Are climate-controlled self storage units for you?

The self storage industry continues to dominate even in the trying economy. With more people opting to store their belongings at such facilities, it might be helpful to know what to look for, SelfStorageBlog.com reports.

According to the source, some might assume that any old storage facility will do when storing items ranging from furniture to home theater systems. However, this is not the case and some valuables should be kept in specific units.

As the market grows, more options in storage have also taken off and one of the top amenities is climate-controlled units. Keeping electronics or fine furniture in a heated portable self storage container might work best, as this can protect valuables against moisture or breaking due to extreme changes in climate. Items like books, antiques or wooden furniture might also benefit from staying in a warm container, as these items could begin to rot or develop mold over time if they reside in a cold, damp space.

InsideSelfStorage.com reports that a climate controlled unit typically keeps the space below 90 degrees in the summer and above 40 degrees in the winter. Most have humidity levels of less than 65 percent to keep mold and mildew at bay.
