If you’ve ever scratched your head and wondered why a climate-controlled storage unit is important, we are here to tell you: it keeps your valuable items protected from the damage that may occur with the irregular rising and falling of temperature.
It’s no secret that extreme temperatures can damage stored items and materials. At Pleasant Grove Self Storage, we ensure our climate-controlled storage spaces keep the temperature from falling below 50°F and rising above 80°F. This maintains the quality of your belongings so that your possessions look as pristine as the day you brought them here.
By eliminating temperature fluctuations, we keep our storage spaces at a consistent temperature year-round. We know that climate-controlled storage spaces may be more expensive than traditional storage units. The added cost is insignificant when it gives you peace of mind knowing your belongings are being preserved in climate-controlled storage.
Our climate-controlled units have great air quality. Our units continuously circulate air, which ensures that the air remains clean. This eliminates the need to “air out” your unit. If you’re storing electronics or documents, air quality is an especially important factor in selecting a storage unit.
Traditional, drive-up storage units work well for short-term storage, patio furniture, or yard items. Climate-controlled spaces should be considered when storing important documents, computers, and really most of the items in your home and office. For a clear idea of which storage is best, we have compiled a list below of items best in both climate-controlled storage and traditional storage.

Items that are not sensitive to temperature changes should be kept in our traditional storage units to protect them from the elements. Our traditional storage units have extra-wide driveways with grade-level entries, making it easy to load and unload large items. All of our storage spaces have individual lighting, insulated ceilings, and fire sprinklers. Our traditional driveway accessible spaces use high-end materials to keep your items in pristine shape.
We offer a variety of storage unit sizes. If you’re not sure what size is best for your items, go to our “What Size Storage Do I Need” to figure out which size is best for your belongings.
