Tips for Storing Electronics
Avoid storing electronics in the basement.
Electronic devices are susceptible to the heat and cold. If you have an unfinished basement, you risk damaging your DVD players, televisions, and other electronics. It’s best to store them in a stable location for maximum protection against extreme temperature damage.
Use an off-site storage unit.
Although you could store your electronics in the garage, a spare room, or a closet, they’ll only take up space in your home. If you’re not using them, they’ll just get in the way and add to the clutter. Investing in an off-site storage unit frees up space and gives you a secure place in which to keep your devices secured away from home.
Pick a storage unit with climate control.
A storage unit with climate control protects your electronics from hot and cold weather damage. Fluctuations in the temperature may lead to warped plastic, and high heat levels could damage internal parts like circuit boards. Climate control maintains the interior temperature and protects your electronics no matter the season.
Cover the electronics with cotton sheets.
Plastic bags and tarps collect moisture, so you should always avoid wrapping valuable electronics in plastic of any kind. Covering your electronics with a cotton sheet keeps the dust off everything without blocking the airflow. Use a standard bed sheet or electronic-specific covers to maintain the airflow and protect everything from dust and debris.
