How do you store furniture long term for Mansfield?
Choosing your storage company is the first thing, make sure its clean and modern and well maintained.
Make sure you clean what items you can before wrapping them, no one likes a smelly storage room as if you plan to travel for a considerable length of time this is what tends to happen.
Take It Apart: its always best to take your items appart such as wardrobes, beds and tables, you will find this way you can make the most of your space.
Wrap furniture for long stays: if you are going away for only 3 months then its not so important. But f you are travelling for a year or more consider that we have 4 seasons in a year and storage centres are not climate controlled, this will unfortunately allow wood to expand and shrink due to the moisture in the air. However if you take little Tim you can make sure that your priceless heirlooms are kept tip top condition for your arrival back. Just by putting items in a box ca help with this or adding moth balls inside plastic sheeting.
Protect your glass items:
glass tabletops, mirrors and glass cabinets require extra precaution due to there size and shape. Try to bubble wrap and also put cardboard around it if possible.
6. Sofa Storage: storage: when storing sofas you can either put them on there end so gaining full use of the height but this is only advisable if you put cardboard down before doing to to protect against moist.
7. Food Storage: food is one of the items that are not allowed to be stored in storage as when left for long periods they start to go off and smell, they also encourage rats into your storage room.
8. Try not to over pack your unit: Remember your items need to break and packing them to the rafters is never a good idea as like most items like wood and wool they need to breath to remove the moister, this is why its always a good idea to wrap your items so they don’t get mold on them.
