Having adequate storage in your facility is incredibly important in making sure that all of your products stay in the best shape possible. There are many different kinds of storage systems that you can choose from, but you want to be sure that they meet the needs of your specific facility. This can mean anything from the number of commercial shelving units to a system that can move and sort different sized and weighted products.
Depending on what products you are storing, you may need a climate controlled storage system. Mold and mildew are just two examples of unwanted elements that can infiltrate a non-climate controlled storage facility! The best way to ensure that all of your products that are being stored are going to stay in proper condition is to get climate controlled storage. This will also work to save you money because it will decrease the amount of money you will have to spend replacing products or discarding them due to damage. So, what should you know about climate controlled storage?
The ABCs of climate controlled storage
If you are wondering if you need to store your commercial shelving units in climate controlled storage or if that feature isn't necessary for your needs, keep reading! Climate control when it comes to storage acts just like it does in any facility - it decreases the humidity in the air while also preventing items from drying out. In addition to the items you’re storing, climate control can also protect the boxes that they are in. Cardboard is a tricky material to deal with as it can absorb moisture and become a breeding ground for bugs and other unwanted critters. There is nothing worse than going to get something out of storage only to find out that it has been damaged beyond repair. Don't let this happen to you!
Instead of replacing all of your storage materials, you can implement a climate controlled storage system. While the upfront costs are more expensive, it is more beneficial and will save you money in the long run. They will last much longer than investing in plastic bins and they work much more efficiently.
When an environment becomes too hot and humid, mold and mildew can begin to form. And in the greater Omaha area, one that undergoes many weather fluctuations, your products can become bowed and warped. Even if you are only storing fabrics and other soft items in your facility, you will benefit from a climate-controlled environment. Climate control protects your items and keeps them in good condition until picking, packaging and shipping.
