The Benefits of Temperature-Controlled Storage
There are many benefits to temperature-controlled storage, including:
- Reducing the likelihood of damage to your belongings – Temperature-controlled storage facilities, like the ones SMARTBOX has, 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. Choosing temperature-controlled storage facilities can greatly reduce the risk of damages, including such things as warping, cracking, splitting, rusting, yellowing, and corrosion.
- Keeping 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.
- Reducing 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.
- Allowing you to store a variety of sensitive belongings safely – 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. Some examples of sensitive belongings you can store with SMARTBOX include:
- Videotapes and surveillance tapes
- Historical files and documents
- Musical instruments
- Important documents, such as legal documents, marriage licenses, accounting documents, medical tests, sonograms, etc.
