How to safely store collectables

Collectors, take note! You should safeguard your investment, whether it is a mini-museum of "Star Wars" action figures, "Superman" comics, or vintage baseball cards. Because they are likely fragile, these valuable collections require more attention and care than some of your other belongings. If you can't display them in your home, you'll have to carefully store them. Fortunately, we have a few pointers for keeping your items safe and in good condition until you need them again:

 1. Make use of archival boxes.

When you begin packing your collectibles, make sure you use an archival box. These acid-free storage tools will not harm your delicate items. Archival boxes are available at craft, storage, and some department stores. They are especially important when storing paper items such as cards, books, maps, and photographs.

2. Take out the air and light.

Because air can oxidize collectibles like coins and light can fade color, both elements must be removed when storing. Metal items should be stored in airtight containers and away from windows. Make sure your storage bins are opaque so that no light from the room can pass through.

3. Purchase acid-free tissue.

Use acid-free tissue paper to wrap your collectibles because it will not deteriorate them. This will also help to avoid chips and scratches. Wrap your items in acid-free tissue paper and fill empty space in storage boxes; you don't want your collectibles jostling around when you move the box. Additionally, ensure that your tissue is free of any chemicals.

4. Avoid going into the basement or attic.

Your basement or attic may appear to be the ideal location for storing your collections, but you should reconsider. Mold and mildew can grow in both areas of the house. Leaking can also occur in attics. The temperature and humidity in these rooms are not well controlled. Consider storing your collections in your garage instead. This space is more stable than the other two and is less likely to flood in the same way that a basement might.

5. Store away from the ground.

While a garage is unlikely to flood, there may be some standing water due to snow or rain tracking in. Store your collections on garage shelves to keep them off the ground. This will clear the floor of your garage and keep the boxes away from any liquids you may have tracked inside. You can adjust the height of the shelves on your wall mount storage. If you won't be using the collections for a while, set the shelves high, leaving space below for items you use more frequently.

6. Combine storage tools

As you are aware, you must protect your items from light exposure, which you can accomplish with garage storage. Consider putting a wall-mounted shelf inside a cabinet. You can then close the doors to keep your collections hidden. The shelves allow you to store multiple boxes in the same cabinet.

7. Sort by collection

As you are aware, you must protect your items from light exposure, which you can accomplish with garage storage. Consider putting a wall-mounted shelf inside a cabinet. You can then close the doors to keep your collections hidden. The shelves allow you to store multiple boxes in the same cabinet.
