Self-Storage Tips of Storing Christmas Decorations
Take Down the Decorations from the Christmas Tree
To start, gently take off all ornaments and decorations from the Christmas tree. If the tree is not pre-lit, also remove the lights. Place all decorations and lights carefully into storage containers and boxes for the next year. If there's a Christmas tree skirt around the bottom, take it off and fold it up for storage.
Check for Lights That Are No Longer Working.
If the Christmas tree is pre-lit, it's crucial to inspect it for burned-out lights before storing it in our self-storage units. To check for burned-out lights, locate the bulb at the bottom of the tree nearest to the light plug and follow the line of lights visually to identify any non-working lights. If you discover lights that are not functioning, replace them with the spare bulbs.
Disassemble the Tree Into Sections.
Next, dismantle the Christmas tree with care. Depending on its size, it may consist of three to four sections, each plugged into the next one. Begin by removing the top piece, unplugging it from the middle section, and continue until all pieces are disassembled. If the tree stand is not attached, also remove it for storage.
Bend The Tree Branches Into Place.
To maximize storage efficiency, carefully bend the tree branches into position, taking care not to damage the bulbs in the process.
Store The Christmas Tree in a Storage Container.
For proper protection during storage, utilize an artificial Christmas tree storage bag. Avoid storing your Christmas tree in a box, as cardboard can deteriorate over time and fails to provide adequate protection for your tree.
