Unless your storage unit has climate-control, it’s probably feeling the heat this summer, especially with the humid, scorching days we see in Greenville, NC. That’s why it’s important to take steps to keep your storage unit cool and your items protected.

Here are some tips to help you protect your storage unit during the hot summer months:

  • First of all, if you plan to spend time in your storage unit during the summer months, be sure to bring along water to stay hydrated and a portable fan to keep yourself cool. 
  • If you feel that your unit is humid, bring a cool-mist humidifier to help remove extra moisture and keep your unit cool. There are also a number of products that help remove excess moisture in enclosed spaces.
  • Pallets are a simple and effective way to protect your belongings from the changing temperatures. Instead of placing items directly on the floor, place them on a pallet to protect them from direct contact with the extreme temperatures.
  • Keep in mind that certain items should only be stored in a climate-controlled unit. For example, items such as vinyl records, photographs, and wine could be damaged by the extreme temperatures that non-climate controlled units can reach.

For more expert advice, feel free to speak with our storage professionals at either of our two locations. We are also happy to help answer any of your questions about storage.
