Does the storage unit protect my belongings from moisture caused by humidity?

Mobile Attic of Columbia SC PODS® of Columbia SC
Yes. At Mobile Attic we have solved the PODS® problem by removing wood from the construction of the storage unit. Knowing that wood naturally absorbs moisture, we have opted for an all aluminum, steel, and fiberglass design. Using materials that are unable to absorb moisture means our portable storage units stay less humid on those hot Columbia, SC days. Unfortunately not. PODS® storage units are built with wood floors and sides. Wood naturally absorbs moisture in the air. This excess moisture mixed with heat creates a hot and humid “green house effect” that can be damaging to your belongings.
