I might be going abroad for a few years. I will rent out my house. If I
store my comics and files in the detached garage will they be ok for a
few years or do they go moldy? IF they might, is there precautions I
can take against damp? TIA
You could try sealing them (with a silica gel sachet) inside one of the
vacuum-packing bags (the sort thats shrinks duvets down to face-flannel
However I don't know if the vacuum lasts for years. I doubt it.
I would advise against leaving *anything* in a rented property that you
ever want to see again.
As far as insurance goes, it's only of use if the items are actually
replaceable. Scanning or high-resolution document photography and
electronic archiving might be an alternative if you can't store them
