Preparing furniture for Storage

Getting Ready For Storage

Removals can be difficult affairs, but we have a fair few tricks up our sleeves to make things simpler. When preparing your belongings for storage we have a number of recommendations to keep in mind.

Preparation is essential for any moving project, especially when it comes to furniture. If you wish for yours to retain its functionality, finish, and composition, you must clean it exhaustively. Of course, you need to double check that you’re using the most appropriate methods.

Wood furniture

With wood-based furnishings, you have to wipe them down with a clean cloth and polish. This will provide them with a protective finish. During the process of preparing your belongings for storage, you should also see if it’s possible to disassemble anything. Separate pieces are far easier to store than entire articles after all.

With fabric furniture, like mattresses and sofas for instance, there’s always the risk of mildew and mould developing if you don’t clean them correctly. Delicate materials, such as leather and silk, demand your personal attention. You can gently, cleanse different fabrics with a solution of warm water and antibacterial cleanser.

Metal furniture

If your furniture is metal, we suggest that you polish it prior to placing it in your storage unit. Such an action will go a long way to ensuring that the finish remains safe. If your goods are being stored over the long-term, you’ll need to employ a lacquer to defend the metal’s condition.

At Hanlon Bros, we go to great lengths to ensure that our storage solutions can offer you supreme results. The purpose-built warehouse we use comes equipped with 24-hour CCTV security. In addition, it is completely insured.
