How to keep your things safe from pests while in storage

Putting your belongings in storage can help you transition from one living situation to another. Even if this option makes your life easier in other ways, it can still be stressful. One of the main pitfalls of storage can be the damage that occurs from pests and other critters while your stuff is stored away.

Here are a few tips from your friends at Hug Condon on how to keep your belongings safe and sound. And remember, we provide state-of-the-art storage options that include temperature-controlled units that help to keep pests and other unwanted critters away from your stuff!

• Keep your things in hard-sided storage bins - cardboard boxes may be the easiest option, but unfortunately, they leave much to be desired when it comes to keeping pests away! It's worth the investment to purchase some plastic bins that are tightly sealed and provide a barrier between your stuff and creepy crawlies.

• Be sure to pack only clean items. Food debris will attract pests like nobodies business! Take a close look at your things, especially clothes, before placing them in storage containers. Don't give pests a reason to make their home in your things.

• Upgrade to a temperature-controlled storage facility. We all know how humid it can get in NOLA, and who loves dark, damp areas more than bugs and pests? Humidity alone can wreak havoc on your belongings, and when pests are added to the mix, well, we don't even want to think about it!
