit. Improperly managed storage units can cause damage to your stored items and are often easy targets for thieves. Instead, you should do your research beforehand and find a reputable company that offers a few specific amenities.
The most important thing is an excellent security system. Padlocked doors may seem safe, but they are easy for a thief with bolt cutters to break into, especially if there is not around-the-clock security available at the facility to keep an eye on things. You want a unit with state of the art security in a facility that maintains a 24-7 security force or system.
Next, you want to find a unit that is both climate and pest controlled. Humidity, temperature fluctuations and pests can all be destructive forces in a storage unit, especially if you have to leave your belongings there for an extended period of time. By ensuring that your unit is climate and pest controlled, you can help to keep your belongings safe and intact no matter the duration of your storage.
