Sponsor News: Tips to Preserve Your Collection 09/08/2010
From Collectibles Insurance Services, LLC...
Light -- Store your collection away from direct sunlight.
Humidity -- Keep a good balance, ideally 50% humidity. Too much humidity can cause mold. Too little can cause plastic and cardboard packaging to crack, shrink & become brittle.
Temperature -- Avoid extreme temperature fluctuations that can occur in attics & garages. The ideal temperature for preservation is approximately 64 degrees.
Handling -- Avoid excessive handling as the oily residue on skin can remain on items causing deterioration.
Stillage -- 6 inches (off the floor) is all it takes to keep your collection safe from water damage caused by flooding, especially if stored on the ground floor or basement.
