Damage DoneThe Worst of the Elements

Mother nature can really do some damage. And she has plenty of tools at her disposal. Everything from sun, rain, sand, and chemicals combine to wreak havoc on your critical assets. Take a look at the worst of the elements out there, and the damage it can do.

Moisture (Corrosion)
Moisture (Corrosion) Moisture — whether it’s rain, humidity, or condensation — is one of the most destructive and damaging elements when it comes to valuable equipment. Why? One word: Corrosion.
Temperature Extremes
Temperature Extremes High temperatures and low temperatures both have a detrimental effect on equipment. But the the real culprit when it comes to damage is wide temparature swings and extremes.
Chemicals and Pollution
Chemicals and Pollution Pollution exists virtually everywhere, unfortunately, in the form of salts, acids, and other chemicals. And almost without exception, the rate of corrosion accelerates with increased acidity.
Sand and Particulates
Sand and Particulates Sand other particulates are an almost constant intrusion. Anyone who's experienced wind-borne sand and dust can tell you that there's almost no escape from it.
Sun (UV Damage)
Sun (UV Damage) The sun is a constant, unrelenting source of damaging UV rays. And the only way to fight it is t hide from it, and to get your equipment under cover.
Greenhouse Effect
Greenhouse Effect In a trapped space, the effects of any element is amplified greatly. And the rate of corrosion and other damage is accelerated. It's a case of what you can't see, can hurt you.
Mold, Mildew and Other Special Conditions
Mold, Mildew and Other Special Conditions A moist environment is a perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. And once it gets started, it’s tough to stop. The best way to prevent it from growing is to keep dry, cool, and clean.
