Cleaning Out the Basement

Cleaning out the basement can be a task that many put off for as long as they can, but the time usually comes when you can’t ignore the lowest level of your home any longer. At EZ Storage®, our self-storage units in Philadelphia are ideal for storing those boxes and tubs that have been cluttering up your basement for several years. No matter how much you need to store, we can help you find the right storage space.

Mementos and Memorabilia

dreamstime_4271677Two things that are often stashed in boxes in the basement are mementos and memorabilia. You have photo albums, sports trophies, and other keepsakes that you want to hold on to, but you only get them out when family comes to visit or someone graduates from high school or college. Putting some of those items into storage can clear up space in the basement for a new bedroom or rec room.

If you’re a collector of memorabilia, such as movie souvenirs or sports cards, then you want to make sure that everything is protected at all times. Basements can be at risk for flood damage, and the last thing you want is for a priceless baseball card to be ruined. A safety deposit box is a good choice for one rare piece of memorabilia, but if you have several boxes to store, then a self-storage unit is perhaps a better choice.

Storing Furniture

The basement can also be a collection spot for old or excess furniture that you no longer use, but aren’t quite ready to get rid of or donate. You might store the baby crib down there, holding on to it until the next little one is born. You might take an old couch downstairs after you buy a new one, and your teenage son asks you to keep it so that he can take it to college with him. Whatever the case may be, extra furniture can quickly take up a lot of space, and if you’re tired or rearranging things in the basement to make room for more, let our storage staff help you find the ideal space.

Create the Basement You Want

dreamstime_xxl_13274512Basements can be great for storage, but as your family grows and your interests change, you may want to remodel the lower floor so that you have an extra bedroom for guests or a home theater that you can use whenever you want. Creating the quintessential basement often starts with moving the clutter out of the way, and putting things in storage can keep them safe while also providing more space for whatever plans you may have.
