You may often store unused items in a warehouse, or if you have an attic on your roof you will store them there.
For some items such as suitcases, it might not be a problem if they are stored for a long time in the warehouse. However, some other objects, especially those made of natural materials such as wooden tables, can actually be damaged if stored in a closed room such as a warehouse.
Apart from that, what other items should not be stored in the warehouse? Check out the list here!
1. Wooden Furniture
Have an antique table or chair inherited from your parents? You may feel reluctant to put it in the living or family room because it does not match the minimalist home theme.
Do not let the furniture be stored in the warehouse for a long time, the changing temperature and humidity can cause the wood to crack. Better still use it in one corner of the room at home or give it to people in need.
2. Kids Doll
The child is too big so he doesn’t like playing with dolls anymore? You may want to keep it as a memory or just in case your child misses playing it again. However, dolls that are stored are at risk of attracting rats, mites and other pests.
If possible, store it in an airtight box instead of just keeping it in black plastic. Or, give it to another child who needs a toy.
Candles are usually used when the electricity goes out or stored just in case you need ornaments to decorate certain events. Hot temperatures, especially in a shed or attic can make the candles melt.
To prevent the wax from being damaged, store it in a cupboard in a house where the temperature is more stable.
Your old old electronic items such as video players, televisions, cell phones, or even game consoles should not be stored in a warehouse. Changes in temperature can make these electronic items become damp and damage the inside.
Wedding dresses, party dresses, or other clothes that you may rarely (or never) wear should be kept in your wardrobe. This clothing material will usually be easily damp and invite dust and moths.
Clothes still need air so storing in plastic is also not recommended. You can store it in a box and take it out at least once a year to prevent damage.
6. Photo Album
Maybe now you store more photos in digital format, but other photos that have been printed, such as family photo albums or wedding albums, don’t just store them in a warehouse.
Photo sheets will be easily damaged if exposed to heat or humid temperatures. It is best to store it in a cool cupboard and away from direct sunlight.
