Benefits Storo

Cleaning out your attic? Where to start?

  • Is your attic overcrowded?
  • Do you want to turn your attic into an extra room, hobby room or dressing?
  • Are you a collector and is your attic overflowing with all your collections?
  • Have you just moved and is your attic full of moving boxes

What do you do with all that stuff? How do you get them back organized? And where do you keep those things that you really don't want to lose, but don't have room for?

We give you 7 effective cleaning tips for your attic.

 1. Clear out your attic in bits and pieces

Clearing an attic that is overcrowded is not something you can do in one day. And if you want to do it in one day, you won't succeed. Or you are so demotivated that you give up after that day. Chop the cleanup into bits and pieces and set aside a few hours each time. No more. And reward yourself afterwards with an activity you enjoy. Calling your girlfriend, a walk in nature, an afternoon of shopping, ...

 

2. Work with 3 handy boxes

How difficult it is to choose! What do you like and what not? Work with 3 handy storage boxes. In one box you put things you want to get rid of, in the second box everything you want to keep. And keep the 3rd box for the doubtful cases.

Are you done cleaning out your attic? Close the box with doubts. Have you not taken anything out or missed anything after 3 months? Then you're done with it and the box can go! Are your things too big to put in boxes? Then work with 3 zones.

 

3. Don't put your moving stuff in the attic!

Are you moving or have you just moved? And is your attic full of moving boxes? Not handy because you really want to use your attic really usefully and reserve it for those things that you really want to keep. That is why it is much more convenient to store your things elsewhere for the time being. At Storo you can rent an extra storage space for the short term. That way, your stuff won't get in the way when you're busy decorating your attic.

4. Reserve your attic for things you don't use every day

Your attic: you (normally) don't sit in it every day. Use your attic for things that you do not need every day. Just think of seasonal items:

  • Ski equipment
  • Christmas stuff
  • Garden furniture
  • Above ground pool
  • Beach umbrella


You can't just throw those things away right away, but they often take up all the space. And that can be very annoying, especially if you want to turn your attic into an extra bedroom, office or hobby room.

Have you thought about renting a storage space for your seasonal items? In the winter, you bring your summer gear to Storo and pick up your winter gear to use back at home. This way you always keep an overview in your attic. Calculate here how much storage space you need.

 

5. Store pieces that don't belong to you in your self-storage

Sometimes things end up in your attic that are not 'really' yours:

  • the furniture of your parents who have just moved to a rest home
  • pieces from an inheritance
  • the stuff of your association, hobby club, sports club,…


That can seriously annoy you. You can't find your own stuff anymore and you've had it with someone else's stuff. Yet it is impossible or inappropriate to throw those things away. As a temporary solution, you can place these things with Storo, your handy self-storage.

 

6. Find extra storage space for your out-of-control collection in the attic

Are you an avid collector and don't you just want to get rid of your beautiful collection? We understand that all too well. Especially if your collection is worth quite a bit, you don't want to get rid of it just like that. Even then, extra storage space outdoors can offer solace

 

7. Make a sequel: clear your attic every year!

Now that you have cleaned up and your attic is completely tidy again, you are of course very happy. Rightly so! But bet that in the course of the next year you put things in your attic that you no longer need immediately? That is why it is a good idea to take care of your attic every year – at a fixed time, for example during the Christmas period or in the spring.

Still not enough space to store all your things neatly? Calculate with our handy space calculator how much extra space you need and bring your things quickly and easily to Storo, your self-storage on the go!
