Do you have too many possessions, and not enough room to store them? If you need to get rid of them, of course, having a garage sale or simply giving them away are options. But if you're like many families, you need climate controlled self storage to simply store your possessions for a while, not get rid of them.
The thing is, today, many houses don't have the attic space or other storage space they once did, to store your possessions. And even if they did, chances are, you wouldn't be able to store many of your much more delicate possessions there anyway, unless you wanted to risk ruining them. That's where climate controlled self storage can help.
With climate controlled self storage, you can store valuable, "can't be replaced" items, such as precious family heirlooms or expensive investment items like paintings, antiques, or other valuable items that while they have a price, can't be replaced easily.
What's so great about climate controlled self-storage?
The thing about climate controlled self storage is, not only do you make sure your possessions are stored securely and safely away from theft or direct damage, as might happen if they weren't carefully preserved, but you also are sure that they'll be in a climate controlled unit, such that temperature, humidity and moisture/dryness are all carefully controlled so that items don't suffer the vagaries of temperature fluctuations, too much humidity, or dryness that can make delicate items parched, and so on.
When it comes to climate, no matter where you live, chances are you have significant fluctuations in temperature and humidity. Add to that the fact that you can have sudden temperature changes within a very short period of time, and you can see where these fluctuations can be damaging to items. Wood can warp, paper can crinkle, precious documents can be ruined, and paintings can simply "melt." That's where climate controlled self storage can help you preserve these items in pristine condition until such time as you want to use them again -- or even keep them for long-term storage, in the event they are actually investments.
With climate-controlled self-storage , you are sure that you'll have a steady temperature and humidity that is equalized, too. Most often, a climate controlled self storage will generally have temperatures between 55° and 70° Fahrenheit, which is perfect for delicate items. Wood, leather, fragile paper, canvas, oil paintings -- all of these things will be much better preserved in climate controlled self storage than they could be in self storage or in your garage. Find climate controlled self storage today, at very reasonable prices, and have the peace of mind that comes from knowing your precious possessions are protected for you, and perhaps for future generations, too.
