Why You Need Climate Control

If you’re looking for a storage facility you’re probably looking for one that’s conveniently located, provides easy access to your inventory or belongings, and is protected against fire, theft and climate changes. Climate controlled storage matters regardless of the materials.

Sure, you might think that any facility will do all that. But in many of them, your items will only be a little safer than they would be stashed away in your garage. That’s because extremes in temperature—like the searing summers and freezing winters we have in the Baltimore Washington region—can harm many of your belongings. If the storage facility you use is not climate controlled, your valuable possessions could be damaged or destroyed.

Climate Matters

You might be surprised at the number of things that need a steady climate, for instance:

  • Photographs
  • Historical documents
  • Media files
  • Computers
  • Wine
  • Musical instruments
  • Antique rugs
  • Plastics
  • Wooden furniture
  • Coin or stamp collections

This is especially true of anything you keep in long term storage, when there’s more of a chance that problems can develop, including:

  • Fading and discoloration
  • Development of mold and mildew
  • Warping and twisting
  • Drying and cracking

Electronics are very sensitive to moisture, which can destroy their internal mechanisms. Your television, computers and phones may have been working fine when they went into the warehouse but be useless when you take them out.

Wooden and leather items can warp or crack in extreme weather changes, and photographs can melt if left in a hot, humid place. Mold and mildew will destroy clothing, artwork, rugs and upholstered furniture. Cars and other appliances can get rusty if left in a damp unit.
