Climate Controlled Storage

Self-storage units in West Palm Beach can be a great solution to your moving woes or just a place to keep your extra furniture and belongings. While you might think that a state of the art alarm system is enough to protect your things, weather and moisture can actually be more of a risk than theft.

If you are planning on storing any of these five sensitive items, you should only rent a unit within a climate-controlled facility.

1. Leather and Wood Furniture

Leather should not be exposed to dramatic changes in temperature. When you consider how expensive many leather furniture items are, you’ll want to choose a temperature-controlled storage unit, which will control humidity levels to ensure your furniture is well-protected from the elements.

Furniture made out of wood should never be exposed to moisture or dampness for too long because it will begin to rot or crack apart, effectively ruining it beyond repair. If you plan on storing anything like tables and chairs, wardrobes, or desks, you should opt for a West Palm Beach climate controlled storage unit.

2. Electronics and Appliances

Large household appliances like washers and refrigerators don’t withstand extreme temperatures well and can quickly become defective. Moisture in the air can also lead to a buildup of mold and mildew, regardless of how well you clean them before they go into storage. It’s worth protecting these pricey household essentials by choosing a climate regulated storage facility.

Humidity and moisture are also dangerous for stowed away electronics of all sizes, but especially large TVs. If these electronics are going to be in storage for a long time, it should be somewhere that prevents moisture from penetrating the unit and keeps the temperature steady throughout the year.

3. Artwork

Artwork of all mediums should be kept in a climate-controlled unit to prevent molding or other damage. Due to the more sensitive nature of art, these pieces should be given an additional layer of protection such as a drawing tube or special cabinet. This will prevent excessive dust from landing on the artwork.

4. Documents, Comics, Books

Any paper product is susceptible to moisture damage. Other common additions to this list are stamps and photographs, which often have high monetary or sentimental value. When stored improperly, photographs are known to bleed into each other and become ruined. A good way to prevent this risk altogether is not to have photos directly touching each other.

If you are a business owner using a storage unit, you should also choose a climate-controlled unit. This will guarantee that sensitive and important documents are kept well-preserved.

5. Instruments

Instruments are known to be extremely sensitive to changes in weather and humidity and can be damaged or destroyed easily. If you aren’t careful, the actual shape of the instrument could warp, and the sound will become muddled.

When you store an instrument of any kind, it should only be in a climate-controlled unit.
