In addition to traditional storage units, most self-storage companies also offer climate controlled space. Climate controlled storage is usually kept at a temperature of anywhere between 50 degrees to 70 degrees. This regulation of temperature protects items from the fluctuations which can cause damage such as warping. But when are climate controlled units really necessary?

Climate controlled self-storage can aid in the prevention of warping, rusting and rot. It also can help avoid the spread of mold, mildew, bacteria and dust mites. A climate controlled storage unit is typically recommended if any of the following items are being stored:

  • Musical equipment
  • Artwork
  • Mattresses
  • Retail or pharmaceutical inventory
  • Fine clothing and linens
  • Antiques
  • Books
  • Photographs and personal records
  • Business records
  • Electronics
  • Furniture
