What Not To Store In The Heat

Nothing beats the convenience of having a storage container for your extra belongings, but the summertime heat can cause some to worry about how safe their items are. If your unit isn’t climate controlled, there are some things that can face damage. Review our list of items that shouldn’t be stored in heat. Then, feel free to give us a call to find a storage solution that is right for you. The Mobile Attic is here to help!

Wood & Leather Furniture

person carrying boxIf you have any wooden furniture, be careful when storing them in areas with high heat and humidity. These conditions can trigger moisture, which will cause the wood to warp, rot, or even crack and fall apart. These pieces are simply more sensitive to big fluctuations in temperature, so storing them out of the summertime heat is always your best bet.

Leather furniture is also prone to experience damage when exposed to higher temperatures. The color will fade, and the moisture will make it more likely to form mold and mildew. You’ll wind up needing new pieces, so save yourself the stress by storing them out of the heat.

Artwork

The paint in your wall art will crack, as well as expand and contract when exposed to high temperatures. If you have any artwork that you’d like to keep in tip-top condition, you should consider storing it somewhere that is climate-controlled.

Photos & Heirlooms

Anything sentimental, important, or irreplaceable should be kept out of the heat. Photos and other important documents like birth certificates, banking information, and more can fade, face discoloration, or experience moisture-related damage. With things that are precious, it is definitely not worth taking any risks!

Along with this, heirlooms such as jewelry that has been passed down can corrode or break down in the high heat of summertime storage. It’s always best to keep these items close to you and stored in a secure area of your home.

Electronics

Any screens in storage won’t typically bode well with extreme temperatures, so televisions, laptops, cell phones, and the like should be kept in a cooler climate. The humidity that is often associated with higher temperatures will cause moisture to form and trigger significant damage to your devices.
