Have you ever taken an item out of storage and been horrified to find it is damaged or ruined?

It is very easy to run out of room for your belongings. It is one thing just to throw your tools in a shed; but what about your childhood keepsakes, important documents, and other valuables? Belongings that are important to you need to be stored properly to prevent damage.

Many people don’t realize that damage from improper storage can occur from humidity, heat, and cold. When you want your belongings to stay in their current condition, climate-controlled storage is a must. The high humidity in Mississippi alone can cause a huge amount of damage to your things: photos stick together, wood warps, leather cracks, appliance parts rust – the list goes on and on.

With climate-controlled storage, valuable and personal items won’t ruin. The paint on those kitchen chairs that used to be your grandmothers won’t peel from getting too hot. Those video games and movies you have collected since you were little won’t crack from the low temperatures or melt from hot temperatures. Climate controlled storage is an excellent way of taking care of the things that are most important to you.
