Tips for storing your furniture
After your car and house, your furniture is generally the next biggest asset. So it makes sense that you look after it when putting it into storage.
Below are a few tips to ensure your furniture comes out of storage in the same condition it went in.
- Clean furniture before putting into storage
You don't want to leave crumbs etc on your couch to attract cockroaches etc (NB: Osborne Park Storage has a thorough pest control program).
Not to mention letting stains become permanent over time.
- Ensure furniture is completely dry before putting into storage
Storing wet furniture can lead to mould etc.
- Cover valuable furniture
The cover will protect the furniture from bumps and scratches when moving and exposure etc when in storage. Avoid using plastic covers
in storage as this can lead to a build-up of humidity and promote mould etc.
- Remove legs of furniture for moving and storage
This will minimise the risk of breaking off a leg when moving your furniture. It also allows you to stack your furniture closer together
when putting it into storage.
- Polish timber furniture before storage
This will help protect the wood while in storage. Just make sure you do this a few weeks before storage so it has time to dry fully.
- Treat leather furniture
Similar to the timber furniture, it is also advisable to treat your leather furniture with leather conditioner before storage.
- Consider wiping metal furniture with oil
This, of course, depends on what sort of furniture it is, but wiping oil over metal surfaces can help prevent rusting.
- Leave some space between furniture
This allows air to circulate around your furniture and will help prevent it becoming musty.
- Spray soft furnishings with an anti-bacterial spray
This can help prevent anything unwanted growing on your furniture.
- Store electrical equipment in boxes
The original box is perfect for this, but if you didn't keep it, then just pack into a packing box.
- Wedge open doors on fridges, washing machines and dishwashers
This prevents the build-up of moisture and bad odours.
Just a few handy tips for furniture storage. One last point, be sure you pack your furniture so you know how to find what you need when you need
