Summers in north Alabama are hot and humid. High temperatures and high humidity are two of the leading causes of damage to goods in storage. The scorching summers in north Alabama can leave their mark on even the hardiest items. Severe hot weather can and often will damage items in your outdoor storage unit. Things like important documents, computer equipment and electronics, wood or leather furniture, photographs, books, clothing, artwork and other valuable possessions are all susceptible to extreme temperature if they’re not properly protected.
Our storage units offer protection from heat
With our climate-controlled self-storage, you’ll find the highest level of protection from heat and humidity. These storage units are indoors and are maintained using central air conditioning and heat hroughout the year to ensure a steady temperature. Maintaining this temperature can minimize risk of damage to your belongings from the harsh heat, and it makes the storage unit more comfortable whenever you need to access your unit. You not only have protection from heat and cold, but also extra protection from other types of weather (rain storms or dust storms), as well as pests that become more active in the summer.
These units are ideal if you’re storing photographs, leather furniture or electronics. These units would be the equivalent of, say, storing your things in a spare room in your house as opposed to storing your belongings in an hot and dusty garage.
Risks of storing items in high temperatures and humidity:
- Mold and mildew growth
- Damage to items, like cracking or warping due to melting
