Our storage units can help you remove the clutter and save space!
Pests in your storage unit are a guaranteed source of headaches, particularly if you bring them in. Because they can cause a lot of damage to the items you’ve put away, you need to watch for them year round and especially when they’re most active in summer.
Here are some ways you can fight back:
1. Sweep up
The best way to prevent infestations is to keep your unit as clean as possible. Keep a broom and dustpan in your storage area and try to sweep up every few weeks. Be sure to also pick up any stray pieces of trash you may see around your unit.
2. Moth Balls
Lone Star has no problems with roaches or other insects. We strongly suggest that clients leave moth balls around their storage unit to kill any insects that are brought in. It is an excellent precaution.
3. Use common sense
Don’t store food in your unit and don’t keep a trashcan inside it. You could end up attracting unwanted guests including mice. Once inside a storage unit, these pests can chew through boxes and furniture.
Lone Star Self-Storage takes precautions against rodents. On a monthly basis, inspections are done and bait is maintained to control possible rodent problems.
Lone Star offers easy-access units in six different sizes that are clean and safe. And our contracts are month-to-month, which means no long-term contracts and no fuss. Don’t let those extra items you can’t keep in your home or office “bug” you. Contact us today and let us show you the easy way to store your belongings!
