If you’re moving into a new apartment in NYC, that big comfy sectional
you love might not be making the trip with you—but that doesn’t
mean you have to get rid of it. Just because a couch won’t fit your
space now doesn’t mean you won’t have room for it in the future.
By keeping your couch in a
self-storage unit in Manhattan
, you can free up space in your home or apartment and keep your prized
piece of furniture safe until you need it. Here are some tips for getting
your sofa read for long-term storage in NYC.
Clean the Sofa
Start by giving your sofa a
deep cleaning. If you have an upholstered couch, go over the fabric with a vacuum cleaner
hose or portable steam cleaner. You want to remove as much dirt and dust
from the sofa as possible so it comes out looking and smelling like new.
Remove Detachable Legs
If your sofa has detachable legs, flip the couch on its back and remove
the legs from the bottom of the couch. Give the legs a thorough cleaning
and place them inside a large resealable bag or small moving box. Taking
the legs off will also help you maneuver the sofa out of your old apartment
and into your new storage unit.
Wrap Couch and Pillows
The last step is to place cushions and throw pillows in bags or wrap them
individually with newspaper and plastic wrap. Place your sofa in a plastic
sofa bag (available from your self-storage facility) to keep your couch
looking, smelling, and feeling like new while in storage.
