How Do I Prepare My Items for Heated Storage?
While heated storage units do a lot in the way of protecting your items from damage caused by extremely cold temperatures, there are still some precautions you can take as you begin to prepare your items for long-term storage. The first step is to begin organizing and creating a list of items that need to be stored. This will help you as you begin packing items up to ensure you pack the correct items and keep similar items stored together.
You will also need to purchase the proper items for storage such as boxes, tape, and bubble wrap. The next step is to clean all your items based on the material they are made of in order to prevent rusting, dust accumulation, and other damage. Anything made of leather or metal such as brass or silver should be polished as well.
Once all of your items are cleaned, you can begin the process of packing everything up for storage. Make sure to wrap anything that is breakable and label boxes for easy access. When you’re ready to place your items into your heated storage unit, it’s important to keep items off the ground and cover any furniture you plan on storing.
