Climate-Controlled Storage Units
Climate-controlled storage units are the best way to store your items that require the temperature to stay constant year-round. These units are a specialized service that storage companies offer to meet the diverse needs of residents. At 700 Block Storage, we have many different sizes of units that are located inside our 5-story building that are temperature-controlled to protect all of our customers’ possessions from moisture damage.
What Is Climate Control Storage?
Climate-controlled storage facilities continuously circulate the air so that the air remains clean. By keeping your storage unit from getting too hot or too cold, you can be sure your items stay preserved. Climate-controlled storage maintains levels of temperature, humidity, and air quality so that bacteria don’t have the right conditions to grow. At 700 Block Storage, depending upon outside weather, temperatures stay between 55 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
Self-storage units that are equipped with temperature control are a great place to store many items that don’t handle fluctuations in temperature that are more common in your home. Storage units that are not temperature controlled are at the ambient conditions outside. For items that are prone to warping, mold growth, or discoloration, climate-controlled storage units are essential.
What Items Need Climate-Controlled Storage?
Wood furniture: Chairs, tables, art frames, or exterior furniture made of wood could crack or warp if exposed to moisture. Plus, any furniture that has leather or fabric on it is susceptible to mold if moisture is present.
Electronics: Computers, cameras, audio equipment, and gaming systems can begin to rust in humid conditions. This will reduce the conductivity. Since most electronics are expensive, it is wise to invest in climate-controlled storage to ensure the item’s longevity.
Documents and photographs: Important tax documents, social security cards, family photos, or expensive artwork can be damaged if not stored properly. All photos and financial records are better stored in a climate-controlled storage unit. Paper on stamps and comic book collections could be affected by moisture. Working with 700 Block Storage to use a climate-controlled storage unit will keep these items from aging and keep them intact.
Musical instruments: Musical instruments are often made out of metals, wood, or electronics. All of these materials can be affected by humidity and mold. Moisture can damage the aesthetic look of your instruments and even affect their performance. When your musical items are not stored properly, their function could be permanently altered.
Clothing: Fabric could also be impacted by mold and mildew. Climate-controlled storage should be used when you have clothing that is either rented, borrowed, expensive, or other special care.
Food or wine: Those in the food industry or wine enthusiasts can benefit from climate-controlled storage units. Keeping food and wine at proper temperatures to prevent spoiling is important to avoid wasted money. Wine also needs to be kept at a proper temperature and humidity to age gracefully. Climate-controlled storage units improve the flavor profile of aged wines.
Extend the Life of Essential Items
Implementing climate-controlled storage in your life can extend the usable life of your items. In the long run, extending the lifespan of your items can save you money by limiting repairs and the need for replacement.
