The Benefit of Climate-Controlled Storage
What’s the benefit of climate-controlled storage? Is it worth it?
Climate-controlled storage units are kept at optimal temperatures, so even in the heat of the summer or the freezing winters, you can trust that your items will be safe. Extreme temperatures can result in furniture damage, cracked or warped wood, and even pests.
Here are the benefits of climate-controlled units:
An added layer of protection. Climate-controlled units protect your sensitive belongings such as wood furniture, antiques, art, books, electronics, and documents from extreme weather conditions.
Protection from dust. Climate-controlled units typically see less dirt and have better air quality, meaning less dust and less damage to your items.
Protection from pests. Because climate-controlled units are inside facilities rather than stand-alone units, you can typically expect pest control.
Less probability of mold. Climate-controlled units protect against humidity, which means you’re less likely to see any mold buildup in your unit.
Less smell. Again, air quality! Because of the air quality and air flow inside climate-controlled units, you’re less likely to experience any smells. This can mean a lot when you’re storing furniture or clothing items!
More safety and peace of mind. Climate-controlled units are typically armed with keypads, cameras, and employees who can help keep your items safe.
So, is climate control worth it?
At the end of the day, it all depends on what you’ll be storing. Climate-controlled units give you an added layer of protection and can help you feel more confident in the safety of your belongings. But if you’re not storing vulnerable items like furniture, antiques, or electronics, any type of unit can suffice.
