Storing furniture correctly
So, you’re moving house soon and need to empty your apartment, but can’t move into your new apartment immediately. Or perhaps you’re going abroad and want to sublet your apartment. Or you could be having renovations done and need to store your possessions somewhere temporarily. But where to put your beautiful designer furniture? Getting rid of everything would be such a shame, but the furniture can’t stay where it is either. You can always give away or donate used furniture, but there are some things you just cannot part with!
Outsourcing is the solution
Not in your friends’ cellar compartment, though: it’s the high humidity that makes it completely unsuitable for storing furniture correctly. Long-term exposure to dampness can destroy furniture: from brittle paint and discolouration to mould and insect infestation. The attic isn’t suitable for storing furniture either: significant temperature fluctuations and direct sun exposure result in tears and paintwork damage. We also recommend that furniture is not placed directly on the floor but on a shelf (e. g. on a pallet). This also ventilates the furniture from below to prevent the formation of mould.
If the furniture is to be stored for a long time, it should be cleaned and oiled beforehand. The oil layer provides additional protection against moisture and the wood is cared for. Particularly sensitive pieces such as cushions or sofas can also be covered with an air-permeable film or cloths, but not with a plastic film, because this leads to condensation.
Storebox – Your furniture storage next door
Our Storebox offers a perfect solution for storing your furniture properly and affordably. You can choose between 1-20m² compartments in our central locations.
