Wooden items, from heirloom armoires to contemporary tables, are particularly sensitive to climate changes. In humid and warm air, wood can swell or warp, while in dry, cold conditions, it can shrink and crack. Such damage not only affects the appearance but can also compromise the structural integrity of the furniture. Climate-controlled storage units at Greenbar Storage provide an ideal environment for wood furniture, maintaining consistent temperature and humidity levels to protect against these extremes.
Leather, Fabrics, and Upholstery
Leather sofas, fabric chairs, and other upholstered items are prone to damage in the wrong conditions. Warm, humid air creates the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew, which can cause permanent damage to these materials. In our climate-controlled units, the air quality is regulated to prevent the growth of these harmful organisms, ensuring your valuable furnishings remain pristine, free from the threat of mold and mildew infestation.
Magnetic Media and Record Albums
For collectors of vinyl records, cassettes, reel-to-reel tapes, computer discs, and hard drives, preserving the quality of these items is paramount. Exposure to heat can cause warping and damage to LPs, while magnetic media are highly susceptible to moisture and condensation. These can lead to loss of data and deterioration of sound quality. Greenbar Storage’s climate-controlled units offer a safe haven for these sensitive items, keeping them at a stable temperature and humidity level to prevent such damage.
Musical instruments require special care when it comes to storage. Stringed instruments like violins and guitars, brass instruments, woodwinds, and pianos are all vulnerable to climate fluctuations. Warping, joint damage, and the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria can occur in adverse conditions, affecting both the appearance and the sound quality of the instruments. Our climate-controlled storage units provide a stable environment crucial for preserving the integrity and sound of your precious instruments.
Storage Tips: How to Get the Most Out of Climate-Controlled Storage
At Greenbar Storage, we understand that storing your belongings in a climate-controlled unit is just the first step. To truly protect and preserve your items, it’s crucial to store them correctly. Here are some expert tips to help you get the most out of our climate-controlled storage units.
Leave Room for Air Movement
Proper air circulation is key in preventing mold and mildew. Arrange your items with enough space between them to allow air to move freely. This is especially important for furniture and boxes that may trap moisture. Keeping items slightly apart ensures a healthier environment for your belongings.
Elevate Items Off the Floor
Concrete floors, even in climate-controlled environments, can transmit moisture. Cardboard boxes and other porous materials can absorb this moisture, leading to damage. Elevate your items using wire shelving, 4 by 4-inch lumber, or other sturdy supports. This simple step can significantly reduce the risk of moisture damage, especially in the case of valuable or sensitive items.
Invest in Silica Packets
Silica gel packets are excellent for controlling moisture in enclosed spaces. These packets, often found in new purchases and labeled “Do not eat”, can be placed in storage boxes to help keep contents dry. They come in various sizes, from small packets for smaller containers to large vented boxes ideal for electronics and camera cases. This extra layer of protection is particularly beneficial for items sensitive to humidity, such as electronics, documents, and textiles.
Pack Like a Preservationist
Educate yourself about proper preservation methods for different materials. For instance, wrapping items in acid-free paper, using sturdy, high-quality boxes, and avoiding plastic bags for long-term storage can significantly extend the life of your belongings. This approach is particularly important for valuable or sentimental items like antiques, photographs, and collectibles.
Label Everything Clearly
Clear labeling not only helps you find things quickly but also ensures that delicate items are handled properly. Use large, easy-to-read labels and consider listing the contents on each box. This will make it easier to locate specific items and reduce the need to open and move boxes frequently.
Even in a climate-controlled environment, it’s a good idea to check on your stored items periodically. This will help you spot any potential issues early, such as a box showing signs of wear or an item that needs repositioning.
