Spring is a time for cleaning and for preparing your home for the warmer months once again. Most people go through a variety of different steps at the beginning of spring, including cleaning, decluttering, updated decorations, putting away seasonal items, and more. These are all things you can do without access to self-storage, but having an affordable and convenient storage unit to put extra items helps keep your home neat and speeds up the cleaning process substantially.

Use Storage to Declutter

One of the biggest goals of spring cleaning is to revitalize your home and to declutter the space while deep cleaning every single surface. This is a time-consuming process, and it can be difficult to get through if you don't know where to put all the extra items that have accumulated around your home. This is where Kelowna storage units can really help. 

With a high-quality unit available to you, you'll always have a place to put those seasonal items and any extras that you don't use often but that you don't want to get rid of. As you go through your home and find items to get rid of and others to sell, you should also set aside everything you want to store for now. Put these items into boxes and label them clearly so you can store them effectively. 

Pack Away Seasonal Items

Your Airport Village self-storage facility gives you the space you need to put away any seasonal items you won't be using during the spring and summer months. Things like snowshoes, snowboards, skis, winter jackets, hats, and scarves, and seasonal decorations can all be put away until after summer again. 

As long as you put these items into protective containers and you label those containers carefully, everything will be preserved and ready for you to use the following fall and winter. 

Tackle Spring Maintenance Tasks

As we get into the spring months, there are some maintenance tasks that you'll want to complete as soon as possible. As part of preparing for warm weather, you'll find yourself clearing out the gutters, patching any damage to your roofing, repairing window screens, making repairs to chipped paint, clearing your vents, tuning up your AC system if you have one, and more. If your home has storm windows, you'll also want to take those down and store them away until it begins getting cold again. 

Many of the maintenance tasks you complete in spring are tasks you'll only do once a year. For that reason, it makes sense to keep specialized tools and equipment for those tasks tucked away in storage until you need them each spring. Complete all your maintenance tasks, and then set aside the specialized tools you use and place them into storage to keep your home cleaner and to prevent unnecessary clutter. 

Bring Back Outdoor Items

Storage units are the perfect location for packing away outdoor furniture pieces you won't use during the winter. By putting your outdoor items into storage over winter, you're protecting them and decluttering your outdoor space as well. Once it begins warming up again, it's time to think about pulling out that furniture so you can enjoy it once again. 

While going to your self-storage facility to get out any decorations or warm-weather clothing you have and to put in any of your winter belongings, you should also take out your outdoor furniture and outdoor decorations if you have any stored there. 

Spring is the ideal time to clean up your home and to make improvements while preparing the space for outdoor living and warm weather again. With access to the right self-storage space, you can accomplish many of the most common spring cleaning tasks quicker and with less effort.
