You need to store your furniture and you don’t know what to do, well, here we will tell you everything you need to know to store your belongings in the best possible way. To do this, the first thing you should know is that there are specialised companies that provide large, comfortable and safe conditioned spaces for this activity.
This type of service is called furniture storage, and is basically a company that owns large warehouses, storage rooms or facilities that have been designed to store any type of object that can be found in a home or office.
How to select a company with Furniture Storage?
In Mallorca there are several companies that provide this type of service, however, not all of them have the necessary requirements to guarantee a top-quality service. In this sense, it is very important for a furniture repository to have 24-hour security, adequate lighting in all areas, a maintenance service, surveillance cameras, a fire detection system, among others.
In addition to this, it is essential for a furniture repository to offer the possibility of taking out an insurance policy in case of loss, damage, theft, fire or any other eventuality, as well as having a convenient and flexible timetable that adapts to the client’s needs.
What you should know before storing your furniture
Before taking your belongings to a furniture repository, make sure you take the time to protect them properly, especially if you plan to store them for a long period of time. For this reason, it is essential to do some research into the different characteristics and security features offered by a particular furniture repository.
In this sense, storing furniture in external containers is not the same as storing it in professional furniture repository companies, although it is true that the first option is a little cheaper, it does not have the right conditions for safe storage, so the second option makes more sense.
Once we have chosen the furniture repository company, we need to thoroughly clean all the items we are going to store, to make sure everything is clean and that no rubbish or dust has been brought into the place. To do this, it is advisable to use a damp towel and wipe the entire surface of the furniture.
In the case of upholstery, you can use a fabric cleaner, and for metal objects, it is advisable to apply a dry cloth to avoid humidity and possible corrosion. Once you have done this, proceed to dismantle as much as you can to make sure you optimise storage space.
When you have disassembled the furniture make sure you identify all the pieces and store them together to avoid losing any of them. After this, wrap them in protective plastic or a padded blanket to make them more secure when transporting them.
In the case of glass items or delicate pieces, it is advisable to use double protection, in this case you can use bubble wrap and at the same time pack them in strong protective boxes to increase security.
Finally, do not overcrowd the place with too many objects and try to arrange them in the best possible order for when you have to take out a particular piece. Also, do not try to store food or perishable items, as they may decompose and bring mould, insects and bad smells.
