When you are moving your belongings into storage, you have a big decision to make. You have to decide whether you want a regular storage unit that is exposed to the elements or a climate controlled storage facility. Climate controlled facilities are typically storage units located inside of a building. The building is typically heated and cooled, as needed, and has precautions in place to control the humidity level as well. Learning the benefits will help you decide why you should use a climate controlled storage facility for your items.


Temperature Sensitive Furniture Does Not Get Damaged

You may not realize it, but a lot of your furniture is temperature sensitive. Items like wood and leather can be damaged in extremely hot or cold temperatures. Wood can dry out and begin to split, whereas leather can begin to crack or tear. You want your items to come out of the storage facility in the same condition they went in, so you can make use of these items again. Storing them in a climate controlled unit ensures that they maintain their current condition.


The Risk of Mold and Mildew on Clothing or Material is Minimized

Clothing, upholstery, and other fabrics are at risk of mold or mildew growing on them if the humidity and temperature levels are right. Mold and mildew can both stain and ruin your clothing, upholstered couches, or curtains that you have packed up. Climate controlled units control the moisture level in the air, making the facilitating inhospitable to the growth of mold and mildew.


You Have a Wider Range of Items You Can Store in Your Unit

The last benefits to using a climate controlled storage facility is that you have the ability to safely store more items in your unit. If your unit is not climate controlled, it is not recommended that you store canvas art pieces, metal art pieces, wine, comic books or other types of collectibles in your unit. When your unit is climate controlled, these items can all be safely stored without damaging the item, allowing you to place more of your belongings in the unit.
