Spring Cleaning & Storage!

Spring Cleaning & Storage Solutions!

Spring is officially here, and that means it’s time for green grass, fresh air, blooming flowers and spring cleaning. Now that you’ve thrown open all the windows to let in the clean, spring air, you are probably in the midst of doing some cleaning around the house and in the yard. Whether you are dusting and sweeping inside, or raking up the yard outside, you may want to consider renting a self-storage unit to remove some of the clutter that has built up over the winter. This will make it easier for you to get your spring cleaning done, and while you’re at it you might also consider doing some redecorating. A reliable storage facility like Annacis Lock Up is a great place to store items you want to keep safe and dry, but are in the way of your cleaning or are not part of your new decorating scheme. Offering indoor and outdoor, as well as heated and non-heated storage units in Delta (Greater Vancouver) and on Annacis Island, Annacis Lock Up is prepared to handle any and all of your storage needs this spring. And while your stuff is safely in storage, here are a few spring cleaning tips on how you can take full advantage of a self-storage unit:

  • Clean out your cupboards, cabinets and shelves and wipe them down. If there are stacks of papers or bills that are taking up space, now would be a good time to put them in a self-storage unit.
  • If you plan to paint or give your carpets a thorough cleaning, you may want to move your furniture into a short term storage unit.
  • Separate your seasonal clothes, or things you don’t wear very often from clothes that are better suited to the warmer weather. By moving the clothes you don’t need into storage, you’ll certainly save on closet space and avoid unnecessary clutter.
  • There is a season for snow blowers, snow shovels and winter toys like sleds and snowboards, but right now they’re probably just taking up space. Having a storage unit to keep these items in is a practical way to keep your home tidy this spring. You may consider keeping a storage unit year round, so you will have a place to put your patio furniture, lawn mower and any other seasonal equipment you won’t need in the winter.


There are many ways having a storage unit can make spring cleaning much easier. With locations on Annacis Island and in Delta, Annacis Lock Up has facilities to store and protect your furniture, tools, seasonal equipment and more so you can get a start on enjoying the spring weather.
