Make Your House Spacious

It is getting more expensive by the day to rent and buy bigger homes and apartments. Rent rates seem to be going one way only and that’s up! People are trying to make more space at home by designing them better. But how much of that space do we really use? There is one issue that comes in place between having space and using it and that is storage. How many of us living in apartments have enough space to store things like a cycle or coats and even boxes of stuff filled with last years adventure holiday gear?

Well, a cost effective and convenient solution is a storage facility. Storage facilities prevent the horrors or hoarding at home. Keeping all your unused items at a storage facility makes good sense since you never use these items on daily basis anyways. Finding a reliable self storage in Dubai is the important part. Smart storage facilities in Dubai like The Box are ultra-modern and come with a lot of over and above features like 24 hrs CCTV surveillance, infrared recording to keep all your valuable items safe and secure.

Storage And Maintainence Of Leather Items

Leather jackets and accessories make a great fashion statement. Expensive as they are the style factor makes up for the pricing. And expensive as they come, maintaining them is another story. So you bought a new leather jacket, flaunted it and now your thinking how do I maintain and store it? Conditioning it is one option. Waterproofing a leather coat will prevent moisture stains making it last for decades. Getting your leather coat maintained by a cleaning specialist also helps. But just keeping it in your closet won’t.

Most experts recommend storing leather items in climate controlled units which protects the leather from the excessive heat and humidity in the closet which can lead to drying out of the oils in the leather. Preferably a dark room, because exposing leather to sunlight causes discoloration. Also hang coats and jackets on wide wooden hangers to avoid getting creases. Climate controlled units in a storage facility like The Box in Dubai fit the bill.

Protect Your Old Memories

Photographs capture the emotion, the essence and every aspect of life as we see it. But in the end we have a whole bunch of memories to file and store. You get a bunch of photographs lying down scattered all over the house in different places. But you always feel like treasuring those memories having the whole grand family in them.

The invention of the digital camera made our lives a lot easier. But what about the antique photos which really need to be preserved? As of today many commercial solutions are widely available but according to experts, photographs need to be stored in the dark at a low temperature (not freezing) and with a humidity level fluctuating a little below 40% and nothing above 50%. Also as most people usually do, avoid storing them in a loft or attic as humidity levels in there change according to the seasons which can result in photographs sticking together and obviously loosing print and deteriorating when taken apart. Magnetic sheets leave behind a residue on images and vinyl pages have the potential to give off harmful fumes.

Storing photos in archival materials helps in preventing common damage and the archival corners are a great tool in this regard. Climate controlled units help you to store these precious archives. The Box is a storage facility in Dubai which guarantees you the safety of your priceless belongings. They provide you with storage space in Dubai having climate controlled environment.
