Top 4 Ways To Organize Your Basement

toronto storage basementBasements are most commonly used as Toronto storage space for everything from old books to seasonal items and everything in between. These items can really accumulate over time leaving you with quite the mess.

Here are the top four ways you can get your basement in tip top shape again:

Take a long look at the basement conditions

Basements are more likely to flood and get damp which means if you do not take care of your things they could get ruined. Things like wood and leather furniture would be better kept somewhere else such as a Valet Storage unit.

If you have many stored items in your basement consider getting some shelving to keep things off of the floor. This could save them in the event of flooding as well as make it easier for you to find what you are looking for when you need it.

Sort through your items

Most people have things stored that they are never going to need or even really want again. Go through everything you have with a fine toothed comb and sort things into categories such as keep, donate, sell, store, throw out and act accordingly. This will keep you from being overwhelmed by your stored items.

Don’t forget to label your bins

Using clear plastic bins that you can label will not only simplify the process but make it so much easier when you want to get something to use. If you have many boxes in your basement, the chances of you finding one small thing without labels are slim. Plus, this way, you don’t have to open box after box hunting for anything because you will be able to see and read exactly where it is.

Get a Toronto storage unit

A Toronto storage unit is by far the easiest way for you to declutter your basement. Choose a climate controlled unit and you will never have to worry about your belongings. They will be safe and secure from everything from flooding to thieves.
