It’s That Time of Year Again



That time of year has arrived when the days get longer, and it becomes easier to do something about the carpet stains, dust and stale air that have built up during the last few weeks and, perhaps, months. Finally, you can throw open all of the windows and let in the fresh air without freezing. Now, get ready to revitalize your home with a good spring cleaning and StoreRight Self Storage can help. Whether you conduct a full-house cleaning once a year or once a month, you may want to consider renting a storage unit at StoreRight Self Storage to get things out of the way during the process. StoreRight Self Storage is a great place to store items for the long-term and short-term, for those items you’re not ready to toss, sell or donate.
Clean from the top down, dusting and washing ceiling fans, light fixtures and corners first. Then wipe and wash walls, windows, counters, furniture and floors. Try cleaning windows from the inside from left to right and the outside from the top down. This will make it easier to tell which side has streaks. Replace smoke detector batteries, test the smoke detectors and give them a good wipe down. Clear counters and shelves and wash them thoroughly. If you have accumulated stacks of papers or bills, now is a good time to file the important documents in your storage unit. Recycle junk mail, outdated magazines. Shred old bills and other papers that contain personal information. Pull out appliances and wash the sides and floor.

When cleaning mattresses and other furniture, consider laying down a tarp and leaving the bedding and upholstery outside on the driveway for a few hours. Some strong sunlight and ultraviolet radiation can help eradicate microscopic creatures that are trying to take up residence there. A thorough steam cleaning may leave your furniture feeling and smelling fresh also. If you plan to paint or thoroughly shampoo the carpets, consider moving your furniture into a storage unit. StoreRight Self Storage has Wardrobe boxes so you can sort through seasonal clothes. A wardrobe box helps keep clothes looking good.


As you clean, you may find leaky faucets, broken door handles or cracked tiles. Take time to make these repairs now to prevent them from becoming more serious or costly problems later. Get seldom used tools out of the way when you are done with the repairs by placing them in your storage unit at StoreRight Self Storage. Remember the small stuff. Sweep the corners where your vacuum does not reach, wash down air vents & wipe crown molding.


Don’t forget the outside of the house. Use a power sprayer to remove grime, empty wasps’ nests and spider webs from exterior walls and windows. Spray down the garage floor while you are at it to rid the space of fluid leaks or sand that can easily be tracked inside and stain your carpet. Clean it. A good spraying with the hose will usually do the trick.
