Keeping Your Stored Sofa Looking Like New

Sofas are common items in self-storage units, but keeping them in good condition takes a little bit of preparation. If you plan to put a sofa into storage, follow these tips to ensure it stays looking like new until you’re ready to use it again.

Clean Before Storing

It’s always a good idea to clean your sofa before putting it into storage, even if you don’t see any signs of stains or dirt. Sofas take a lot of abuse, so putting it away without cleaning means you’ll be locking in sweat, germs, and odors. The right method of cleaning your sofa depends on its upholstery materials. Generally, synthetic fabrics can be cleaned with water, while natural fabrics require a solvent-based cleaner. Leather sofas can be cleaned with a few drops of olive oil massaged into the leather using a microfiber cloth. Ensure your sofa is thoroughly dried before moving it to your storage unit.

Choose Climate-Controlled Storage

Climate-controlled storage facilities will reduce the impact of temperature extremes, moisture, and humidity on the wood and upholstery of your sofa. Although climate-controlled units often cost a bit more, they are worth the extra money to protect your investment in your sofa. Be sure to select a unit of adequate size to accommodate your sofa and any protective padding you want to put around it—you shouldn’t have to push the sofa against a wall or the door.

Store the Sofa Off the Ground

One of the easiest and most effective ways you can protect your sofa in storage is to put it on pallets to keep it off the ground. This will protect your furniture piece from dirt and moisture. It will also help air circulate freely around your sofa. Cover the sofa with drop cloths or padded cloths, but avoid plastic, which traps air and moisture and encourages mold growth.

Storing Your RV? Don't Forget the Fuel Stabilizer

When not in use, putting your RV in vehicle storage at a storage facility will allow you to protect your vehicle without taking up space in your driveway. To ensure that your RV is ready to use the next time you want to hit the open road, there are a few steps you need to take to prepare it for downtime. One critical step is to add fuel stabilizer before putting the vehicle in RV storage.

The longer gas or diesel sits in an unused vehicle, the more it begins to degrade. Gas can degrade and cause problems with corrosion, while diesel can grow microbes known as diesel algae. Fuel stabilizer prevents this from happening, so you can pull your vehicle out of RV storage and get moving right away, without any concerns about engine problems from fuel degradation.
