The demand for storage units is high. According to SpareFoot Storage Beat, there are 5.9 square feet of storage space per person available in the United States. Mobile storage containers are particularly useful if you're moving to a new home or working on a big cleaning or remodeling project. If you're preparing to rent one of these containers, one of the biggest questions on your mind may be how to effectively keep it clean. Read on for three tips to make this process easier.

1. Clean Items Before Storing Them

You'll want to quickly wipe your mobile storage container down with disinfectant before you start putting anything inside. However, no matter how clean the container is before you use it, it will quickly get dirty again if any of the items you put inside it are dusty or grimy. Be sure to research the proper cleaning methods for every item you're putting into storage. If even one item is dirty, it can contaminate everything else stored with it.

2. Wear Disposable Gloves

The last thing you want is for dirt and germs to get on your hands when you're cleaning your mobile storage container. A pack of disposable gloves is an inexpensive investment that offers immeasurable value. Of course, you should still be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after you finish cleaning.

3. Research the Most Effective Cleaning Products

When it comes to the cleaning products you use for your mobile storage container, it's important to keep in mind that not everything on the market is equal in quality. Be sure to do a bit of research into the products that will best meet your needs. The EPA has a recommended list of disinfectants that offer strong protection against COVID-19, which can be a great place to start on your search. Looking for products that contain ethanol, hydrogen peroxide, or quaternary ammonium is also a good rule of thumb.

With the right products and a little bit of elbow grease, keeping your mobile storage container and the items within clean should be a breeze. Now that you know more about the proper cleaning process, it's time to book your mobile storage rental. Contact COWs of Delaware today to get started. We look forward to assisting you!
