Five Important Considerations For Remodeling A Storage Container

Using a container as a shop, office, or a combination of uses, means some kind of modification is probably needed. Rural use, for example, might be to store livestock feeds, some of which need temperature control to maintain freshness. Just about any commercial use for storage containers that Monterey businesses use is going to require shelving, light and ventilation.

Ventilation and temperature control

Sufficient air circulation protects items from condensation, mold and other damage. Container Stop can install fans, windows, doors and power outlets and also has units equipped for refrigeration. Ventilation is important even for temporary use over a few weeks or months. Mildew can start forming within 48 hours. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reports that there is sufficient evidence to link indoor exposure to mildew and molds with respiratory symptoms, asthma and pneumonitis.

Shelves, closets and cabinets

Stacking boxes might work for temporary storage, but not when the stored items need to be frequently accessed. Quick and easy access to inventory and supplies is essential for business and for peace of mind. Whether to use shelves, closets or cabinets can be a personal decision based in the easiest way to access the stored items.

Lighting and power

No one wants to stumble around in the dark with a flashlight trying to find something. Skylights, windows and doors are great for daylight, but what about after dark? If the container is being used as a shop how are the tools going to get power? The experts that deliver storage containers to Monterey can help plan electrical needs.

Floors and walls

Turning a storage container into any imaginable space is one of the reasons they are popular. The bare steel surroundings can be remodeled into anything from serviceable storage or a shop to a designer-inspired extra room. Final decorating touches are up to the owner after the container is delivered but Container Stop can build and install the bones.

Security and safety

Things to consider include protecting the container from break-in and vandalism, secure shelving and cabinets to prevent injury and damage in case of an earthquake, fire safety and emergency exits. Ways to secure doors and windows include lock boxes, cross bars and inner locks and bars over the windows. External lighting is important. Don’t forget an alarm system!
