Top 3 Avoidable Issues When Renting Storage Container
Whether you own a business, manage a construction site or you’re hosting an event, it’s likely you’ll need extra storage space. Myrtle Beach storage containers for rent offer the safety and space you need for equipment, supplies or important paperwork. Even when rental storage trailers are easy to rent, there are always a few obstacles to overcome to ensure you’re using the self-storage container in the sagest, most effective way.
Elvis Service Company has a number of storage containers for rent. Customize your needs with our 20 or 40-foot storage containers, office storage combo units, or 48 foot semi-trailers and 53 foot semi-trailers. No matter which container best fits your needs, avoid these three common issues with storage containers.
Avoid Moisture In Storage Unit
Similar to when moisture creeps into your home, leaving any item that contains moisture will lead to mildew or mold. The items you store are important, and you don’t want rust to settle onto the equipment or moisture to ruin crucial documents and contracts. Under certain conditions – with a presence of humidity and ideal temperature – mold can begin to grow in just 24 to 48 hours. Spores can colonize in 3 to 12 days, but don’t become visible for 18 to 21 days.
To prevent mold or mildew from destroying your belongings, avoid storing moisture-ridden items likes used appliances, pool items, or fish tanks in the container. You’ll also want to wipe down any equipment or plastic storage bins that come into contact with rain.
