When it’s time to unpack the valuables you stored during the summer, obviously you wish you could find them in the same conditions as you saw them the last time! If not properly packed, your items can be heavily damaged by the presence of damp, mould and mildew.
To avoid this kind of inconvenience caused by the humidity in the air, it is advisable to store valuable goods with silica gel. Dryguard includes two 500g-silica gel bags packed individually, with a large heavy-duty polybag and two cable ties. A humidity indicator card placed inside the bag will also allow you to visually monitor the humidity conditions inside the plastic bag. The size of the desiccant bag depends on the type of the object that has to be preserved. Also the ambient conditions, in particular the humidity level. So you can choose to use one or both silica gel bags.
It is extremely important that the bag is properly sealed in order to allow the desiccant bag to adsorb the moisture and preserve the goods. To enhance storage conditions, Brownell recommends cleaning the items prior to storage.
Dryguard is designed for long-term storage of valuables of large size or in large quantities, such as foldable bikes, king-size duvets, towels, cushions, clothes, winter coats, sleeping bags, baby car seats and baby accessories in general, including clothing.
By being prudent, you will prolong the life of your equipment.
