Storage units are the perfect solution for many people; these unique units allow people to keep their belongings in a safe place for as long as they need. However, such units cannot and should not store several items; If you are searching for a unit, you should know the following should not be included among your foods:
Foods and other perishable goods
There are certain food items that can be kept for several years, like canned goods, pasta, certain sauces, etc. However, even if the foods that you want to store are tightly closed, a self-storage unit is not the place for them. Foods and other perishable goods attract bugs, rodents, and even lead to mold and bacteria formation. So, you should never keep food in storage – even if it is sealed and boxed.
Weapons and ammunition
Storage units DO NOT permit the storing of weapons, ammunition, and explosives. Even if you have a registered and legal firearm, the fact that it can harm others means that it does not belong in a storage unit. The same goes for ammunition and explosives that can go off – even in a closed room.
Living people/animals and plants
You should never keep a pet in a small space, as it can lead to death. The same goes for plants that need air and sunshine to grow. Plants can also attract bugs and rodents, so even if they are suitable for small and dark places – you should not put them in a storage unit. Regarding humans, it goes without saying that you should not put people in a self storage unit, but we will say it anyway.
The rule of thumb with this one is no materials that can catch fire. In a close, hot, and confined space – certain materials can begin to overheat and cause a fire that can harm property and people. So, you should never keep hazardous materials in your storage unit – materials such as oil, gasoline, propane, grease, aerosols, paint, and cleaners.
Safely Storing Your Goods
If you are in need of a storage unit, make sure you do not store any of the items listed above. To protect your goods, you should choose a self storage unit that is clean, big enough for your items, secure, and has emergency protocols in place.
