Keep Everything Dry
Moisture will ruin all types of paper documents. Before you load your things into the storage unit, make sure that the containers you’re using aren’t wet in any way. Soaked papers can bleed, grow mold, and eventually decay.
Store Documents above Ground
Self Storage Services strives to provide a safe and dry atmosphere for your belongings. As an extra precaution however, it’s not a bad idea to place your document containers on stacks of wooden pallets to raise them above ground level.
Label Everything Clearly
Rummaging through several decades’ worth of material can be extremely frustrating and time-consuming. Make things easier on yourself by clearly labeling every container and file so that you know where to find what you need. Use descriptive words, dates, colors, and more to sort everything out.
Lock Up at All Times
After accessing your individual unit, be sure to lock up before you leave. Self Storage Services provides 24 hour video surveillance, resident managers and fencing and lighting to protect your documents.
Document storage is an excellent idea if you have many papers just laying around the house or office. When the majority of your files aren’t used on a daily basis, what’s the point of letting them take up space? With a storage unit from Self Storage Services, your essential documents will remain safe while your home or place of business stays free of clutter.
