Keeping Your Belongings Protected

  • Place belongings on plastic or pallets to raise items from the floor
  • Leave air space around the perimeter of items to aid ventilation
  • Use mattress and furniture dust covers/bags
  • Leave a walkway to the rear of your unit for easy access
  • Make an inventory and/or take pictures of your stored items
  • Confirm and/or PURCHASE INSURANCE for your stored belongings
  • Tuck fabric softener strips around items such as sofas,etc. It is a natural rodent deterrent.
  • Use an open bag of charcoal (plain charcoal, NOT infused with a lighter aid) as a natural dehumidifier
  • Do NOT use deterrents that actually ATTRACT pests or rodents - you will only be inviting them into everyone's unit
