Storing Your Summer Gear for Winter

StoringGearWinterSummer certainly held on this year. In New England, jackets haven’t made much of an appearance, but the temperature is definitely trending down. So c’mon — we know it’s tough, but it’s time to loosen your grip on summer. You could stuff all your summer gear in the basement or garage, but why deal with all that clutter and potential damage to your prized summer items? Instead, store them properly in your storage unit so it’ll be ready when warm weather comes again.

Summer Clothing

Make room in your closet by putting shorts and sundresses in storage. Make sure to wash and dry them thoroughly, paying careful attention to stain removal. Toss a few silica packets into plastic storage bins and pack up your clothes. The silica packets will prevent dampness from ruining your clothes. Of course, so will a temperature controlled storage unit!

Summer Gear

Wakeboards, surfboards and water skis all should be cleaned thoroughly and dried before making the move to storage. Then you can put them in a clearly labeled and sealed box, or lean them against the wall or in a specially designed shelf in your storage unit.

Pool Supplies

If you’re one of the lucky ones with a backyard swimming pool, it’s probably very hard to kiss summer goodbye by covering it up for the winter. But winter’s coming whether you want it to or not! Clean and dry pool toys and store them in a box. Electrical supplies, like the pool vac or pumps, should be drained of water and allowed to dry. Pack them away in a box with a few silica packs, which will eliminate any dampness that will inevitably remain.

Now that your summer chores are over, put on a pair of cozy slippers, wrap your hands around a mug of tea, and watch the leaves fall. That’s not so bad, is it?

The Importance of Self Storage Unit Climate Control

thermometer-428339_1280There’s an old saying in New England that everyone has heard at least once in their life: “If you don’t like the weather here, wait 10 minutes.”

New England does have its share of wild temperature swings and even crazier weather when each season reaches its apex, but so do a lot of other regions in the country. That’s why no matter where you live, if you have a storage unit and you’re concerned about keeping everything in it in good shape, you’ll want to choose a storage facility with climate control.

Climate Controlled storage uses heating units and air conditioning to keep a more consistent climate in the building. Some facilities even go the extra step and have units installed to prevent excess humidity, which can be even more damaging than heat or cold.

The frequent changes in temperature and humidity are the main causes of damage to wooden furniture, fabrics, cardboard, and other items. It’s not unusual to find that wood stored in a non-climate-controlled unit has warped, or that fabric has mildewed.

Even if a climate-controlled unit is a little more expensive, when you consider the damage that the elements can do to your stored items, it’s a worthwhile investment.
