If you’re like me and have a spacious garage or maybe a storage shed at home, you probably store most of your stuff in there. I can tell you that as long as you’re routinely clean out the place and check it once in a while, there should be no problem storing your gear at those places. But if you’re the type just to leave things be; until the day you need them, or you really need to clean the place out, you might want to keep your more sensitive instruments in a much more safer place.
I had a terrible experience a few years back when I stored my scuba gear in my garage; I was unaware that some pests decided to make the place their new home. While the tanks were fine, I had to get a new hose, as well as a new regulator just to be safe, which cost me money I wouldn’t have had to spend had I just kept it somewhere safer.
The people from Pest Control Company Euless took care of the pests, but the damage has been done. An expensive lesson learned something that you can avoid by either getting your house preventive pest control treatment or properly storing your equipment in a proper and safe place.
