We had a flood 2 weeks ago and my records are in storage,they will be there for at least a few more weeks,I`m wondering how safe it is for my records.
Thanks

I would not worry about cold. Extreme heat and moisture are worse.

Well, if there was a flood, then one would think moisture would be a potential problem. Not so much for the records, but the sleeves.

I lost a load of irreplaceable sleeves when an air-con unit decided to drop its condensate all over them. The records are fine, the sleeves a write-off Crying or Very sad .

Fortunately never got any records wet,they were on shelves off the floor,none got wet.Some cd`s got wet so they were chucked,salved some of them as well.
Thanks for your input Dave & Graeme it puts my mind at ease.
