5 Tips for Storing Lawn Equipment for the Season: Advice from Ocala Storage Park in Ocala, Florida

As the season comes to a close, it's time to think about storing your lawn equipment until next year. But how can you ensure that your equipment stays safe and in good condition? At Citrus Park Office & Storage in Ocala, Florida, we have years of experience helping customers safely store their belongings, including lawn equipment.
Here are 5 tips to help you store your lawn equipment for the season:
  • Clean your equipment thoroughly. Before storing your lawn equipment, make sure to remove any dirt, grass clippings, or debris that has accumulated on it. This will help prevent rust and other damage.
  • Empty the gas tank. Gasoline can deteriorate over time, which can cause damage to your equipment's engine. Make sure to empty the gas tank before storing your equipment.
  • Store your equipment in a dry, cool place. Moisture can cause rust and other damage, so it's important to store your lawn equipment in a dry, cool place.
  • Protect your blades. If you're storing lawn equipment with blades, make sure to protect them from damage. You can use a blade cover or simply wrap them in a towel.
  • Maintain your equipment. Even though you won't be using your equipment for a while, it's important to maintain it during storage. This includes periodically checking it for any signs of damage or rust, and making sure to recharge the battery if applicable.
While storing lawn equipment is generally safe, there are some restrictions to keep in mind. For example, it is generally not safe to store equipment with a full gas tank, as gasoline can be flammable. Additionally, some types of lawn equipment may not be permitted to be stored in self storage, such as propane-powered equipment or equipment with hazardous materials.
