If you are moving, have a growing collection that is taking over your home, or need to make room for a new family member, consider renting a storage unit. Before choosing a space that is affordable and within a reasonable distance from your home, you should learn about your storage options. For example, some storage facilities offer units with secured climate conditions.
A secured climate unit may come with a humidifier, dehumidifier, heater, and/or an air-conditioner.
Here are a few items that greatly benefit from being in a secured climate space.
Leather and Wooden Furniture
When there is too much moisture, wood can rot and warp. Furthermore, wood can expand, contract, and ultimately crack if the temperature in the storage space changes dramatically. Similarly, leather is sensitive to temperature changes. Sensitive leather is also susceptible to moisture and can discolor if not properly stored.
If you are in the middle of a move, you probably have a number of appliances that need storage, such as a dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, washer, and dryer. These are all electronic devices with mechanical parts that require secured climate storage. Without it, parts of the units may get mold and mildew or they may crack and rust.
Wines can prematurely age in heat or not age at all in the cold. They can also spoil and lose aroma and flavor when not properly stored. In general, fine wine will not age properly unless it is in ideal storage conditions.
There are many types of collections that require proper storage. You must get a secured climate storage space if you have coins, stamps, comics, or musical instruments. These types of belongings are wonderful to collect, but they are vulnerable to the elements. Spaces with the right conditions are integral to the preservation of your collections.
