You may not think you need air conditioned storage in Texas, but chances are you are mistaken in that thinking.  Write down this number . . . (817) 439-1380 . . . you might just need it after you read this article.

Why self storage units need climate control . . .

Let’s talk about oxidation.  Extreme heat causes oxidation.  In Texas, summers can see 115 degrees.  That qualifies as extreme heat and yes, it will cause oxidation.

What is oxidation?  Think of it as a change in electrons in matter, and think of a change in electrons as a change in the matter itself.  And yes, extreme heat will cause oxidation, which means it will change the appearance of an object.

Which materials are subject to oxidation damage?  Get ready for a shock!

The following are just a partial list of items in storage units which can be damaged by oxidation:

  • Wood furniture
  • Leather furniture
  • Household appliances
  • Special collections
  • Coins
  • Stamps
  • Wine
  • Musical instruments
  • Artwork
  • Clothing
  • Business documents
  • Photos
  • Electronics

In other words, practically everything that people normally place in a mini storage, can be harmed by extreme heat.

Thus the need for air conditioned storage!
