Everything ends up at our house! And then we hold onto these things as if they were part of us. We may keep them because of the emotional attachment we have (or had) to the people that gave them to us, but the truth is that in practical terms we probably won’t be getting married in mom’s wedding dress or making hems with grandma’s sewing machine any time soon.
We need the space that these things occupy in our house, these things that we want to keep. But some might worry that if we put these things away in a storage space, they´ll be damaged.
At Kuboo, we understand your concerns and we guarantee that these concerns will quickly disappear.
The first step in making sure that your items will not be damaged is always maintaining them in a clean storage unit. This is how we hand your unit over to you, a unit which is part of a larger storage facility that holds the same high standards of cleanliness: at Kuboo not one stain is ever overlooked; we clean our facility daily, from top to bottom.
In choosing the location and materials of construction for Kuboo, a determining factor was how the space would influence the temperature, the humidity and the environment of our facility.
The walls at Kuboo are 60cm thick and made of cement. This way, much like the humidity, the temperature is regulated naturally so that sensitive objects in our units will not become damaged. Here are some examples:
- Clothes and fabrics: humidity can affect the colour and the shape of your clothes and your fabrics.
- Vinyl records: humidity can warp your records. Documents and papers: humidity can blot out information written on documents and papers.
- Wooden objects/wooden furniture: humidity or excessive heat can change the form of an object/ furniture making the wood crack or rot.
- Electronic equipment: humidity and the sudden changes in temperature can damage the internal hardware of electronic equipment.
