Total Climate Control with Humi-Shield™

Published on 7/30/2018

"Because it’s not just the cold or the heat, it's also the humidity."

Those accustomed to summers in the South are familiar with the sticky, sweltering air of summer, but did you know that humidity levels can change almost 30% over the course of a July day. Greenleaf utilizes Humi-shield technology for Total Climate Control (TCC) offering an unparalleled storage environment with the comfort and benefits of temperature and humidity control in one place.  Independently regulating both humidity and temperature is necessary to reduce the likelihood of mold, mildew, dust mites and corrosion. Some of your most prized items might be susceptible to damage from changes in humidity. The following list of items are best protected in a climate controlled unit:

  1. Wooden furniture-When exposed to too much moisture over time, wood can crack, warp, or rot damaging furniture.

  2. Leather furniture-Moisture can cause discolorations and mildew on pricey leather pieces.

  3. Household appliances-Cracking and rust caused by moisture can permanently damage the electronics and mechanical part of washing machines, dryers, and other appliances.

  4. Collectible items like stamps, comics, coins, etc.-Tarnishing, discoloration, and mildew can destroy these treasured collections.

  5. Musical instruments- Humidity can damage strings and keys as well as the brass components of instruments.

  6. Artwork-Even properly packaged artwork is susceptible to moisture damage and crafting supplies such as sewing machines can be damaged by drastic changes in temperature and humidity.

  7. Clothing- Mold and mildew can easily grow in clothing that isn’t properly stored. Use plastic bins and make sure to put clothing in a climate controlled unit.

  8. Business documents or inventory-Documents can fade, discolor, and dissolve if moisture and humidity levels are not kept constant.

  9. Photos-If temperatures within a unit rise too high, photos stacked together can blend together and deteriorate.

  10. Electronics-Storing your plasma tv in climate controlled storage is a must in order to protect the screen and internal components.

If you're storing any of the items on this list, consider a unit protected by Total Climate Control with Humi-Shield.™
