Placing Off Season Sports Gear In Storage

Hi there, my name is Becky Strichertz. Welcome to my website about placing off season sports gear in storage. When I was playing sports through college, I placed myself on every team I could to learn all about the sports world. I hoped to develop a strong reputation as a sports star at my school. Not long after my first year, my apartment was filled to the brim with gear. I decided to place the items in storage during the off season. I will explore this topic in great detail on my site. I invite you to tag along to learn about this fun subject.

Tips For Storing Seasonal Items In A Storage Facility

As a property owner, you likely have multiple items that are only used during certain seasons or times of the year. This means you likely use a nearby storage facility. You may also use a storage option that has climate controlled options. The misconception is that a climate controlled storage unit is all you need to maintain your items during the off seasons. The truth is, there are other steps you need to take to maintain the storage facility and your items. Here are some tips for maintaining both. 

Leave Ventilation Room

When people use their storage facility, they may overpack the area. They may also pack up the area as tight as they can. The problem with this packing technique deals with ventilation. In climate controlled units, as well as traditional units, you can cause damage to your items if air can become trapped. For example, if warm air is trapped between stacks of items, then it can cause mold and mildew. It can also cause dampness and related issues that can damage your seasonal items. For this reason, you should ensure there is plenty of ventilation room between your stacks of items. 

Humidity Removal

You may not be able to use electric based equipment in your storage facility. This can make maintaining your humidity level in the unit over long periods of time difficult. If you find yourself in this situation, consider using dehumidifier pellets. These containers can be placed in corners of the unit or hut depending on your facility setup. The pellets soak up all the humidity in the air and help prevent build up in the unit and within or around your items. 

Ventilated Boxes

Though using cardboard is a common option for packing material and storage units, you should consider other options. Cardboard can become damaged easily, is susceptible to moisture, and can attract bugs such as cockroaches. Instead, consider purchasing storage materials that offer ventilation. You can find storage boxes that are made of humidity resistant material and ventilation vents on the top or side of the boxes. You can add holes to the storage bins you already have to add an additional ventilation option as well. 

If you are ready to upgrade your storage facility or to arrange and maintain your unit properly, contact your area storage facility provider. They can let yo know which options are available to you and if they have any specific tips that may help.
