Winter is Coming: Retrieve Your Cozy Coats from Self Storage

As fall comes to an end, it is time to start thinking about the colder months ahead. While we may not get much snow here in the south, we do experience below freezing temperatures during the winter season. It’s essential to stay warm during this time, and one way to do that is to dig out your winter coats from self storage. In this blog post, we’ll discuss why it’s important to get your winter coats ready and how to properly store them when not in use.

Winter coats can take up valuable space in your closet during the warmer months. To avoid clutter, many people opt to store their heavier coats in a self storage unit. If you’re one of those people, now is the time to retrieve them. Procrastinating is never an option because you don’t want to be caught in the winter months without a coat. Besides, it’s better to be prepared ahead of time rather than dealing with the cold without proper attire.

Before bringing your winter coats back into your home, it’s necessary to check for any damage or wear and tear such as ripped sleeves, broken zippers, or loose buttons from the prior winter. If there are any damages, it’s best to get them fixed before wear.

Clean them before tucking them away in your closet, as they may have accumulated dust in self storage. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions in terms of cleaning and storage to make sure that your coat stays in good condition.

When storing your winter coat, it’s important to keep it away from moisture and heat. Moisture can cause mold, and heat can damage the insulation material. Keep the coat hung on a sturdy hanger in a cool, dry place or fold it and place into a vacuum sealed garment bag. Don’t forget to close the coat zippers or buttons to keep them well-maintained.

With winter fast approaching, it’s essential to start preparing your winter gear, including bringing out your winter coats from self storage. By taking the necessary steps to store them properly, you can keep them in excellent condition year after year, keeping you warm when needed while avoiding adding unnecessary wear and tear. It’s important to take care of your clothes so that they’re ready to serve you right. So go ahead and get that winter coat out of storage, clean it, check it over, and remember to store it properly. Stay warm and comfy all winter long.
