Self Storage FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is self storage? 

Self Storage companies rent space for customers to store their extra things. In the past, self storage meant roll-up garage door units full of bugs and mold. Today, many companies offer pristine units within constantly climate controlled buildings. This keeps your things clean and dry.

  • Do I really need climate controlled storage? 

People put items in storage they want to save but just don't have the space to keep at their home or office. You should find a storage facility that uses state-of-the-art equipment to keep the temperature between 66-76 degrees (depending on the time of year) and the humidity around 50%. By controlling the climate, your belongings will be protected from extreme temperatures and mold-causing moisture.

  • What temperature should self storage buildings be kept? 

Self storage facilities should maintain a consistent summer temperature of 72-76 degrees, and a winter temperature of 66-70 degrees. Humidity should be maintained at 40-50%. This is the standard for climate controlled storage buildings.
