Here Are Some Tips On The Proper Way To Store And Prepare Your Items:

  • When storing books and clothing, make sure to add naphthalene to prolong their storage life
  • Place large and less used items at the back of the storeroom whereas smaller items should be positioned at the front
  • Avoid wrapping items in plastics since this will promote humidity and then would result to moulds
  • Store heavier items at the bottom area
  • Boxes marked with fragile should not have anything placed on top of it
  • Boxes should be uniform in size for easier stacking and they should be of good quality to handle the weight
  • When storing frames, it is best to use boxes with integrated foam inserts
  • For breakables, make use of bubble wraps for added protection
  • For appliances like freezers and refrigerators, make sure that they are clean and dry for storage with a deodorizer inside them for added freshness.
  • Keeping the door slightly open will also provide good ventilation
  • Cooking equipment and stoves has to be thoroughly cleaned
  • Gardening items and other tools needs to be cleaned for storing them
  • Equipments that are battery operated like toys and flashlights needs to have their batteries removed for safe storage as batteries tend to leak and may cause damage
  • Store books in small carton flatly and not on their spines
  • Gadgets just like TV, stereos and computers have to be packed using their original boxes when possible. If not, then good quality boxes with bubble wrap will do. Just make sure to add wraps to fill in the gaps
  • Crockery, plates and other china items needs to be wrapped in white paper individually. Whereas, all the gaps within them needs to be filled with crumpled paper and placed in boxes labeled with fragile
  • It is best to dissemble bed and bed frames for easier storage
  • Drawer units and wardrobes should be emptied
  • Rugs, carpets and other upholstery needs to be vacuumed and cleaned before storage
  • Empty any machinery from oil and fuel to avoid leakage.  This is a fire hazard.
