When it comes to storage, it is better to be safe than sorry. Everyone who needs to store belongings should place them in spaces where the temperature can be controlled as desired. Winter Moving & Storage will keep your valuables and other belongings at the perfect temperature, ensuring their integrity or functionality is not compromised by a temperature that is either too high or too low.
Don’t Subject Your Belongings to Temperature Fluctuations
The last thing you want to do is subject your belongings to extreme heat or cold. Temperature fluctuations will ruin the majority of items placed in storage. However, some storage units are not temperature controlled. Rely on Winter Moving & Storage for your storage needs and you will rest easy knowing your valuables are well-protected.
Though some items can withstand temperature extremes while in storage, the majority of items will warp or fall apart in other ways. As an example, alterations in temperature are likely to damage items such as electronic equipment, musical instruments, pieces of art, mattresses, antique wood furnishings, books, magazines and important documents. Excessively low or high temperatures in storage spaces will cause the items listed above to fade, crack, warp and endure other forms of damage. The damage will be egregious if fluctuations in temperature are rapid.
Climate Controlled Storage is the Answer
Instead of allowing your belongings to be compromised by temperature extremes, it is better to put them in climate controlled storage spaces. This is your opportunity to place your belongings in a space that is exactly the right temperature to preserve the integrity of your items. Add in the fact that controlled climate storage spaces decrease exposure to pests and dust and you have even more reason to use them as opposed to a space where the temperature cannot be controlled.
After all, the last thing you want is for your items to be coated in dust when you take them out of storage. The lack of air circulation and abundance of dust in spaces lacking temperature control will prove to be a significant problem when storing clothing, carpets, mattresses, upholstered furniture and other items.
Protect Your Valuables
The bottom line is climate controlled storage maximizes the chances that your items will maintain their integrity and aesthetic appeal even if put in storage for years or longer. Opt for climate controlled storage within a building that is properly insulated and protected from the outdoor environment and you will sleep soundly knowing you did your part to safeguard your valuables. An added bonus is rodents and insects are less likely to be in climate controlled storage facilities, meaning there is less of a chance that your items will be gnawed on or laden with waste material from bugs/animals.
The Safe and Clean Long-term Storage You Deserve
The last thing you should have to think about when storing your items in a storage facility is whether they will be in the same shape when you take them out. If you choose a storage facility that is not climate controlled, your thoughts will gravitate toward the potential problems that will arise down the line. However, if you opt for climate controlled storage, you will place your items in a space carefully designed for long-term protection.
The bottom line is you simply do not know how long you will leave your items in storage. Assume you will leave these items in storage spaces for years, opt for a climate controlled storage facility and you won’t have to spend a single second worrying about their integrity should you leave those items in storage for an extended period of time, even if the outdoor temperature dramatically fluctuates.
