Climate Controlled Storage Tips
What is Climate Controlled Storage?
A climate controlled storage unit will help to protect your items from dangerous fluctuations in temperature.

Do I Need Climate Controlled Storage?
Depending on what you are storing, you may need a climate controlled storage unit. Read below to determine if a climate controlled storage unit is best for you.
- Wooden and leather furniture: Wooden and leather furniture are very prone to fluctuations in temperature. After being exposed to heat over a long period of time, both leather and wooden furniture can actually dry out and crack.
- Electronics: Both the screen of electronics and the internal components of electronics are very sensitive to fluctuations in temperature. Additionally, when exposed to heat for a long period of time, the internal wiring can rust or break.
- Personal and business documents: Fluctuations in temperature can age documents and cause the ink to fade or be unreadable.
- Appliances: Just like with electronics, long-term exposure to heat can damage the electrical and mechanical parts of the appliances. This can permanently damage the appliances and leave them unusable.
- Musical instruments: Depending on the kind of musical instrument, the damage caused by temperature can vary. For string instruments, the strings can actually snap. Brass instruments can rust when exposed to changes in temperature, and wooden instruments can warp.
- Mattresses: When stored long-term in a traditional storage unit, the material of the mattress can mold, and the mattress springs can rust.
