Most people know what a self storage unit is but there is a big difference in the typical storage unit compared to a humidity controlled storage unit. Humidity controlled self storage units are upgraded versions of the standard and traditional self storage unit. The humidity controlled self storage units usually maintain their humidity at 55% while the humidity controlled units maintain their temperature between 55F to 90F. This allows customers store your valuables during a hot, humid and rainy day, your items will remain at a comfortable temperature and humidity.
Many times the climate controlled self storage units and humidity controlled units are both converged together into one self storage unit. This means that you get the benefit of both storage units into one location. This is very helpful when storing any items.
There are a number of items that would benefit from humidity controlled storage. These items are generally chosen because they are very sensitive to temperature and humidity. A good example would be items such as wine, spirits or other items that require long term storage. Humidity control is also good for business storage. Documents will deteriorate if left in standard storage. For instance items like guitars, pianos or other musical instruments may be stored in a humidity controlled self storage facility along with music sheets and lyrics. All the items will be safe in a storage facility that has humidity and temperature controlled units.
There are some people who feel that temperature and humidity are not going to harm their items. This is often a big mistake for the customer. Humidity will often warp items such as wood. Also, if you have any metal items to store, it may cause them to rust. This means that items like guitars, pianos and other items that are comprised of wood and metal would suffer if left in a storage unit that is not climate and temperature controlled..
