Self Storage Tips for Storing Outdoor Gear

Self Storage Tips

  • Storing boats and kayaks? Retire them for the season a few days before you want to store them. To make sure all the moisture is captured, place DampRid in different spots throughout the unit.
  • Restaurants, it is time to move the patio furniture in. Give everything a spotless cleaning and maybe even a fresh coat of paint before storing for the winter.
  • Wood tables and chairs should be thoroughly cleaned and a heavy duty cover should be placed to further protect them.
  • Pool season is drawing to an end, but ensure your pool toys have time to dry out before moving to storage.
  • When storing them, clearly mark pool chemicals and avoid stacking them.
  • Remove grease and food scraps from the grates and tools of your grill. Once all food has been removed prevent moisture from rusting the metal by applying a coat of oil to metal parts.
  • Sharpen gardening tools now, so come spring you can get to work sprucing up the outside.
  • Replace the lawn mower with the snow blower in your storage unit. Remove any flammable liquids from the mower before closing your storage unit.
