Storing In Climate Controlled Space


In non-climate controlled space the contents of a unit are exposed to the normal humidity in the air. In this area humidity is often very high which can cause mold and mildew. Over time mold and mildew can cause deterioration and discoloration so we recommend some items be stored in climate controlled space to insure they are not damaged by the environment. The longer the planned storage, the more important climate controlled storage is. Below is a list of items that should be stored in a climate controlled environment:
