Let’s be honest: Nobody thinks about maintaining their metal shelving units. Those things are big, strong, built to last, after all. While all of that is true, giving your metal shelving units some extra care from time to time to increase their lifespan so that you never have to purchase new ones for your space ever again is probably a good idea. Here the best maintenance tips to achieve this:
Bust The Rust
Avoid rust by storing your metal shelving units in dry environments. Keeping them out of wet and moist air (which, mixed together with the iron of the metal, is a recipe for rust) is the best way to do this.
Adjust The Humidity
You can also adjust the air/ humidity levels where your shelves are stored by using gel packets to keep your shelves colder and keeping free-standing water or other liquids away from your shelves.
Make sure bolts and other fasteners are tight and secured. Loose spots are prime real estate for rust to move in.
Give It A Shine
Even your metal shelving units want to look pretty and presentable. You should want them to look that way too. Give them a good polish every once in a while, to keep them in tip top shape!
