Storage containers are primarily used for items that need storage, although they can be used as homes and business spaces as well.  These containers come in different sizes and materials depending on what the client needs.  Most of these storage containers are used to store items, but they are also used as a means of transportation.  Companies use them to transport items from one spot to the next, which can be done by land, air, or sea.  Since they are exposed to many different conditions, it’s important that they are prepped with the right products to protect the items inside.

 

If the items aren’t taken care of, their quality may pay the price.  One of the biggest threats against them is moisture.  This is because moisture can not only ruin the texture of the products, but also cause mold to grow.  When this happens, the products will be ruined, causing the business a lot of money.

 

All things considered, anything packed inside of a storage container should be protected against moisture.  There are two products that we recommend using: moisture barrier bags and desiccant bagsMoisture barrier bags are made from multiple layers of plastic and aluminum to control moisture vapor leakage.  These bags are great for small, valuable items.  Desiccant packs are an even better option, as storage containers usually have a lot of space and items to protect.  Desiccant bags work by controlling moisture exposure and preventing rust, mold, and mildew.  At Edco, we have desiccant packs in sizes ranging from ⅙ unit to 80 units.

 

Since storage containers are exposed to many different weather conditions, it’s important to keep the products inside safe.  By using moisture barrier bags and desiccant bags, you won’t have to worry about the humidity damaging your products.  For more information about these products, call us at Edco Supply Corporation.
