Often you may have sensitive items to store that need a little special care - that's where heated storage can be helpful. In the Northwest during the winter months, there is a lot of moisture in the air. Some of our facilities provide heated units that have enough heat to take most of the moisture out of the air. We usually heat to about 50° F, which generally prevents moisture and condensation from getting inside the unit.
If you have sensitive musical instruments, furniture with a fine finish, or books and valuable paper items, heated storage might be for you. You may want to rent a heated unit for your most valuable things and a non-heated unit for the more durable items. There are also things you can do when packing to prevent moisture in the air from ruining your valuables. Things such as wrapping book boxes in plastic garbage bags or covering the tops of tables with a blanket and a thin plastic cover sheet, will go a long way in preventing air moisture and condensation from occurring. The safest solution, however, is to secure a heated space. All of our facilities have heated storage as an option and Ballard Mini Storage only has heated units. Ask one of our expert storage management people on site to help you decide if heated storage would be best for your things.
