Protect What Matters Most

This past year has been emotionally taxing and held a lot of changes for the world. With the occurrence of so many polarizing events and with New Years right around the corner, now seems like the perfect time for resolutions and personal reflection.


What Matters Most to You

It’s an essential question that oscillates throughout our lives. More likely than not, though, what matters most to you is that which you feel the strongest compulsion to protect.

The drive to protect that which we revere is a fundamental instinct. It’s possessed not only by humans, but by all species. Often times, this entails protecting and providing for our loved ones, conserving memories or ensuring security.

here are preservall’s protection specialties:


Protect Memories of the “Big Day”

It goes without saying that your wedding day is one of the most important events in your life.

It’s an act of lifetime commitment and the exact moment in which you agree to share the rest of your life with another person. The bond that’s created on your wedding day has effects that perpetually influence future generations, and each and every matrimony truly changes the world.

wedding dress preservationAs we grow old the bond of matrimony is strengthened, but often times the memories themselves fade.

It’s an unavoidable consequence of the aging process!

This is why protecting wedding dresses and passing them down has been a tradition for centuries. Not only does preserving your wedding dress create a physical token of what was hopefully the greatest day of your life, but it provides your children and grandchildren with a memento as well. If you keep your wedding dress in quality condition, it’s possible that your own daughter will exhibit it on her big day as well.

This may very well be the sector that PreservAll takes the most satisfaction in. Knowing that our products play a role in preserving your family’s memories is humbling and that’s why we create the most effective garment protection bags on the market.


Protect Ancestor’s Hard Work

Some of the most valuable family heirlooms are quilts and tapestries. These keepsakes provide the utility of keeping loved ones warm while also embodying a beauty rich enough to make them pieces of art in their own right. Whether their patterns are plain and simple or intricate and complex, quilts are distinctive pieces of history.

quiltThe amount of work required to make quilts and tapestries is truly staggering. This is why families that are lucky enough to have them as heirlooms want to keep them protected. Not only are they physical reminders of a more hands-on time, they’re the stunning result of dedicated craftsmanship.

While the number one way to protect a quilt from degradation is by using it, sometimes this isn’t an option. Long term and short term storage of quilts can result in the occurrence of mold and mildew. Protecting quilts from degradation is perhaps our greatest contribution to the preservation of history, simply because these quilts were made to last. The fact of the matter is that in facing the present day atmosphere, quilts may need a little extra help in order to get by.


Protect a Means of Security

We mentioned earlier that the compulsion to protect something is usually an excellent indicator of how much you value it. When most people think about what they value most, family stands out from all the rest. We go about protecting our families in different ways.

For some individuals, protecting their family entails gun ownership. It’s a divisive topic and a sector that people feel very strongly about on both sides. The idea of having a firearm to protect your family from a malevolent intruder provides some with peace of mind.

Firearms are often passed down from generation to generation. Accompanied with stories ranging from stoic recollections of war to lighthearted hunter’s tales, firearms convey history that owners want to keep intact.

Regardless of the reasons an individual would want to protect their firearms, we offer effective protection for all types of hardware. Whether they’re viewed as a means of protection or as a means of tradition, PreservAll’s commitment to protecting firearms from corrosion is steadfast.


PreservAll Takes Pride in What We Do

We know our customers undergo great measures to protect the things they love and that’s why we’re so honored to aide in the process. It’s also why we have an extensive product line, providing protection for valued keepsakes of all shapes and size.

Whether an object’s value is monetary or sentimental, keeping it safe from degradation is top priority. As outside events shape your worldview and the year comes to a close, take note of the things you treasure most.

Worries of Firearm Storage

Firearm Storage

Firearm storage is a worrisome endeavor for many gun owners. In theory, when you store something it should put your mind at ease – there’s a sense of security to it.

When you get home from your nightly commute, you park the car in the garage. When you’ve finished reading a book, you close it and put it on the shelf. You know these things will be there tomorrow, unharmed.

There’s a myriad of factors that come into play when deciding how to storage something, among them are:

Where am I going to store X?
How long will I need to store X?
Will X be safe in storage?

For us, this is especially true with firearms. Perhaps more so than any other possession, guns inspire a sense of responsibility. Not only because of their immense power but also because of their delicate intricacies.

Storing firearms requires foresight and planning.

HERE ARE THE COMMON WORRIES OF FIREARM STORAGE:

 


Space (or Lack Thereof)

Lack of Space for Firearm Storage
Lack of Space for Firearm Storage

One common complaint you hear amongst hunters and gun collectors is NEVER HAVING ENOUGH SPACE IN THEIR GUN SAFES.

It’s also the reason why seasoned veterans or anyone in the industry will implore you to go bigger rather than smaller when choosing your gun safe- The amount of guns you have will most likely increase, the amount of space you have to store them will not.

A limited amount of space often requires maximum efficiency, and so compartmentalizing your firearms and other accessories is important. Using smaller cases inside gun safes is a common strategy, not only does a case keep everything organized; it protects your firearms too, right?…

Not necessarily.

Using a gun case inside a gun safe actually takes up more space then you need it to. Remember, every inch of space inside your gun safe is precious.

Gun cases can be bulky and take up to 3x the amount of space that the firearms itself would.

Additionally, gun cases could lead to more…

 


Moisture

Moisture Can Occur in a Variety of Ways
Moisture Can Occur in a Variety of Ways

Gun cases can be lined with sheepskin, cardboard or foam – and depending on the other materials they contain, gun cases could actually increase the likelihood that your firearms will be exposed to moisture while in storage.

This is because the materials used in many cases actually attract moisture rather than prevent it.

That’s a major dilemma, when you consider that rust is more than likely the number one reaction you’re trying to avoid on your guns.

Moisture leads to rust on metals and rust on your guns can lead to fail-to-fires as well as other degradations.

The fear of moisture in your gun safe is a valid one, and it’s arguably the most prominent of all firearm storage worries.

Often times, people will use a desiccant such as silica gel packs in their safe in order to counteract moisture. But contrary to popular belief, silica gels draw more moisture into the safe itself, not dispell it.

Moisture, in addition to the type of climate you’re storing your guns in, can lead to…

 


Mildew

Mildew is a Common Worry When Storing Firearms

Mildew is especially common in fireproof and fire-resistant gun safes. Due to the retardant nature of the materials used in fireproof and fire-resistant safes and the lack of light present inside them, the inside of fireproof and fire resistant safes are often times a breeding ground for mold and mildew.

This can have especially negative effects on collectable firearms, antiques or any other firearms with wooden stocks. Non-synthetic firearms, accessories and components stored in a gun safe that contains mold or mildew is a major worry, as organic materials are more apt to degrade.

Climate and humidity play a pivotal role in whether or not your gun safe will begin producing mildew and mold, however, this can be a problem even in dry areas of the globe.
