OUR CORE VALUES: HONESTY. INTEGRITY. RESPECT.
Standard self storage units are sufficient for most household and business items, but your temperature-sensitive and irreplaceable goods need the added protection of climate-controlled storage. Extreme heat can melt your DVD collection and cause wood furniture to expand and crack. Exposure to humidity encourages mold and mildew growth, which can deteriorate your books, photos, and textiles. The longer these items are stored in an uncontrolled environment the more susceptible they are to damage.
Shopping for climate-controlled storage along with choosing the right storage facility requires much the same research that you would do for any type of storage unit. Climate-controlled storage protects your belongings from extreme temperatures and humidity, but you still want the security of knowing you’re protected from theft, fire, and other unforeseen events.
Be aware that there is a difference between temperature-controlled and climate-controlled storage. Climate-controlled units are typically kept between 55 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit with a base humidity of 55 percent. Temperature-controlled means only that the temperature is regulated, but not the humidity. Depending on what you’re storing, humidity can sometimes cause more damage than temperature. Clearly, the facility that you choose should offer year-round climate control for both temperature and humidity.
