How to Store your Couch

Depending on your current life situation, you may find yourself with additional furniture that you just don’t seem to have the room for anymore. Instead of tossing it out consider placing your beloved furniture in a storage unit at Elite Storage in Lafayette. If you are planning on placing your couch in storage we have provided you with some preparation steps you should take before dropping it off in our secure facility.


Before placing anything in storage you will want to make sure it is cleaned thoroughly. Dust, food, and grime can potentially cause damage to your couch when it is sitting in your storage unit over time. Depending on the fabric of your couch you will have to use different cleaning solvents to make sure the fabric itself is clean. You can easily determine which cleaning product to use with a little internet research. After your couch has been cleaned and vacuumed make sure it is dry before leaving it in storage.The Storage Unit

Before renting a storage unit for your couch you will want to make sure you have the appropriate size to fit everything you need to place within the unit. A couch can take up a lot of space within the unit so you will want to plan ahead. Elite Storage in Lafayette can provide you with a variety of sizes when it comes to storage units.


While your couch is in storage you will want to protect it from gathering any dust or dirt on its surface. Using a heavy sheet or blanket can easily protect your couch for its stay. For additional protection you can place the couch on pallets or a tarp to keep it away from any hazardous spills that may occur.

Temperature Controlled Storage
