Do You Need Climate-Controlled Storage?

- 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.
