Any native Texan knows the summers can be unforgiving when it comes to the heat. Most recently the Houston area has been under sever to extreme drought conditions. Chances for rain are rather low, with the best description for the current temperature being “dry heat.” With some radical weather conditions going on, your stored items will need all the protection they need, which is why you should really consider getting climate controlled storage.
There are a wide variety of items that can be damaged without proper protection, such as important documentation, computer equipment, electronics, wood or leather furniture, photographs, books, clothing, artwork, and other valuable possessions. Using central air conditioning and heat, climate controlled storage units maintain a steady temperate of 55-80 degrees Fahrenheit. A controlled environment like this minimizes the risk of:
- Warping, cracking, and splitting
- Rusting, yellowing, and corrosion
- Mold, mildew, and bacteria overgrowth
- Infestation of wasps, mice, termites, and other vermin
Long-term storage can take its toll on your items, especially in extreme temperatures. Investing in climate control is most definitely a smart storage decision if you are hoping to keep your items in great condition.
