Storing Things in Your Attic in Extreme Temperatures
Your attic is a great spot for storage, except during hot, humid summers and cold and wet winters. In our region of the American South, dedicated climate-controlled storage is often the better option than storing stuff at home.
At Hug Condon, we are proud to provide our customers with climate-controlled storage options because we believe it's the best option because of our climate. Items that are commonly stored in attics, such as clothing and memorabilia, can be damaged and even ruined during our frequent times of extreme weather.
3 Reasons Why Climate-Controlled Storage is Your Best Option
- High Humidity - heat and humidity can cause items to expand and contract. This can be especially damaging to wood furniture. High temps during periods of high humidity can also cause mold and mildew; two occurrences can ruin clothes and other soft articles.
- Insects and Critters - as secure as your attic may be, it can still become a haven for unwanted critters and insects. Squirrels, chipmunks, and mice can cause a number of different types of damage, most of which will cause your items to be completely ruined.
- Leaks and Water Damage - attics are prime locations for leaks and other water damage. Unfortunately, water can cause a lot of damage, and destroy any items that are in its path.
Because of these reasons and more, it's time to re-think your storage options! Using your attic for storage may leave you with a lot of damaged or destroyed items. Why not rest easy knowing that your belongings are safe and secure?
