Why Climate Control?

Severe hot or cold weather can damage items stored in storage units. Important documentation for your home, personal, or business, computer equipment and electronics, wood or leather furniture, photographs, books, clothing, artwork and other valuable possessions can be destroyed if not properly protected. The climate in the Walla Walla valley tends to frequently fall below freezing temperatures in the winter and into the 90’s and sometimes 100’s during the summer.  With these extreme temperatures, climate-controlled storage units provide the ideal solution for storing your personal or business-related items.

Climate control maintains a steady temperature range between 55 degrees to 80 degrees using central air conditioning and heat.  Maintaining a moderate temperature can help prevent:

  • Warping, cracking and splitting
  • Rust, yellowing and corrosion
  • Mold, mildew and bacteria overgrowth
  • Infestation of wasps, mice, termites and other vermin

A pleasant temperature can make the job much easier.  These units are also located inside of a building so they tend to stay virtually dust free.
