How to protect your stored goods from hot weather
Are you moving and thinking about storing your possessions in a storage unit temporarily? Or maybe you want to free up some space around your home by placing unused items in a storage locker until you need them again. Perhaps you already have things in storage that you haven’t thought about in awhile. The common element affecting all these scenarios at the moment is summer heat.
Heat causes irreparable damage to some goods. You’ll want to make sure anything you’re moving into storage right now is properly stored and protected. You’ll also want to double check on possessions that are already in storage and may be at risk. They might be vulnerable if they were stored at a time when heat wasn’t an issue and therefore weren’t protected with that in mind.
Heat and humidity wreak havoc on a number of items including:
- Wooden and leather furniture
- Musical instruments
- Photographs and artworks
- Collectibles like wine, comics, cards, vinyl records, CDs
Many of these items are expensive to replace and can be of sentimental value. They need to be protected from warping, cracking, rusting, mould and mildew.
The number one way to protect your possessions is to store them in climate-controlled storage units. Not only do these types of units maintain a steady, safe temperature, they also keep their environment at a constant humidity level. This way your items will not be susceptible to the heat that will cause damage.
