Tips to Declutter Your Home

Boston storage unitsDecluttering a space can be a rewarding and therapeutic process to many homeowners.  When it comes to organizing your space, On Demand Storage is here to help by not only supplying convenient Boston storage units but by providing helpful tips to clean your area.

Since the kitchen is a vital area in your home, we recommend starting the decluttering process there. Cardboard boxes are often bulky and inefficient when it comes to keeping your food clean, which is why we like to store our food in airtight storage containers and jars. Containers save space in your cabinets and pantry by being stackable and more proficient. While transferring your food to storage containers, we recommend tossing any food or spices that may be old or never to clear space for new food.

Moving on to the living room area and entrance area, we recommend utilizing baskets to help organize your space. Baskets are a great way to keep items together while hiding them visually. We like to store shoes in baskets near the front door while using baskets to store blankets and movies in the living room. Baskets add a decorative touch to your space while helping organize your items.

At On Demand Storage, we provide clean and affordable Boston storage units to help store the items you may not have room for in your home. Contact us today at (855) 216-6617 to learn more about our prices and facilities.


5 Tips to Storing a Couch Properly

Boston storage unitsAt OnDemand Storage, we understand the importance of safeguarding your belongings by properly storing them to ensure you can use them for years to come. Below we have listed 5 tips on how to properly store and preserve your couch in our Boston storage units.

  1. Say no to plastic! It is vital to allow your furniture to breathe during the moving and storing process. While many believe plastic safeguards your couches from debris and dirt, it actually damages your furniture by suffocating the fabric.
  2. Say yes to old sheets! Instead of covering your couch with plastic, utilize old sheets and blankets to cover your couches during the move and in storage. These materials are best to protect your couch because it allows the fabric to breathe while protecting the fabric from scratches and dirt.
  3. It is important to ensure your couch is 4 to 8 inches away from walls to allow for proper airflow within the unit.
  4. We recommend storing your couch horizontally rather than vertical due to the damage that can result to the coils and inner parts of your couch.
  5. Refrain from using your couch as another surface for storage. Stacking heavy items on your couch can result in damage and rips in the fabric.

  1. No Renting or Borrowing a Truck –  Nobody likes driving a large truck, it’s a stressful and anxiety inducing experience. We’re used to driving around in our sedans (maybe an SUV) and then all of a sudden we’re expected to a load a giant rental truck full of our valuables and maneuver it up to a service door so we can unload it?  The only scenario worse than renting a truck is asking a friend to borrow their truck!
