How to do Spring Cleaning the Right Way at UCF

It’s that time of year again to find all the cleaning supplies you have and deep clean the dorm or apartment. Whip out your dusters and toilet wands, it’s time to get down to business. Even college students can partake in spring cleaning!

Don’t even know where to start? Try using a printable checklist from our Pinterest to keep track of the chores.

Get your roommates involved, too! Spread the chores among your roommates to even out the workload and make the process less stressful. You can even make spring cleaning a game by creating a point system for the chores. Whoever has the most points when all the tasks are done wins and gets an extra scoop of ice cream for dessert at one of the local Orlando ice cream shops!

Storing all of your belongings in a small space can be a hassle – especially those UCF dorms. There’s nowhere to put everything, right? Wrong! There are many creative places to store items and ways to use all your space to its fullest.

When living in a small space or dorm, it is necessary to edit down your amount of items. There is no need to have seven pairs of scissors when you are living in a one bedroom apartment. Think about your necessities. The items you just can’t part with but have no room for can go into one of our spacious storage units! We can hold onto them for you until you need them again.

Use every drawer properly and completely. Organize it with dividers to maximize its use.

If you are in dire need of an extra room for an office, turn your closet into one! Clear out the winter clothes and put in a desk and shelves. Add a curtain so when company is over you can hide your secret, or leave it open and show off your space saving idea!

How to Store Your Holiday Decorations at UCF

We are back in school and are already a week into 2013. It might be a good time to take down all those holiday decorations before your UCF neighbors start to complain! Really organize your decorations this year so next holiday season will be even easier.

Most items, especially those holiday sweaters, will fit into boxes. For decorations, the boxes should be padded so the items do not break. Use wrapping paper or bubble wrap to protect them. Keep the smaller, delicate items on top to keep them from getting crushed by larger items. Label each box so retrieving the decorations you want to use next year will be easier. Make sure to label the fragile boxes to ensure careful handling.

Not only do families in the UCF area, as well as students use extra space for storing holiday items, but so do businesses! Offices may have that cluttered back corner or closet filled with decorations. Storage units in the UCF area are a great, affordable option for seasonal storage.
