We all face times where we feel like we are running out of available storage space. We’ve packed the attic, basement, closets and every nook and cranny we can find, but there is never enough room for everything. Unfortunately, on top of limited storage space options, there are also a few items you might be storing that don’t belong in the space you’ve put them. Before you decide you don’t have any space, check to see if you have anything that shouldn’t be in your attic or basement.
Because there is always the risk of flooding in your basement, house fire and excess heat or cold in your attic, it’s important that you don’t keep your important documents, like birth certificates or marriage licenses, in these spaces. They need to be protected. If important papers must be filed in the basement, put them into plastic containers up on a shelf, although a free-standing safe or enclosed in a closet is a much better option.
Textiles can be negatively affected by the environment they are stored in. Pollution, moisture, insects and improper storage can easily and irreparably ruin your most delicate fabrics in no time at all. It’s important to remember that these items should remain in a climate-controlled environment during the entire time that they are being stored.
In today’s digital age, printing photos may not be as popular as it was in the past. But for people who keep photo albums, it’s important to make sure they are properly stored, as they can be ruined by water or changes in temperature. Consider taking items that don’t belong in the basement or attic to a climate-controlled storage unit to keep them protected all year long.
