Black vinyl albums are particularly susceptible to moisture damage such as molding in the sound grooves and jackets/album cover. Avoid storing your albums where the relative humidity is higher than 50%. As with temperature, don't allow the relative humidity to fluctuate more than five or ten percent. Your records will last longer if they are stored in an area with stable temperature and humidity.

With that in mind, what are the protective measures for preventing damages to these treasures? Basic cleaning supplies and protective sleeves are a given, but, what about an Eureka Auto Dry Box? In comparison to the amount of time and money invested into an album collection, a proper storage device is only a fraction of that cost. What you are purchasing is not just a storage device, you are purchasing a protective measure for your cherished collection. Please do not hesitate to  with any questions or concerns about how to keep your collection safe from moisture harm.
