In addition to moving services, Sorensen Moving and Storage offers a state of the art storage facility. Since many customers utilize this storage, here are a few suggestions for those who are preparing to place their belongings in storage.
Appliances: Before placing your appliances in storage, it is always best to clean them beforehand. After it has been cleaned, make sure that it is dry to avoid molding and mildew. Also, make sure that the appliance is completely empty before placing it in storage.
Leather furniture: Clean and treat with leather conditioner before placing in storage.
Photos: Because photographs tend to curl over time, place them in between pieces of cardboard to keep them flat before putting them in storage. However, because photos generally do not take up much space, it is best to keep important photos with you. Never put irreplaceable pictures in storage.
Mattresses: To protect from dust and moisture, place mattresses in plastic covers before storing.
What not to store: Additionally, there are some items that are not suitable for storage. Do not store any of the following:
-Flammables (gas, diesel, oil, paint, etc.)
-Jewelry or other expensive items
-Firearms, munitions, gunpowder, and explosives
-Plants or any other living things
-Hazardous materials and waste storage (lead paint, asbestos, urea formaldehyde, petroleum, methane, medical waste, etc.)
