First off, you need to know some general rules on how to adequately prepare your furniture for storage and then how to actually store it properly.
Preparation for storing your furniture
Your belongings are going to stay in the storage unit for a certain amount of time. It would be wise to choose a storage space that is climate controlled – that way you can minimize the possibility of your stuff getting damaged due to humidity or high temperatures. Secondly, even if you choose from some top-notch storage units Kuwait has to offer, you still need to prepare your furniture. Keep reading to find out how.
Disassembling and cleaning
Before you get started, make sure you have the right tools for this task. You want to start by breaking down everything that is meant to be disassembled and reassembled. We’re talking wooden furniture. Remove the headboards, footboard, chair legs, table legs, etc. You are doing this to save space as much as possible.
Since your furniture is going to be in the storage unit for a while, you need to clean it thoroughly beforehand. This is to avoid any bacteria or mold developing. Grab some rags and cleaning agents and get started:
- clean and wax all wooden surfaces – this is for hygiene reasons but also to add some needed moisture to the wood, so it doesn’t become too dry and start cracking
- find an antibacterial cleaner that is safe for fabric and wipe the chairs, sofas, mattresses; give it plenty of time to dry
Protecting and wrapping
You don’t want to risk damaging anything, so you want to wrap and pack your furniture as well as possible. If you don’t want to go through this trouble yourself, you can choose from some excellent residential moving companies Kuwait has to offer. They can protect your furniture for you while you relax knowing your belongings are in safe hands. If you want to do it on your own, here’s how to do it:
- place padded covers or blankets over furniture – this will help protect your furniture during the move itself, as well as while it’s in the storage unit.
- wrap upholstered furniture with bubble wrap and use tape to secure the wrap, making sure that the tape doesn’t adhere to the furniture (otherwise it might leave nasty glue marks)
Storing your furniture in Kuwait
Now that your furniture is ready to be put away, you need to know how to put it away adequately. Imagine you are playing a real-life gigantic game of Tetris. Think about how to flip and turn different pieces so you can place items one on top of the other without damaging anything. You want to utilize the space as much as possible.
We hope that storing your furniture in Kuwait is going to be a breeze after you’ve read these tips. Good luck!
