Tips, Tricks and Ideas

Storing your larger furniture pieces such as desks, beds, tables, cupboards, cabinets and sofas can be a hassle, however taking care of your furniture before storing will make moving it from storage to your home that much easier.

When the time comes to actually move your furniture, make sure that the larger furniture pieces are taken apart if they’re able. Just remember to keep the screws and other fasteners either in their own little bags or taped onto their designated furniture pieces so that they don’t get lost. Additionally, blankets, sheets or plastic covers are very useful in preventing the settlement of dust onto your newly cleaned furniture as well as preventing them from scraping on sharp or textured surfaces such as concrete or brick walls. It is highly advised that you don’t use plastic coverings for more long-term storage, due to the high risk of mould and bacteria growing on your furniture from the contained humidity and trapped moisture in the air.

Fabric Furniture

For fabric sofas and mattresses, it’s important to vacuum up all the dust and dirt that has built up over the years. You can even use baking powder to sprinkle over the surface before vacuuming it for that touch of extra cleanliness.

Wooden Furniture

For wooden surfaces such as desks, shelves and cabinets, all that will be needed is a slightly damp cloth to wipe all the dust off the surface. If you really want that surface to shine, you can use a polish or wax with a cloth to really bring some life to the wood.

Leather Furniture

Leather items need a little extra attention before being put into storage. It might be a good idea to get your leather sofa or any leather furniture professionally cleaned. Also, make sure that the surfaces are completely dry before storing it, in order to prevent mould from growing around and inside the item. Thick plastic sheets on the ground will prevent mould from growing from below, and sheets such as cotton and flannel are acceptable to wrap your leather in, in order to combat dust and mould from settling as well as allowing for the material to breathe. Don’t store anything on top of your leather sofa, as this will create indents in the material and potentially damage the item permanently.

Antique Furniture

Antique furniture and items need a little extra care when storing. Mirrors and paintings with older frames can be protected with cardboard corners. Wrapping them in bubble wrap just adds another layer of protection to your items and prevents damage and dust. Leather furniture should be conditioned with special leather conditioner before being stored away in order to preserve the shine and condition of the material until you take it out of storage.

Mattress Storage

On the off chance that you have an extra mattress that you need to store, storing it horizontally is best. If there is not enough space, make sure that it is rotated every 2 weeks in order to ensure that the springs within the mattress don’t change shape or position. Sofas should be stored off the ground so that in the event of a flood or dirt coming into the storage space, your sofa will be elevated and protected from the potential damage. You can do this by using pallets or sheets and tarps on the floor that will prevent any major damage from occurring.
