Storage Tips For Vinyl
Like many music fans here in Austin, you probably have a collection of albums that you love, but that’s also taking up more room than you have. A storage unit could be just what you need to keep those records safe and create space at home.
At Lone Star Self Storage, we are a storage facility that know how important those albums are to you. Music albums are among the most priceless things people have. So we’ve put together this list of tips to help you keep your vinyl in the best possible condition. So here are some tips that you can use, when choosing a Storage Facility that will store these priceless belongings.
1. Brush away dust
The best way to clean the surface of your vinyl albums is to use an anti-static brush in tandem with a special record-cleaning solution. You can typically find these tools in a record cleaning kit, which you can buy in larger music stores.
2. Store with care
Your albums should be stored in three coverings: a paper inner sleeve, the album cover, and a 3 mm thick plastic outer sleeve. Some experts prefer to place the record behind the album cover instead of inside it to prevent the cover from getting seam splits.
3. Don’t stack
To avoid warping, never stack vinyl records on top of each other or put them at a 45 degree angle. Keep them standing upright at 90 degrees. A 14” x 14” milk crate is an ideal place to store your albums and keep them at the best storage angle.
4. Avoid water and heat
Cleaning your albums with tap water or storing them in a damp environment can damage the vinyl. So can storing them in areas prone to getting – and staying – hot for prolonged periods of time. Be sure to keep your records away from both moisture and extreme heat to prevent melting or warping.
