Fort Mill SC Self Storage Tips

Seasonal Clothing

  1. Place boxes along the edges of your storage unit with labels facing out. The key to storage, is organization.
  2. Before taping the moving boxes closed, go through and make a few edits to clothes you no longer wear.

Patio Chairs

  1. Fabric covers and cushions that sit outside all season hold in pollen and dirt. Before moving chair pads to storage, clean with soap and water or send off to an industrial cleaning company.
  2. A touch of bleach in your soapy water will lift stains from the last cookout.
  3. For plastic chairs, give them a fresh new look with paint or wax.
  4. Metal chairs and tables get rust fast after a season of summer storms. If you notice a spot of rust, sand it down and reapply paint to protect it while in storage.

Outdoor Tools and AppliancesĀ 

  1. Once grilling season is over, remove grates, burners, and utensils so they can be cleaned. Leaving food remnants on the grill will attract critters in your unit.
  2. Propane and similar flammable items should be left at home. Gasoline tanks, propane, charcoal, etc. should be stored at home in a safe, cool environment.
