Storage unitsMoving is always a hassle. There are moving companies in Utah that can help you with the work. More often than not, these movers also offer storage services. To make the most out of the space that you have here is a simple list to help you.

Storage tips and tricks

1. List and labels

Your things will be stored (and stacked). Knowing which boxes contain which items would come in handy should you need to take out these things at one point. Label the boxes and keep a list of the things your boxes contain. This will serve as your inventory list as well as your guide.

2. Wrap them well

Wrap your things well. Use an industrial plastic wrap to prevent water, dust and other particles from entering. Remember, you would put your things in these storage facilities for some time, best keep them clean and secure.

3. Keep them in boxes

Storing them in boxes is one of the best ways to maximize space. Always fill your boxes up. Keep the light ones in a bigger box and use them as a base and put heavier ones in small boxes for easier stacking.

4. Pallets

Pallets protect your storage units from water and ice seeping in and reaching your things. Keeping your things elevated off the floor protects them from the changes in the season as well as other events like leaks and flooding.

5. Protect inside out

Use quality locks to ensure your belongings are protected. While the place is likely under surveillance, it will not hurt to be careful. Protect your belongings on the inside with the help of wraps, proper positioning, and ventilation. Changing seasons outside can contribute to how your things and appliances cope (and age) on the inside.

6. Maps

Navigate your way through easily by having a map of your storage area. This will make it easier for you to locate things that you would need to take in the future.

Moving, packing, and storing is never an easy experience, but with practical tips and tricks, it won’t be as stressful as it seems to be.

Reducing Water ConsumptionWater is a basic necessity that we consume every day, especially at home where we drink, take a bath, and accomplish chores. Because of this, it isn’t impossible to overlook the instances that lead to excessive use of water. Avoid expensive water bills by following these tips.          

Always Check Pipes for Leaks

Pipe leakage results to sky-high bills without you even knowing it. A small drip can waste approximately 20 gallons per day, while larger leaks can waste hundreds of gallons. Whether you go DIY or hire a professional plumber, what’s important is that you seal that leak as soon as possible.

Store Water in a Tank or Bucket

Storing water in a bucket or say an aboveground storage tank prevents you from wasting running water. This technique is ideal when watering plants, cleaning the car, showering the driveway or whatever chore that requires you to use H20.  

Use Dishwashers and Washing Machines Efficiently

Using a dishwasher or washing machine half-loaded results to gallons and gallons of wasted water. Don’t forget about powdered soap and liquid detergent, too! In addition, running these appliances on full load saves you time.

Plant Drought-Resistant Shrubs and Plants

We know that plants are lovely but watering them every day will cost you. However, if you’d still like to keep your garden then opt for drought-resistant shrubs and plants. Native plants and cacti need less water even on a hot day. You can also group plants according to their watering needs to extend your conservation efforts.

Upgrade Your Toilets

Older toilets use a lot of water. If you have an outdated flusher, it is advisable to upgrade it immediately. Sure it may cost you now but imagine the savings it can provide you in the years to come. You can also flush less by sinking a small jug of water in the toilet tank.

Water conservation is an effort that primarily concerns homes as they are the main consumers. Save water and stop putting a hole in your pocket.
