Why Climate Control Matters
Hug Condon believes in keeping your belongings safe, whether for short-term or long term storage. Depending on what you are storing and how long, determines whether or not climate-controlled storage is for you.
If you are storing art, antiques, or electronics, you may want to consider climate control storage to keep the items' integrity. Climate control storage can keep your items safe from extreme cold, heat, and humidity. There are three things you need to consider when thinking about how to store your items.
- What is your location?
- What kind of items are you storing?
- How long do you plan on storing them?
If you are in a location that experiences extreme heat, your items could begin to melt. Items such as vinyl records, CDs, DVDs, and wood furniture could expand and crack. A good rule of thumb is to use climate control if you live in an area that will reach over 90 degrees.
If you live in areas where there is extreme cold, your items will be at risk of freezing. If any of your items retain moisture, they could potentially contract and crack. It is important to use climate control storage if the weather gets below 32 degrees.
Living in locations that experience extreme humidity can plague your items with mold, mildew, and bacteria. Climate controlled storage will keep your belongings clean and dry. Don't ruin your items in high humidity storage units.
