For the things that matter most, choose one of our climate-controlled self-storage units
Peace of Mind
Some things can be damaged by heat, humidity and cold. A climate-controlled unit may help keep your stuff within a set temperature or humidity range, so you can rest easy!
Need to stop by your storage unit on a regular basis? A climate-controlled unit may make sure your visit is comfortable in either hot or cold weather, year-round.
Photos and Film
High heat and humidity can cause photos to curl, fade and degrade rapidly. Climate control may keep your photos looking good for generations.
Cameras, Lenses and Electronics
Moisture and condensation are the enemies when it comes to photo gear and electronics. Camera bodies can corrode and lenses can be destroyed by humidity-loving fungi.
Some wines improve with age, but only under controlled conditions. Temperature swings and heat accelerate the wine's aging process, leaving it sharp, acidic and vinegary.
Warm, humid air can cause wood to swell and warp. Dry, cold winter air can make it shrink and crack. Neither extreme is good for wood furniture.
Leather, Fabrics and Upholstery
Mold and mildew thrive in warm, humid air. If either infest fabric, it can result in permanent damage. If you're storing furniture in a humid part of the country, a climate-controlled storage unit may be worth considering.
Record Albums and Magnetic Media
Heat can melt an LP record very easily, leaving it warped and unplayable. Magnetic media — such as cassettes, reel-to-reel tapes, computer disks and hard drives — are sensitive to humidity and condensation.
Stringed instruments can warp and their glued joints can fail. Bacteria, mold and mildew can grow in brasses and woodwinds. Pianos can suffer all these effects. If you're storing a musical instrument, go with a climate-controlled space.

Why Public Storage
There's no charge to reserve a space and no obligation. You can cancel if your plans change at any time.
You can access your space from 6:00 AM to 9:00 PM at most locations.
No Long-Term Commitment
You pay month-to-month, so you're never locked in.
Getting the Most From Climate-Controlled Storage
Leave Room for Air Movement
If you're storing valuable items, leave space for air to move between boxes and furniture. It reduces the chances of mold or mildew invading your things.
Invest in Silica Packets
Those little packets that say "Do Not Eat" are your best friends when it comes to preventing moisture damage. You can buy them in various sizes, from little packets to large, vented boxes designed for camera and electronics cases.
Elevate Things off the Floor
Cardboard boxes will soak up any moisture they can find, even the dew that condenses on concrete floors in humid environments. Use wire shelving, 4-by-4-inch lumber or other strong supports to store everything at above-floor level.
Pack Like a Preservationist
There is a lot of science to preserving the things you care about. Reading up on preservation techniques can help you maximize the life of your possessions.
