April 7th, 2021


With the rise of technology, people are making more and more advanced discoveries that help us protect our personal items. This is true even when these items are not directly on us or in our line of sight. That's why climate-controlled storage units are a great choice when you want to store your personal items in Slidell. But why are they important? Would a storage unit with climate control help protect your items, or would it just be a waste of time and money? Discover from the professionals at Dependable Storage why climate control is best for your storage needs.

That Louisiana Weather!

When it comes to the weather in Louisiana, it's really no joke. At one point of the year, the air can be bitter cold, and you never know how cold it's going to be until it is. In fact, did you know the coldest temperature ever recorded in Louisiana was -16 degrees? That being said, it's more often hot than it is cold. Especially with the summer months coming up, heat is going to be a really big issue when it comes to driving, walking, and even going outside. However, no matter what the temperature is, it's always humid. These wildly fluctuating temperatures can do some real damage to certain items within storage units that have no sort of climate control. You may not even notice that your precious items are slowly being destroyed by the outside climate until it’s too late. But what items really need a space with climate control?

What Items Really Need It?

Depending on the item, climate control is essential to prevent any sort of damage such as warping or melting. But, you may not realize that you need climate control until it's far too late. Some items that need climate control include:
  • Electronics. From DVD players, Gameboys, and even a shiny new PS5—all electronics are sensitive to intense temperatures and moisture.
  • Artwork. Art is usually delicate, especially if it’s vintage. With enough heat, cold, or moisture, your pieces could take a hit.
  • Media. Think about how delicate your DVDs are. or those old VHS tapes. Don’t let the heat destroy dad’s prized collection of cassette tapes either.
  • Anything made of wood, metal, wicker, leather, or upholstery. This may include a lot more than you may think. It includes many different kinds of furniture, some types of bicycles, and even clothes.
These are only some of the items that could possibly be in danger in a storage unit that has no climate control. But with the right storage units in Slidell, you can make sure your items are protected even when they're not in your home.
