There are many reasons why people choose to use self storage. Some are in the middle of a divorce, some getting married, moving across country, a frequent traveler, spring cleaning, a business storing files or brave men and women needing protection for their belongings while they serve overseas. This is the eighth part in a series of tips for the most common self storage items.
Our previous sections focused on furniture, electronics, appliances, files and document, antiques, vehicles and seasonal storage. Today we focus on photographs and old picture storage. Old photos hold memories, sentimental value and history. Most pictures we take today are captured through our phones or digital cameras and can be placed on our computers. Older photos may need some touching up, they also need proper storage to help keep their appearance.
Photograph Storing Tips:
Old photographs, similar to valuable paintings, can be damaged if they have extended time in direct light or are exposed to heat. Humidity and moisture can also cause problems for old photos and permanently damage them. For these reasons it is sensible to consider renting a climate controlled storage unit to protect your old photos from heat, humidity, moisture and potential mildew. Placing your pictures in a box to prevent light from penetrating is also a good idea. Be sure to label your boxes so you know what pictures are in what box.
Protecting and preserving your old photographs is an important part in keeping memories. A self storage unit can aid you in a safe, reliable and affordable way to cherish your past. Whether you need San Jose self storage or New York self storage, SelfStorageFinders.com is sure to have you covered from coast to coast.
