Remember Your Storage Unit When Spring Cleaning!
Warm temperatures and mild breezes make the perfect conditions for spring cleaning. While most everyone remembers to get the cobwebs out of the corners and wipe dust from the highest shelves, storage units often go out-of-sight-out-of-mind. At Holiday Self Storage, we invite you to spring clean-out your storage unit because of the benefits to you!
The Benefits of Spring Cleaning
Spring cleaning is a “tradition” that most people begrudgingly undertake, but seasonal deep cleaning comes with loads of benefits, such as:
Reduced allergen loads
When you remove all the dust that’s settled on your shelves, in the couch cushions, in the bedding, etc., you remove a load of stuff that can irritate skin and the respiratory system.
Research shows that a clutter-free environment is linked to higher productivity and a sense of well-being.
The stuff you don’t need any longer can find a new life at a number of thrift stores, and many charitable organizations provide receipts so you can claim your donation on your tax return.
Some spring cleaning may simply uncover items you don’t need right now but do not want to permanently part with. If your storage unit is full, there’s no place to keep them. By thinning out the contents of your storage unit, you make room for belongings that you know you want to keep and part with the contents you have discovered you really can live without.
What You Need for Spring Cleaning
Spring cleaning your storage unit is actually pretty simple. You don’t need mops, buckets or cleaning supplies. All you need are boxes and a willingness to let go of things that no longer serve a purpose in your life.
Holiday Self Storage does have dumpsters on-site for disposal of items that are not accepted at resale shops. However, if you have very large items to dispose of (like mattresses or furniture), please contact us. We can recommend transportation solutions to take these items off-site for appropriate disposal. Also, please make sure to safely dispose of any items classified as household hazardous materials, such as paint, CFL light bulbs, lithium ion batteries, etc. (Click here for more information.)
