Whether you are a collector of fine art or you’ve inherited art from loved ones, great artwork is something to be treasured and cherished, even if it’s not on display in your home. If you plan to store your artwork in your self-storage unit, it’s highly recommended that you rent a climate-controlled unit, especially if you plan on storing some valuable pieces.

A climate-controlled unit can help protect your belongings from damage due to temperature change, which can lead to a buildup of moisture in the air. Even if you do your best to wrap up and protect your artwork before storing it in a non-climate-controlled unit, there is still the risk of moisture ruining the artwork. Instead, it’s best to invest in a climate-controlled unit to ensure your art is protected.


While we may be living in the digital age, it’s not uncommon for people to have old photographs that they want to keep for many years. As you’re packing up your belongings to put into storage, you may think that storing your photographs in a plastic bin or even in a photo album will help keep them safe, but moisture and dust has a way of seeping into the most concealed places. If the photographs you’re looking to store have sentimental value, and you would be devastated if they were to get ruined, it’s a good plan to invest in a climate-controlled storage unit. A climate-controlled unit will keep the temperature constant, reducing the risk of moisture and even dust that can occur thanks to the unpredictable Colorado weather.
