How To Spring Clean By Using Self Storage

Finally, spring is here.  Spring is a great opportunity to declutter, organize and really deep clean your home.  It can be a lot of hard work to get your entire home cleaned, especially when every surface is covered with stuff. 

Many of the darkest corners and the most challenging spots can be difficult to clean because rooms are full of clutter or seasonal items.  Renting a storage unit can give you the extra space and flexibility you need to get your spring cleaning off to the right start.

At Riel Park RV & Self Storage, we have many storage options ideal for spring cleaning of any kind.  Whether you need a climate-controlled unit for temperature sensitive items or a garage sized unit for lots of items, we have you covered.


The best option to keep your home clutter free is to put away items that are needed for very specific uses or occasions, such as camping gear and suitcases.  You might also have collectibles, souvenirs, family heirlooms or some furniture that you don't yet want to get rid of. 

There is no point in keeping these items in the house at all moments taking up valuable space.  A self storage unit is ideal for getting these rarely used items out of the way.  St Albert Self Storage provides a clean and secure place so you can fully clean your home and keep it organized.


As you are cleaning and organizing, you will probably come across items you haven't used in awhile and no longer want.  A storage locker can store them out of the way until you're ready for a yard sale in the summer.  This ensures you can get to the spaces where those items might normally be stored, such as the garage or closets, and really clean them out.

If you are unsure of whether or not to keep an item, you can place these items in a storage unit until you decide.


When you're trying to free up space in your home, you might realize that seasonal items are taking up an awful lot of useful space.  Things like winter coats, skiing gear, snow removal items like shovels and snow blowers and holiday items can be stored until the fall.  A self-storage unit can help you get all these items out of the way until you need them again.  This will free up space in your garage or shed to store all of your summer toys.

To keep winter clothes in good shape and for easy transfer to your storage unit, use a wardrobe box with a hanging rod.

At Riel Park RV & Self Storage, we sell all kinds of moving and packing supplies to help make your spring cleaning easier.


Spring is also a busy time for home improvement projects and redecorating.  Whether you're painting, putting in new flooring or remodeling an entire kitchen renting a self storage unit in St Albert can help.  A self storage unit can provide the extra space you need so you are not tripping over boxes and furniture while working on your project.

You also don't want to worry about damaging valuables or dripping paint on your furniture.  Move items into self-storage so you can open up the areas you wish to refinish and  repaint.  This will also make completing your project easier and faster.

At Riel Park RV & Self Storage we commit to providing a safe and secure place for your stuff.   We have a wide range of storage solutions to meet your needs from seasonal storage, personal storage and household storage
