Reclaim Your Life Through Storage
Renovations can take time and are often rife with delays. Although you may be ready to weather a small house for a few weeks, these things have a way of stretching on for months. It’s called the “while you’re already in there, you might as well …” syndrome. As such, your house can become difficult to live in and the added stress on you and/or your spouse can be a recipe for disaster.

Keep Your Couch Dust-Free
Assuming that you can handle the mess, and you’re confident that it won’t end your marriage, you may decide to be frugal and cover your furniture rather than move it to a storage facility. Unfortunately construction dust becomes a factor. When you are deciding if you should store or cover your furniture and belongings, make sure to compare the cost of cleaning or replacing your furniture against the cost for storage. A well-maintained and climate controlled storage facility has an extremely high probability of keeping your furniture in the same condition as you left it, even for an extended period of time. When you renovate you face the risk of accidental damage to your furniture, art and antiques. Apart from accidental damage, the dust generated from the construction is very harmful to your furniture, particularly drywall dust. Drywall dust is so fine, it finds its way into tiny cracks and crevices that sometimes cannot be cleaned, and because of its makeup, the cleaning agents used to remove it can damage the very thing you are trying to clean! Your best bet is to store your furniture and personal items at a reputable, clean and well-maintained storage facility. Jiffy invites you to come and inspect our facility. We are proud of our upkeep and of our stellar record of zero complaints with the Better Business Bureau. At Jiffy we take better care of your things because we care about your things.
