Self-storage is the process of storing your things in a storage unit or storage area, rather than keeping them in your home. People typically turn to self-storage when they have too much stuff, and there’s no more room at home for it. However, there are a lot of myths out there about what can be stored in a self-storage unit. A lot of people seem to be under the impression that there are strict regulations about what can and can’t be stored in a self-storage unit, and that the storage facilities are subject to regular pest control. Pest control is not just about getting rid of cockroaches and silverfish. It is also about controlling other harmful pests that can cause not only damage to your belongings but also health problems at your home or workplace.

Why are self-storage areas pest-free?
A lot of people are unaware of the fact that self-storage areas are pest-free. This is because they are located in discrete, remote areas. The pests in self-storage areas are a big problem for people running storage facilities. They are always looking for somewhere warm and dry to nest, and if they can get inside, they can wreak havoc on everything from paper products to furniture. Pest inspections are an essential part of our management program and must be carried out at regular intervals because pests can be dangerous, costly, and even deadly.
