How Does Climate-Controlled Storage Impact Document Longevity?

Running a business comes with its fair share of challenges, and one often overlooked aspect is document storage. Whether it’s financial records, client information, contracts, or invoices, these documents are the backbone of your business operations. So, how can you ensure they are safely stored and preserved? One effective solution is climate-controlled storage. In this article, we explore how climate-controlled record storage impacts document longevity, the unique benefits it provides, and why Corrigan Workplace Solutions should be your go-to choice for secure and efficient document storage services.

What is Climate-Controlled Record Storage?

Climate-controlled record storage is a type of storage solution that maintains a consistent temperature and humidity level within the storage space. This is particularly important for storing sensitive items like paper documents, which can be damaged by fluctuations in temperature and moisture levels. According to The National Information Standards Organization, the specific temperature you should choose for storage depends on how much you’re prepared to spend to make sure your records last a certain amount of time.

Keeping the Environment Stable to Protect Documents

Documents, particularly paper ones, are susceptible to damage due to fluctuating temperature and humidity levels. These factors can cause the paper to shrink, swell, warp, or yellow over time. Moreover, excess humidity can encourage the growth of mold, leading to irreversible damage to your records. This is where climate-controlled storage comes into play. By maintaining a stable environment, these storage units prevent such issues, ensuring the longevity of your documents.
