Spring Cleaning? Consider Renting a Storage Unit in West Maui

Spring Cleaning? 

Consider Renting a Storage Unit in West Maui


It’s that time of year when the days are finally long enough to get something useful done around the house and yard. Now you can tackle those carpet stains, the cluttered closets, the hardwood floors that need refinishing and some walls that could use a fresh coat of paint. Spring cleaning is never a task one looks forward to, but it can dramatically improve the quality of your home.

Whether you are doing a full-house cleaning or you are just planning to remove some of the clutter, renting a storage unit in West Maui can help you get things out of your way and stowed away! A self-storage facility is also a great place to store those items you don’t need around all the time, but will need occasionally or seasonally. These are the items you don’t want to give away, donate or sell; however, keeping them in the house or garage does add to your clutter.

A Few Storage Tips for Spring Cleaning

You can make spring cleaning a little less daunting by being prepared. Some things you can do to get through the cleaning and re-organizing tasks include:

  • Get the garage in order. Do you have a large garage but nowhere to park your car? Spring is the perfect time to not just clean inside, but outside too. Move all of those items cluttering up your garage into a storage unit in West Maui and then take advantage of the empty garage to really clean it. Not only will you be able to park your car, but you can make maintaining a tidy garage a lot easier the rest of the year. 
  • Do a decluttering session. As you are cleaning room by room, stop and pull out items you no longer need in those rooms. Create piles that you want to keep, piles that can be thrown away and a donation pile. If you have décor items or furniture pieces you no longer want in the house, but cannot get rid of right away, move them into your rental storage unit. Remember to pack carefully, especially fragile things, to avoid damage during moving or while in storage, and label everything so you know what each box contains. 
  • Go through closets, attic and basement storage areas. Don’t forget to reorganize your home’s interior storage spaces. As you pull stuff from each storage space, see what you can move to your storage unit and what items you can donate or sell. For example, old baby clothes in the basement that you no longer need, but want to keep for your nieces, nephews and grandchildren can be boxed up and stored in your unit to free up space in your home. 

Spring cleaning is a lot of work, but it has a satisfying payoff. You will have a cleaner, brighter and a lot less cluttered home. Renting a storage unit in West Maui can help make your home feel more spacious, giving your family more room to enjoy this summer and the rest of the year.
