  • Clean your appliance. You’ll want to thoroughly clean your appliance, taking care to remove all moisture content, which could cause mold and mildew growth. Don’t forget the often-neglected small appliance components, such as air intake areas like lint filters, grids, or tubes.
  • Prevent mildew and mold growth. In addition to cleaning your appliance of moisture, make sure you remove all water points such as hoses, air filters, and holding tanks as well to prevent mold and mildew growth.
  • Store appliances upright. Appliances should be stored upright to prevent damage, as well as toward the back and side walls of your storage unit. This is so they don’t inhibit access to your storage unit, but also so you can find them and access them easily if need be.
  • Tape shut. Always tape your appliances shut during transportation, and consider bubble wrap or blankets to prevent accidental scrapes, dents, or knocks during moving. Furthermore, leave your appliance taped shut as well during storage to prevent the doors or access points from swinging open, creating a perfect haven for bugs.
