your options in safes for your family

Do you have somewhere in your home to keep your valuables and important documents safe? If not, now is the time to look into getting a safe. I never thought that I needed to have a safe in my home, but since we had a fairly serious fire, my opinion has changed. Unfortunately, the fire had damaged the part of my home that I store all of my important paperwork. This caused me a great deal of work that I really didn't have the time to do since I was working to repair the damage to my home. Since that time, I have had two fireproof safes installed in my home and you would never even know that they are there. Learn about the different options in safes that you have to decide what would be best for your family.

How To Clean Your Musty Safe This Spring

As you check items off your spring checklist, make sure that cleaning your safe is on that list, especially if it has a musty odor to it. 

Get Rid Of The Moisture

The first thing you need to do is address why your safe smells musty. Your safe smells musty because moisture is somehow able to make its way into your safe. Before you address the smell, you need to remove the moisture from your safe. 

Start by checking your safe and see if you can determine where the moisture is making its way into your safe. If you find that an area of your safe is damaged, have your safe provider fix it for you.

If you can't find where the moisture is getting into your safe at, you need to focus on absorbing the moisture up that is inside of your safe right now. 

You are going to need to purchase either desiccant or silica gel from a craft store. Both of these products are designed to absorb excess moisture. Make sure that the container you purchase has enough in it for the size of your safe. There should be a chart on the container that shows what size space the contents will be effective in. 

After your purchase the desiccant or silica gel, spread it out across the bottom of your safe and shut your safe for a few days. It should absorb all the moisture in your safe. You can then remove it from your safe when you are done; however, you may want to put a small container containing either silica gel or desiccant in your safe so that it can continue to absorb any moisture that gets into your safe.

Get Rid Of The Smell

The second thing you need to do once you take care of the moisture problem is address the smell problem inside of your safe. 

To get rid of the smell, you are going to need to save your coffee grounds for a few days. If you don't drink coffee, see if a friend will save some coffee grounds for you. 

Take the coffee grounds and put them inside of a bowl. Then put that bowl inside of your safe. Leave it there for a few days. After a few days, the smell should be gone. You can now remove the coffee grounds. If the smell ever comes back, you can repeat this process or you can just leave a small container of coffee grounds inside of your safe to ensure that it always smells great.
