3 Secrets to Preserving Your Family Heirlooms

shiny jewlery

As your family grows, heirlooms are passed down from generation to generation. They can be anything from first edition books to the wedding dress your great, great grandma wore. These items need to be treated very carefully and properly kept in a storage facility.

Storage centers can help keep your valuables well protected and free of any harm. They are gated, locked, and the only people who have access are those who are just as concerned about security as you are. Here are a few secrets to preserving your family heirlooms:                                                                                      

  1. Be sure to place all of your heirlooms in a place devoid of any type of light. It doesn't matter if the light is from the sun or fluorescent light bulbs, as they can both cause discoloring of paper and photographs. Having a closed storage box will help ensure that you avoid all light from entering and damaging your valuables.
  2. Cleanliness is another key factor in preserving your family’s heirlooms.  Make sure to clear out your storage unit of any pebbles, sharp objects, adhesives, and more.  If, for whatever reason, some kind of contaminant gets on your heirloom, then it has nothing but time to slowly sink in to the object and get comfortable.
  3. Heirlooms are very delicate objects that can get damaged very easily if not kept in a place with proper air conditioning. The air should be filtered and kept at a comfortable temperature: not too hot and not too cold. The air should also be free of any humidity; if water gets into contact with some items, then they can get damaged.

Packing Tips that Will Help Ensure that Your Possessions Stay Safe in Storage

Self-storage facilities and mini storage centers provide convenient and secure storage options for your needs. While finding a storage center may be easy, preparing your personal items and property for storage can be a long and tiring process. Don’t risk breaking or scratching your valuables; consider these packing tips to help ensure your possessions stay safe in storage.

Clearly Labeled Boxes

Box up as many things as you can; this will help you stay organized and maximize usable space. This will also help protect your items from dust and grime while in storage. It is important to clearly label all of your boxes; this will make the unpacking process easier and ensure movers handle fragile items with care.

Breakables

Bubble-wrap is your best friend. Mirrors, pictures, glass and chinaware can be easily broken or damaged while in storage. Wrapping your breakables in bubble wrap or soft cushioning will help provide extra protection. If you don’t have bubble-wrap, clothes, towels, and pillows can be used to keep fragile items safe.

Furniture

Storing furniture can minimize the amount of space you have to work with. Consider stacking sectional couches or chairs to increase your storage space. This will also help to keep similar items together. Worried about scratches and scuffs? Consider disassembling. Furniture and upholstery can get dirty or faded sitting in storage; furniture covers or sheets can help keep your items clean and reduce the chance of fading or wear.  Wood furniture can lose its sheen over time; protect your hardwood items by wiping them down with oil or a wood polish before storage.
