Self Storage St. Petersburg

How to Store Electronics in Your Self Storage Unit in the St. Petersburg, FL, Area

Self Storage St. Petersburg FLSelf storage is a great solution for residents of the St. Petersburg, Florida, area, who need extra space for their belongings. However, it is important to take precaution when storing electronics. Your television, radio, printer, computer and other IT equipment can fall victim to cracking, breakage, rust, or mold if the right precautions aren’t taken to protect them from damage. Thankfully, there are a few simple steps you can take to make sure that your electronics retain the same amount of functionality they had as the day they were  put into self storage. A few of these solutions include:

  • Select a climate-controlled unit. For residents of St. Petersburg, FL, in particular, it is important to choose a self storage unit in a climate-controlled facility that will not experience extreme hot or cold temperature fluctuations. The temperature should be kept between 55-80 degrees, which will prevent cracking and corrosion from damaging your electronics.
  • Back up data. Store data off of your computer in several different locations to ensure that your information is never lost, and make sure to take out any backup devices or CD’S and DVD’s out of the computer drives and players.
  • Cover your equipment. Use cotton sheets or a canvas cover to protect your equipment from dust, and never use plastic since it can trap moisture in and cause the growth of mold and mildew.
  • Store electronics toward the back of the self storage unit for added protection.
