Never store canned or preserved food in the garage. Many people buy these items in bulk and find it convenient to store their canned food in their garages. But keep in mind that temperature fluctuations can produce harmful bacteria in canned goods. Also, the little critters can easily work their way into cereal boxes and other cardboard packaging.

Some insects thrive and grow in damp environments such as garages and love to feast on starchy substance like glue that binds books. Plan a bookcase anywhere other than garage to keep your books safer for long time.

4-   Wood furniture

Many of us keep our antique and unused furniture pieces in the garage to keep these pieces safe. Temperature and humidity fluctuations wreak havoc on wood, causing its grain to alternately swell and contract. It can cause forever damage to the furniture.

5-   Electronics

Electronics and micro technology items can be dangerous when exposed to temperature extremes. If your garage isn’t temperature-controlled, it can reach temperatures well above that range, causing your electronics to work extra hard, wasting energy and adding costs to your electric bill. It is recommended to store electronics like DVD, TV and stereos in your garage only if these items are free of humidity.
