Prevent Costly Damages

Choosing a traditional self-storage drive-up unit might be considered cheap storage initially, but long-term it can leave you with costly damages. A regular storage unit is not a controlled environment, which can provide an unfavorable environment for sensitive items and possibility of damages.

Storable Valuable Items to consider when using indoor climate-controlled storage versus outside drive-up storage. These items can be extra sensitive to the hot and cold environments and can be damaged if not stored in an environment that is temperature controlled. Using a temperature-controlled environment you can avoid warping damage to wooden items and reduces the possibility of rust, corrosion, mold and mildew.

Storage Tips for Climate-Controlled Storage

  • Leave Room for Air Movement – If you’re storing valuable items, leave space for air to move between boxes and furniture. It reduces the chance of mold or mildew invading your things.
  • Elevate Things off the Floor – Cardboard boxes will soak up any moisture they can find, even the dew that condenses on concrete floor in humid environments. Use wire shelving, plastic totes, 4-by-4 inch lumber, or other strong supports to store everything at above-floor level.
  • Refrigerator Storage – If you’re storing a refrigerator, be sure to keep the refrigerator unplugged for at least a day with the door open. Wipe out the refrigerator and then store with the door open to prevent mold or mildew. 
  • Freezer Storage - If you’re storing a freezer, be sure to keep the freezer unplugged for at least a day with the door open. Wipe out the freezer and then store with the door open to prevent mold or mildew.
