Common Problems with Garment Storage

steel garment racksWhether you’re looking to store hanging or folded clothing, garment storage can present universal problems during use in commercial spaces. Being able to identify and resolve an issue could mean the difference between income growth and loss. So, take time to read through a few and what you should do to fix them.

Once vibrant garments can begin to fade or look discolored if you over or misuse ordinary laundry liquid staples such as bleach, fabric softener, detergents and more. Understanding what cleansers work best to remove stains can help you avoid doing irreversible damage to textiles. While some could allow you to rewash damaged garments, others do not. Any success you have during removal depends on how old the discoloration is and past storage conditions.

If holes or fabric damage exists, you could have an insect, rodent, or mildew problem. To eliminate mice or moth damage, first vacuum and launder garments according to the care label. Then, spend some time inspecting the storage area to locate critters as well as potential points of entry. Clean and repair the space, taking precautions to keep mice from re-entering in the future or have an exterminator treat the area with proper insecticides.

What should you do if mildew has set in? Rewash clothes that have unpleasant odors with fabric safe detergent or bleach. Give storage areas and items time to dry before putting everything back. To prevent mold and odor growth in the future, air out the storage area.

Safe Garment Storage Methods

Proper ways to store hanging and folded clothes can vary but are simple enough to do if you want to prolong their lifespan and spend time and money on maintenance. Some dos include:

  • Suspend everything from athletic uniform jerseys and pants to retail prom gowns or museum costume collections from suitable hangers. Since not all hangers provide the same degree of support, choose one that fits the clothing style and weight.
  • Place dress slacks or pants on a hanger’s horizontal bar that has a padded or enlarged and rounded look to prevent creases at the thigh.
  • If hanging ready-to-wear dresses and skirts, use tape-made loops found at the waistline.  They help distribute clothing weight and minimize damage.
  • Leave enough space between clothes to ensure clean air circulation, easier access, fewer wrinkles, and damage.
  • If you must store anything in boxes, roll it first rather than folding it. You should line the area with acid-free tissue paper to allow easier handling in the future. Always support the item inside the fold forming a “C” to prevent creasing.
  • Keep fragile textiles in specialized bags with easy-to-secure zippers that help keep dust, moisture, and pests out.
  • Avoid hooks which have limited use.

Sliding Mobile Garment Racks Retail Backroom Compact Storage

Compact Garment Storage Racks

sliding mobile garment racksCustomers often ask employees to check for out-of-stock items in “the back.” Unfortunately, many retail backrooms are cluttered, disorganized, and difficult to navigate. But with limited amounts of space, retailers don’t have many options when it comes to storage. Sliding mobile garment racks are an easy way to instantly increase storage space with one simple solution.

What takes up the most space in your backroom? You might have already noticed that the aisles between rows of shelving and racks take up a significant amount of space. Additionally, employees don’t need to access all aisles at the same time. For the most part, no one is using a great majority of the shelves at any point.

By mounting wire shelving on floor tracks, the sliding mobile garment racks eliminate the need for this extra space. When not in use, the racks remain compacted together in a small footprint. Employees simply slide the shelves across the floor tracks and open an aisle where it’s needed. This means that there is no extra space wasted, and employees can still access the storage area easily. And if you decide to expand the system at a later date, it’s easy to add additional shelving units. The sliding storage racks are great for retail backrooms, lab coats, costume storage, choir robes, uniforms, and much more.
