Follow these simple tips to help minimize damage caused by both humidity and heat:
• Temperature – Avoid exposing items to extreme heat. Climate controlled storage units offer the best protection for items sensitive to high temperatures.
• Glass frames – Photographs kept in storage should be protected behind the safety of a glass frame, the glass will act as a barrier from the moisture. Unfortunately bubbling under the photo’s surface can still occur if humidity levels get high enough.
• Store items properly – When storing carpets or rugs, be sure to roll the carpet. The carpet creates a barrier out of itself, naturally preserving itself far better than it would be if openly exposed.
• Seal items in plastic – For smaller items, such as electronics or books, can largely benefit from having a barrier between them and the humidity. This can be as simple as using a plastic bag or using large sheets of plastic to drape over objects.
