8 Items that Need Climate Controlled Storage in Oakville
Many items need to be protected from extreme temperatures and moisture in order to prevent damage. Extreme heat can cause irreparable damage and warping to your beloved furniture, instruments and much more. If you are planning to store any of the following items, consider storing them at U-Need Storage at one of our climate controlled storage units in Oakville.


  1. Wooden Furniture: If exposed to too much moisture, wood can crack, warp or rot over time. Bed frames, tables, chairs, end tables nightstands and any other wooden furniture should be kept in a climate controlled area
  2. Leather Furniture: Leather is very sensitive to extreme changes of temperature. For these expensive items, it is best to protect them with a climate controlled storage area to prevent exposure to moisture which can discolour the pieces and cause mildew growth.
  3. Household Appliances: Household appliances that you plan to use again upon their removal from the storage unit should all be stored in a climate controlled facility. This includes washers, dryers, dishwashers, ovens, microwaves, etc. It will help to protect electronic and mechanical parts from cracking and rust.
  4. Special Collections: Any extensive collections should be protected from the heat and cold of changing weather. This includes coins, stamps, comics and wine.
  5. Musical Instruments: Instruments are very delicate and should always be handled with care. Moisture and humidity can permanently damage your instruments by warping, snapping the strings or corroding brass instruments.
  6. Artwork: Artwork and art supplies are best kept in a controlled environment. To keep these items at their best they should be stored at temperatures between 70 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit and at about 50% humidity.
  7. Photos: Ensure your memories are persevered by storing your family photos and albums in climate controlled storage in Oakville. High temperatures can cause stacked photos to blend together and deteriorate. Photos are best stored facing away from each other, even in albums.
  8. Electronics: Humidity and high heat can damage many electronics, like TVs, computer or recording equipment. Extended exposure to humidity can cause the same damage as a direct water spill, like rusting of interior parts and breakage of wiring.
