Protecting Your Valuables In Our Storage Units
Regular storage units can provide the protection and peace of mind you need for most of your stored possessions. However, certain items require protection from both rapid temperature changes and extreme humidity levels. If you need a storage rental but are not sure which items require a climate-controlled storage unit, reach out to our team — Gateway North Storage is always here and happy to help, so be sure to give us a call today!
A few items we consistently see in climate-controlled storage units include:
Antiques – From antique furniture to instruments, toys, and more, nearly every old-school product placed in storage has the potential to grow mold or mildew. Our facility is dry, clean, and protected from mold-producing conditions.
Fabrics – Over time, clothes can also fall victim to temperature changes in wet or dry conditions. Storing clothing that is not clean and properly prepared can also lead to mold growth!
Artwork – Fine art is not tailored to deal with extreme temperatures, making it ideal to find a place that hosts climate-controlled storage between 60 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Shrinking, curling, and mold can all ruin your valuables, so be sure to store and secure them right!
Electronics – While it is often not recommended to put your valuable tech in a storage center, our climate-controlled units ensure that your electronics are safe. Be sure to take extra steps to keep your valuables off the floor and away from moisture!
Records – True vinyl fans know to store their records vertically, but it also pays to keep them in a climate-controlled environment. This can prevent problems such as warping and brittleness.
Instruments – Often comprised of metal and wood, instruments are at risk for temperature and humidity damages.
Metal Products – The metals you place in your storage unit can begin to oxidize and rust if exposed to moisture and heavy humidity levels. Be sure to store your metal components in a high, dry spot to minimize corrosion.
