Self Storage

July 13th, 2021


Summer is upon us one again, and you know that means: If you’re getting ready for a move, prepare yourself for the intense Arkansas heat and humidity. Not only will you sweat bullets, but your belongings could be in danger if exposed to the elements.

Thankfully, we have the perfect solution: climate-controlled storage units.

The Dangers of Non-Climate Units

At Modern Storage, we can help insure your items are protected with our dehumidified, temperature-controlled storage options. But the same cannot be said if you choose a non-climate unit.Quite a few things could go wrong if you don’t choose wisely:

  1. Moisture – Humidity in the air leads to moisture everywhere. A non-climate unit cannot prevent moisture from dampening (and ruining) your fabrics, furniture, and boxes.
  2. Mold and Mildew – What comes after moisture? That’s right, the not-so-fun duo of mold and mildew. Would you be okay if your mattresses, couches, chairs, and clothes started to smell funky and grow spores?
  3. Warping – Exposure to extreme heat can cause items like photos, plastics, leather, and wood to warp or deform. If you choose a non-climate-controlled storage unit, that’s the risk you would take.
  4. Rusting – Humidity and extreme temperatures take a toll on electronics, too. Choosing to forego a climate-controlled unit could rust your electronics and make them unusable.

In all seriousness, climate-controlled storage units are the only way to save your stuff from the swells of summer.

You may not know it, but the everyday items most people store are also the most vulnerable to damage from extreme temperatures and humidity.

What would you do if your documents, artwork, photos, electronics, fabrics, and other sensitive items were damaged in any way? It’s not worth the risk!

Climate control is the only way for us to help insure your items are protected while under our care.
