How to Clean Out Your Overfilled Storage Unit?

A lot of us rent storage units when we’re in a pinch and need to store a lot of stuff quickly. Maybe your kid is coming home from college for the summer and they need somewhere to put their belongings before their next lease starts, or perhaps a loved one died and you need more time to go through their things. Regardless, when you’re rushing to clear out your storage space or declutter, some things will have to go or get reordered. After all, storage units can fill up fast without good organization. Today, Mad Trash Fort Worth has some great tips to help you declutter and reorganize your storage. 

Ask your family for help

A lot of times, we hold onto our precious family heirlooms so we can pass them down through the generations. Sadly, no one is getting to enjoy those precious artifacts if you’re just storing them in your Fort Worth storage unit. One easy way you can free up some storage space is by letting your family members comb through your belongings and take some family heirlooms home where they can proudly display them.

Rent a dumpster

Cleaning out a storage unit can be a long, ongoing process. For many people, the best solution is to just rent a dumpster so they can declutter in their own time. Dumpster rentals are great for throwing out old papers, broken appliances, and more. 

Donate old stuff

You should throw out anything in poor condition, but nice clothes, jewelry, appliances, and the like can be taken to local donation dropoffs and charities. If you don’t have time to do it yourself, just put it in a pile and Mad Trash Fort Worth will come get it and donate it for you! Our curbside junk removal services are totally convenient. All you have to do is text us a picture of your items, we’ll send you a competitively priced quote, and once you approve it– we can pick up your items the same day!

Reorganize everything

If you’re planning to keep your storage unit, but you don’t want it to turn into another hoarder’s situation, then we recommend that you find some waterproof storage units where you can file everything away. Plastic bins with lids are great because you can easily stack them, but if you need easy access you can also line three-drawer towers along the walls of your storage unit. Experiment with different ways of stacking and organizing to maximize efficiency and get the most out of your space and make the monthly cost of your Fort Worth storage unit worth it. 

Get Cleaning

Now, the aforementioned steps will work perfectly if you’re just hoping to declutter and reorganize your storage unit. However, to get your storage unit in shape before handing in the keys, you’ll need to do some more serious junk removal, trash pickup, and cleaning. Once you’ve removed all of your things from the storage unit, sweep up any dust and scrape up any residue that may have been left behind.
