While cooler temps may have the rest of the country preparing to put away their swimsuits and break out the sweaters, Phoenix, AZ is still hot, hot, hot. As summer comes to an end, keep cool and protect your belongings with these tips from Central Self Storage.

Cooling Off in and Near Phoenix AZ

The A/C may be inviting, but don’t let the heat keep you indoors. Treat the family to a staycation at the Arizona Grand Resort. You’ll love getting away from your day-to-day, and the kids will have a great time at the renowned Oasis Water Park. Or splash around in a natural setting with a day of tubing at The Lower Salt River near Mesa. And just a short walk from downtown Tempe, you’ll find Tempe Town Lake. From kayaking and Segway tours to festivals and foot races, there’s always something fun in store here.

Protect Your Belongings with Storage Units

Staying cool and hydrated is essential to your well-being. But you should also consider what the sun and heat can do to your belongings. Works of art, wine collections, electronics, musical instruments, valuable collectibles, business equipment, and a host of other items are vulnerable to damage. Cracks, spoilage, and discoloration are just some of the problems caused by the sun’s rays and high temps. Climate-controlled storage units are the perfect solution for many homeowners, apartment dwellers and business owners in the Phoenix Valley area. They provide a consistent temperature and improved air quality, no matter what the weather brings.

Protect Your Vehicle

Your car, truck, SUV or RV can also suffer damage, especially in the hottest months. The dash and the material on your car seats can become cracked and/or discolored from exposure to the sun’s intense rays. And closing your car’s windows while it sits in the sun can create an oven-like atmosphere that’s difficult to cool. You might even burn your fingers on your car’s metal fixtures or a hot steering wheel. A foam sun shade with reflective outer material offers protection from UV rays and lowers the temperature in your car by up to 50 degrees.

It may be hot this September in Phoenix AZ, but recreational opportunities and a few preventive measures help fight the heat’s negative effects. From storage units and sun shades to area water parks, beat the heat with these hot-weather tips from Central Self Storage.
