Why storage better than closets?

Storage units come in all shapes and sizes. While often seen as places to dump things that are seldom used. There is a new trend in their use. Many customers are using them as extensions to their closets. Now, they are no longer filling spare rooms, basements, or attics with seasonal clothes, baby gear or any other items of clothing, which can become moth bitten, moldy or homes for insects.

Read on and learn why these storage facilities are delivering countless benefits, and how you can use them to care for all your excess clothing.

Saving space in home closets

Many individuals never wear more than half of what is in their closet. With space at a premium in Concord NC, this mountain of clothes (especially seasonal) can be wasting valuable space when there is a large family. Storage units are the ideal places to gather up the families, hardly worn clothes, and pack them away until they are needed.

One of the other reasons these storage facilities are ideal is you can spread clothes out and care for them correctly. If they are in basements or attics, they will get damp and moldy. Once this happens, the only place good enough for them is the trash. Climate controlled mini storage units are perfect for stopping clothes, getting damp, and thus moldy.

How to care for clothes in Concord NC self storage units

First is to go through all your things and gather them together. Resist the urge to keep some items because once you do this, you find you are not clearing out, and are instead just having a shift of clothes.

The crucial step is to wash everything and make sure it is perfectly dry before packing it away. One drop of moisture will lead to mold, and all your efforts will be wasted.

Packing will be vital. Never place things in sealed plastic bags as these trap moisture. Clothes need to breathe, so use plastic totes and place heavier items toward the bottom. Never stack on the floor and use old pallets, or even better, get some garage storage shelves to use.

Keep a list for your Concord NC storage units
