Fall Is Upon Us

Label with the Words Hello Autumn and Autumn Leaves in the Background

Fall is almost here! As we transition into fall, this calls for the opportunity to organize and tidy up our houses to prepare for the next season. While you can take advantage of a storage unit at any time of the year, with winter (and the holidays) around the corner it makes it especially important to gear up and protect your belongings. In case you are wondering how to store your seasonal items safely we have some tips to help better prepare you.

  • Store your yard equipment – There is no need to take up extra space in your garage if you aren’t mowing your lawn or gardening. Make sure to drain all the liquids from your lawnmower and other tools as this will help prevent corrosion. Are you planning on storing any outdoor furniture? Remember to clean your furniture items to avoid damage and also use a climate controlled storage unit for extra protection.
  • Store Season Outdoor Toys –  It’s time to secure your boat, bikes and any recreational vehicles. The winter holiday season can be hectic with all of the family and guests arriving. To provide you with more space in your driveway for holiday guests, keeping your summer toys in storage can guarantee extra protection from theft and damage.
  • Switch out seasonal clothing items – One easy way to free up a jam-packed closet or dresser is to swap out your summer wardrobe for warmer items. Pack away your swimsuits and shorts. Take the opportunity to sort through your clothing items and decide if it’s time to donate them. You may find that some of your clothes are either too small, worn out or out of style. Consider doing this in your entryway coat closet as well.
  • Don’t forget about the grill- Give your BBQ grill a deep clean before covering and storing it. Be sure to scrape down the grates and, wipe down the inside as well.
  • Clean Out Gutters – While the weather is still nice it’s recommended to  clean out your gutters. Cleaning gutters for winter will mean less work when spring rolls back around.
