Use Temperature-Controlled Storage This Summer

Posted on: May 27, 2016

When you store your belongings over the summer, you may want to consider using a temperature-controlled storage unit. After all, you’ll want to find your belongings the way you left them! Because some of your items may be valuable or sensitive to different environments, having a climate-controlled storage box can make all the difference.

If you live in Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC and need a temperature-controlled storage unit, call 301-683-6111 today and speak with the storage experts at SMARTBOX.

Do You Need Climate-Controlled Storage?

As you prepare to find the right storage solution for your items, consider the following questions:

  • Does the temperature of the place in which you are storing items exceed 90 degrees Fahrenheit?
  • Will your storage unit be in a humid climate?
  • Do your possessions have high monetary or sentimental value to you?
  • Are you storing your belongings for a long period of time?
  • Are you unsure of the duration of storage time you’ll need?
  • Are you going to visit the storage box often—and if so, will you need temperate conditions?

If you nodded your head “yes” to any of these questions, a temperature-controlled storage unit would probably benefit you!

How Can a Temperature-Controlled Storage Unit Help?

Climate-controlled storage units tend to have different attributes depending on the company. At SMARTBOX, our units will help:

  • Reduce the likelihood of damage to your belongings – Temperature-controlled storage facilities maintain a consistent temperature no matter the season. If your belongings are stored in a facility that is not temperature-controlled, the severe hot and cold weather can damage your belongings—not only can this be upsetting, it can be costly, too.
  • Keep your things inside of a finished building – Since temperature-controlled storage facilities are finished buildings with complete HVAC systems, there is the added benefit of security for your belongings. They won’t simply be put into a room with a garage door closure securing them from any outside elements, pests, or even other people.
  • Reduce the chances of mold or mildew growth – When the temperature is kept consistent, it greatly reduces the chances of mold or mildew growth. Not only can temperature-controlled storage facilities help prevent the damage caused by mold and mildew growth, but also the health hazards they pose if these items are returned to your home or office.
  • Safely store a variety of sensitive belongings – Temperature-controlled storage facilities allow you to safely store all of your sensitive belongings. Using temperature-controlled storage helps to prevent any corruption or damage that could happen to these sensitive items if they were to be subjected to the elements or severe changes in temperature.
