While winter is more of a concept than a reality in Phoenix, it’s still refreshing when spring arrives. The days get longer, the trees start to grow new leaves, and the temperatures are absolutely beautiful (at least for a few weeks, until they hit triple digits).
Maybe that’s why, even in Phoenix, the idea of spring cleaning is an attractive one. We want to hit the reset button on our homes, clear out the clutter, dust every nook and cranny, and enjoy a fresh, new start.
When most people think about spring cleaning, they think about all their cleaning supplies: the sprays, the cloths, the vacuums, and the tools. What they don’t often think about, though, is something that could truly be a game-changer for anyone taking on a spring cleaning project. That is self storage.
Self storage units are incredibly convenient when you’re moving, holding an estate sale, or storing extra inventory for your business. But they also provide an excellent solution to everyday storage—the kind that frees up tons of space in your home and leaves it feeling spacious, clean, and uncluttered.
Here are some things you should consider moving to self storage as part of your spring cleaning routine:
Although the Phoenix area doesn’t have to deal with ice and snow in the winter, we can still experience some pretty low temperatures, and many of us tend to have a good collections of sweaters, coats, scarves, and other cold-weather gear. As part of your spring cleaning, pack these thing away in a storage unit and free up the space in your closet or under your bed.
Winter sports gear.
If you’re the type that gets away on skiing trips every winter, there’s no need to fill up your garage with your gear during the summer months. Pack it all away into your storage unit instead.
During your spring cleaning, you’ll probably come across some items in your home that don’t get much use: unnecessary furniture pieces, extra small kitchen appliances, and so on. If you don’t want to get rid of these things, self storage gives you the chance to safely store them in a place that’s out of the way.
Decluttering is a big part of spring cleaning. Getting rid of excess “stuff” in your house does a lot to make a home feel open, bright, and fresh. Of course, most of us have some sentimental items that, while we don’t use them regularly, are too meaningful to give up (family heirlooms, linens, kids memorabilia, collections, etc.). Utilize self storage space to get these things out of your house without getting rid of them entirely.
Spring cleaning is a great way to get your home in tip top shape before the summer heat hits. Take it up a notch this year by getting a self storage unit to help you get your home in tip top shape!
