You may often store unused items in the warehouse, or if having an attic on the roof of your house will keep it in place.
For some items such as a suitcase it may not matter if it is stored long in the warehouse. But some other objects, especially those made from natural materials such as wooden tables, can actually be damaged when stored in a closed room such as a warehouse.
Besides, what else should not be stored in the warehouse?
1. Wooden Furniture
Have an antique desk or chair inherited from parents? You may feel reluctant to put it in the living room or family because it does not fit the minimalist home theme.
Do not let the furniture is stored long in the warehouse, the temperature and humidity of the changing air can make the wood becomes cracked. Better still use in one corner of the room at home or give to people in need.
2. Children Dolls
Children are too big to be happy to play dolls? You may still keep it as memory or just in case your child misses playing it again. However, the stored dolls are at risk for inviting mice, mites and other pest attacks.
Where possible, store in airtight boxes rather than just stored in black plastic. Or, give to other children who need toys.
Candles are commonly used when power goes out or stored in case you need ornaments to decorate a particular event. Hot temperatures, especially in a shed or attic, can make the candles melt.
In order to wax is not damaged, store in cabinets in the house that get a more stable temperature.
4. Electronic Goods
Your old electronic things like video players, televisions, cell phones, or even console games should not be stored in the warehouse. Temperature changes can make the electronic goods become damp and damaging the inside.
Wedding dresses, party clothes, or other outfits that you may rarely (or never) wear should be kept in the closet. This clothing material will usually easily damp and invite dust and ngegat.
Clothes still require air so storing in plastic is also not recommended. You can save in the box and remove it at least once a year to prevent damage.
6. Photo Album
Perhaps you currently store more photos in digital format, but other printed photos such as family photo albums or wedding albums should not just be stored in the warehouse.
The photo sheets will be easily damaged if exposed to humid heat or temperature. Should keep in a cool cabinet and protected from direct sunlight.
