Once you buy a shipping container from the depot, it might be possible that it is contaminated, thanks to the wear and tear and other pollutants it might come in contact with while being transported. Even if it has been sitting idle, some amount of maintenance and repair work is required to ensure that it is in a usable condition.
Besides, rust can always make its way through despite taking precautions. Hence, it is necessary to clean it before using it again. While cleaning may appear to be a daunting task, these quick, handy tips will make your life easy!
If water does not work, you can fill vinegar in a spray bottle to clean the surface. For larger holes, you can consider welding a piece of steel across the hole or use an industry sealant to glue the piece across the hollow area.
Additionally, address any rust or corrosion issues to avoid it being converted into a concern later. An easy way to identify rust is to close the container and walk around across every side to determine if any daylight finds its way inside, other than through breather vents. These can be probable rust areas that can be easily brushed off using a wire brush and sandpaper. You may repaint the surface to restore the look.
