Reasons To Use Self-Storage When Renovating

Sep 9, 2021


A storage unit is the best tool for renovating any home. While it’s always exciting to think about the result, precautions should be taken. Belongings and precious family heirlooms should be protected during these processes, which can get messy. 


This blog is going to outline the benefits of using self-storage during renovation and house altering. 


Dust Protection 


A process like renovation is bound to cause plentiful amounts of dust. After the job is done, a clean up is likely, but precious items could avoid the risk altogether. Aside from dust - liquids and grease are also typical side-products of renovation that can impact the quality of your belongings. Don’t let these risks affect your home improvements. 


Hiring a self-storage unit can allow you to protect your items without running the risk of dust damage. Moreover, expensive items like electronic devices are prone to getting dust damage. Things such as these will cost much more to repair than the price of a simple storage solution.  


Increase Work Space


Looking into a self-storage solution will assist in killing two birds with one stone. First, while you can also protect your belongings from dust, you will give the renovation team enough room to carry out their work. Second, increase the levels of protection of your items by decreasing the presence of furniture and other homely items. 


With a job completed in less time and with more outstanding quality achieved, you and the renovation team will have greatly appreciated the organisation. 


Protection From Breaking


Any job that relies on renovation or construction is bound to come across damages from time to time. Reduce the risk of potential breaks or cracks to your property by keeping items in a self-storage unit. Additionally, damage or tainting is more likely to impact your belongings if the job involves paintwork. 


Any grazing or scraping by nearby ladders, tools or team members could be enough to ruin furniture. SafeGuard Storage, for example, offers a wide variety of storage units throughout the North Island region. So whether you’re looking to shelter a few chairs or your entire living room and kitchen - we have you covered. 


Carry Out That Big Clean You’ve Always Wanted


Sometimes certain events make for great excuses for a thorough cleaning. Home renovations are the perfect example; take this time to clean the home the way you’ve always wanted. Using the common pile categories, you’ll find it so much easier to figure out what to do with each item.


These categories include: 

  • Keep
  • Donate/throw away
  • Self-storage facility

With these three simple groups, you’ll take your cluttered living spaces and turn them into an ideal oasis. 


Save Money In The Long Run


Each of the above benefits will undoubtedly save you more money. A self-storage unit will protect items that are both expensive and priceless. During any renovation, the risk of breaking or damaging anything is still not impossible. 


The cost of replacing anything of value is going to hurt the wallet. However, having a self-storage unit will decrease the chances of damage to near none. With any process that involves construction or demolition, it’s better to be safe than sorry. So don’t delay in looking into a storage unit that can ultimately ensure your house/property is renovated without any risks.
