A Guide To Storing Your Treasures

Hello, my name is Pete Stone. Over the years, I have met a lot of interesting people and we have exchanged gifts. Many of these gifts are very unique and irreplaceable, with some being custom-made or created by the gift giver himself or herself. The problem is that I live in an apartment that is not very large. My only solution to this problem is to purchase storage space. There is an art to using a self-storage unit that I have discovered. With the right storage techniques, your belongings will last. Because I have learned so much, I have decided to create this blog to share my knowledge with anyone who needs it.

A Guide On Climate Controlled Self Storage


Product damage is a significant concern for people who wish to store their items in self-storage facilities. Climate-controlled self-storage is an instant solution to this problem. These storage units incorporate insulation and AC units to regulate temperature and humidity. Below is a guide on climate-controlled self-storage.

What Is Climate Controlled Self Storage

The design of climate-controlled self-storage units keeps items under regulated temperature and humidity. The ideal controlled temperature ranges from 55 to 90 degrees and humidity below 50%. Ordinarily, temperature and humidity have an effect on moisture, which impacts the condition of stored items. In terms of structure, climate-controlled self-storage units are housed in an indoor storage facility. Typically, climate control relies on the use of technology to regulate temperature and humidity. 

You can store all kinds of items in a climate-controlled self-storage unit. However, the following items require climate control to last longer:

  • Artwork, antiques, and collectibles
  • Books, documents, and photographs
  • Clothes
  • Medical supplies
  • Sports equipment and materials
  • Wooden, metallic, and leather furniture

The listed materials react negatively to sudden and prolonged changes to temperature and moisture. For instance, wood cracks at high temperatures and rots with high humidity. Thus, in deciding whether an item needs climate-controlled storage, consider its sensitivity to extreme climate. If the valuable thing can deteriorate in an unregulated environment, consider renting a climate-controlled self-storage unit.

Benefits of Climate Controlled Self Storage

Provides a long-term storage solution: Climate-controlled storage is ideal for storing belongings over a long period. This need is more evident if you live in an area with high temperatures and a humid climate. These conditions contribute to item deterioration, thereby necessitating the need for climate-controlled storage. 

Storing valuable and irreplaceable belongs: Individuals often face the challenge of keeping precious items in good condition. Such items include artwork and antique collections whose value depends on the quality and age of the work. Additionally, it is not easy to maintain the quality of collectibles such as stamps and sneakers without specialized storage. So, climate-controlled self-storage preserves the value of unique and sentimental items. 

Air quality in the storage unit: Dust and debris often find their way into a self-storage unit located in an open space. In time, the dust particles accumulate and settle on stored properties. Gradually, they affect the composite elements of the item. On the contrary, climate-controlled self-storage units are indoor facilities. The building provides complete sealing from outdoor elements through sealed walls and insulated roofs. Then again, they use air regulating equipment that maintains air quality while filtering particles. Thus, dust accumulation becomes less a concern compared to traditional storage facilities. 

The principle behind climate-controlled self-storage is better safe than sorry. Paying an extra cost for climate-controlled storage is better than the loss of valuable belongings due to climate variability.
