Spring Cleaning: Clean Out the Garage, De-Clutter and Store Items at A-1 Self Storage Fullerton

Spring cleaning can be very refreshing, and you’d be surprised how much space you can free up by tackling this task. It can be a daunting prospect to begin with, but this can be overcome by allocating an entire weekend to the task. It also helps to have a plan which includes getting a Fullerton storage unit to house anything you don’t want to get rid of completely, but you don’t need to have at home.

So let’s explore how to get the job done so you can make the most of your home and some Fullerton self storage solutions.


What do you need to keep and what do you want to store?

The best way to begin is by focusing on one room at a time. Let’s suppose you begin with your garage. Items you use on a regular basis will need to be kept there, but there will also be lots of things you hardly ever need but don’t want to get rid of. These are the items you should put into a self storage Fullerton CA unit.

You might find it easiest to make three piles of items as you go through your possessions. You will undoubtedly come across items you will want to get rid of altogether. Make a rubbish pile for these and bin them, donate them or recycle them wherever you can. Next, make a pile of items to keep in your garage (or whichever room you are clearing out). Finally, make a pile of items to be taken to a Fullerton storage unit.

Once you have cleared out the whole garage, you can spring clean it properly by sweeping and cleaning all the surfaces. You might benefit from buying some cabinets, shelving or other storage items to help keep things tidy from now onwards. Once this is done, you can see how many items you want to put into storage, and start looking for the right sized self storage units in Fullerton for your requirements.

De-cluttering isn’t just about making your home look tidier.

It’s also about keeping your home safer and more pleasant to live in. We’ve all read stories of people who wouldn’t throw anything away or put anything into storage units in Fullerton. Instead they horde all their items until they become a hazard to their health. This might sound extreme, but papers and other similar items can be a fire hazard. Furthermore, piles of disorganised and poorly stored possessions can be a tripping hazard too. This is why it makes sense to rely on A-1 Self Storage Fullerton if you want to ensure you only keep what you need at home.

Many people also underestimate the value of the items they have at home. It’s easy to do, but it can lead to woefully inadequate home insurance. The process of de-cluttering your home will enable you to see exactly how many items you have that you would like to have insured. This is a good time to check the value of your insurance, so you can see whether it actually meets your needs or not. You may find by spring cleaning every room in your home you discover you have many more items of value than you thought you had. This allows you to check your coverage and change your policy if necessary. It might also be worth considering changing it anyway, and getting a more competitive quote. You’ll be surprised how pro-active you feel, simply by having a clear out! It also works well to keep a note of everything you are keeping at home while you do this, to ensure you get an accurate total of the value of your belongings.

Organizing your storage space in Fullerton.

Once you have arranged some self storage Fullerton, you can take those items you want to store there to your storage unit. It’s a good idea to store things in an orderly manner here too, especially if you want to be able to find them again! Label boxes and keep everything in a logical and easy to access way.


The best part about spring cleaning is how good it makes you feel. You’ll feel positive and energized by creating more space in your home and having somewhere for everything to go. Once you get started you’ll get into the swing of things and you’ll realize just how many items you don’t need to keep at home. With self storage in Fullerton providing the additional storage space you need, it couldn’t be easier to spring clean in a way you’ve never done before. Make the most of it and enjoy the benefits of a cleaner, brighter home today.
