Protect Your Temperature-Sensitive Items


  • Electronic devices suffer from temperature extremes
  • Extreme temperatures can shorten a battery’s life or make it die completely
  • Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs) can freeze, ruining the device
  • Extreme cold or hot temperatures causes the metal in a hard drive to contract or expand, triggering warping and misalignment
  • A 5° F increase in temperature decreases your hard drive life by 2 years
  • High temperatures can fry the processor of a laptop or other gadget

Paper & Important Documents

  • Paper and digital records of any kind are highly susceptible to weather change.
  • Water from condensation in cold temperatures can ruin paper and books
  • Precious photographs and heirlooms stored at inconsistent temperatures tend to fade or become brittle and crack
  • Vinyl, VHS, cassettes, and CDs need protection from extreme heat and cold to prevent fading and warping
  • Books and journals can bleed and bend in hot temperatures
  • Valuable paintings can crack in the cold
  • Even if they are kept within plastic bins or safes, warping and discoloration can still occur

Musical Instruments & Furniture

  • Avoid temperature extremes to protect against weather-related damage
  • Cold temperatures cause wood to shrink, potentially cracking wood and finishes
  • Head and cold variations can affect the sound of an instrument
  • Paint or vinyl on metal can crack and flake over time due to expansion and shrinkage

Clothing & Blankets

  • Extreme temperatures can speed the decay of textiles, including wedding and other special-occasion dresses
  • Leather and lace are particularly vulnerable to extremes
  • Textiles should never be kept in airtight boxes or plastic bags as plastic can hold moisture that condenses in cold weather
  • Cover textiles in mylar, acid-free tissues, pure muslin, or pure white cotton sheets and store in wooden boxes in a clean, dark, cool, and reasonably dry place to avoid yellowing or darkening of fabric
