There is no better place to store all those items that you don’t use often than your attic. Just like a garage, your attic is a place to fit all your Christmas decorations, old clothes, books, etc. However, you should reconsider what you store in it. There are items you shouldn’t store in your attic. These items may be hazardous, flammable, or prone to being eaten by pests. Therefore, we recommend that you opt for storage NYC, so that your belongings stay safe and well organized.

List of items you shouldn’t store in your attic

While your attic is meant to be a place for storage, there are some items that may end up broken if left unprotected and out of mind. You should revisit your attic on a yearly basis and declutter, reorganize and remove items that should be put up there in the first place. Find out what you should not store in your attic and instead keep in your home or one of the storage facilities Brooklyn has.

Electronic devices and batteries

Electronic devices shouldn’t be kept where temperature changes are frequent. In the average attic, humidity levels are too variable for delicate electronics. These devices are old computers, laptops, phones, etc. They are susceptible to moisture damage. There are also specifics and ways to store batteries. When heated to high temperatures, like the ones you might find in your attic, batteries may lose power and even leak, putting you at risk of chemical burns.

Books, paper, and documents

Dry storage is the best way to keep books, important papers, and documents. Rather than throwing away your old books, consider donating them to your local library. Papers that are valuable enough to keep, such as certificates and diplomas, should not be thrown away somewhere in the attic. Contact U.Santini Moving and Storage Brooklyn to find out what are the best and safest ways to store your valuables.

Cleaning products

Chemicals that can ignite should not be stored in attics. Home fires can be caused by these items. If they spill, they can cause a lot of damage. Plus, you want to keep your cleaning products close, as you are most likely to use them on a daily basis. If you don’t use them that often, better to throw them away than store them incorrectly.

Items you shouldn’t store in your attic: Medicinal drugs and cosmetics

While keeping medicines out of children’s reach may seem like a good idea, doing so can pose an array of problems. Furthermore, some medications may lose their benefits when stored at high temperatures. Also, some medicine can melt in high heat. This also applies to cosmetics. Especially if they are formulated without preservatives. Plus, you don’t want to be pulling the ladders each time you need hand cream.
