  • Tyler, TX (1888PressRelease) May 17, 2024 - According to Forbes, as of 2023, the United Sates has 51,206 storage facilities and about 11.1% of American households make use of those facilities. PODS Tyler Longview offers weather-resistant storage containers that can be stored at home or in a secure PODS facility. The leading moving and storage provider has put together a guide on how to decide if you need climate-controlled storage by breaking down items that need to be stored in a cool, dry place and items that can be stored in a normal unit.

    Items that need to be in climate-controlled storage:
    Furniture – Whether it’s antique, wood, leather, or anything sensitive to environmental changes, storing these items in a non-climate-controlled unit could lead to warping and damage.

    Paper – Art, photos, and important documents are highly susceptible to damage in humid environments, making non-climate-controlled storage unsuitable for their preservation.

    Electronics – The heat in a non-climate-controlled unit can cause rusted connections and melting plastic, 0posing a significant threat to electronic devices.

    Instruments – Sensitivity to extreme temperatures and humidity makes instruments highly vulnerable to damage in a non-climate-controlled storage unit, compromising their functionality.

    Items that do not need climate control:
    Clothing – Safely store your clothing items in sealed containers, especially those worn less frequently. While finer pieces may be best kept with you, non-daily wear items are perfect for storage.

    Kitchen items – Ensure easy retrieval by labeling boxes and grouping similar items together. Plates, china, and glasses will remain intact and organized during storage.

    Holiday decorations – From lights to outdoor adornments, your holiday decorations will stay pristine in storage.

    Patio furniture – Built to withstand outdoor elements, patio furniture thrives in storage units, maintaining its quality and durability until needed again.

    Hardware – Tools and materials are resilient enough to withstand temperature fluctuations in non-climate-controlled storage, ensuring they’re ready for use when needed.

    Curtains and drapes – Before storing, ensure curtains and drapes are clean and thoroughly dry to prevent mildew and maintain freshness during storage.

    “Texas residents are no strangers to fluctuations in climate as the seasons change,” said Steve Goates, Owner of PODS Tyler Longview. “We aim to use our expertise to provide quality service and information on the best storage solution based on the items that they are putting away.”
