With winter in full effect in Lincoln and the entire state of Nebraska, most of us are focusing on how to stay warm for the next couple of months. If you are one of the many Lincoln storage unit owners, though, you should also be keeping your prized possessions in mind.
Here are some tips for keeping your items safe this winter.
Look for a Climate Controlled Unit
Many people think of climate control as a way to keep a storage unit cool in the summer months. The winter can be just as damaging to your possessions, and it is just as important for your possessions to be in a climate controlled unit. If you already have a storage unit or are looking for one during the winter months, you should definitely inquire about renting a climate controlled unit to protect your valuables.
Visit The Unit
If you have had a storage unit for an extended period of time, you may not visit it very often. When it comes to winter, you should take the time to visit the unit to make sure you know exactly what is being stored inside. There may be very valuable items that are susceptible to the cold that should be removed for the winter. The best way to ensure all of your storage items remain safe is to know exactly what is inside your unit.
If you are storing televisions, computers or other electronic devices, you should be wary of keeping them in a storage unit over the winter. Freezing temperatures can cause irreparable damage to electronic devices, so it is not recommended to keep them in a storage unit over the winter. If you have to keep your electronics in a storage unit, you should definitely look into a climate controlled unit and also cover or insulate your electronics.
Lincoln storage facilities provide a great deal of value and can be a great solution for your winter storage needs if you follow the tips above. For more information about Lincoln storage units or winter storage tips, contact or visit us at Stevens Creek Storage today.
