October 15th, 2018

Whether you are moving or have accumulated one too many couches you will need to know what to do in order to store your couch properly at US 60 Self Storage in Mesa, AZ. There are certain preparations you will need to make in order to make sure the quality of your couch stays intact during its stay in storage. Check out the steps listed below to help you in prepping your couch for storage.

Deep Clean your Couch

Before placing anything in storage you will want to make sure it is cleaned thoroughly. Dust, food, and grime can potentially cause damage to your couch when it is sitting in your storage unit over time. Depending on the fabric of your couch you will have to use different cleaning solvents to make sure the fabric itself is clean. You can easily determine which cleaning product to use with a little internet research. After your couch has been cleaned and vacuumed make sure it is dry before leaving it in storage.

The Storage Unit

Before renting a storage unit for your couch you will want to make sure you have the appropriate size to fit everything you need to place within the unit. A couch can take up a lot of space within the unit so you will want to plan ahead. US 60 Self Storage in Mesa, AZ can provide you with a variety of sizes when it comes to storage units.


While your couch is in storage you will want to protect it from gathering any dust or dirt on its surface. Using a heavy sheet or blanket can easily protect your couch for its stay. For additional protection you can place the couch on pallets or a tarp to keep it away from any hazardous spills that may occur. Avoid using plastic covers. These tend to build up moisture and could cause mold or mildew.
