Climate Controlled Storage Units

Generally, in the State of Wisconsin, we do not experience the extremely high temperatures and high humidity that southern states do. For that reason, traditional, non-climate controlled storage, is satisfactory for the vast majority of customer’s storage needs. But there are some items that could possibly be affected by even moderate temperatures and humidity conditions. The most common example is art. The second most common item is paper based products like books and photographs. Third, would be wood instrument, for example a violin. These items can absorb moisture out of the air during times of high humidity but do not release that moisture when humidity returns to normal.

We offers a wide variety of climate controlled storage units. If you are in the market for the best climate controlled storage around, then you need to consider Waukesha Storage.
