More Moisture Problems at H Street Self Storage

Frozen Tropics H Street Self Storage.jpg
I've posted before about moisture problems at H Street Self Storage. Last time it was a leaky roof, and failure to cover the area while making repairs to the roof. This time, the story's a little different, as you can see from this reader's account:

We have had a storage facility at H St Storage for the past 7 years. When I went to my locker last week, I was told that the earthquake on August 23 caused the sprinklers to go off. I didn't notice anything wet, but today when I went back and moved some cardboard boxes there were puddles under them that had soaked through. We called our insurance agent and took pics. We have another crate to go through with a computer and other office equipment in it. A couple of other patrons were there and their stuff had gotten wet, too. We called our insurance agent and took pics.

H Street Storage has never notified its customers and the place has started to smell musty...in a week or so everything is going to be mildewed and beyond repair!!!

There's a perfectly good Public Storage on Bladensburg Road. Really, if you continue to use this place, you've just abount assumed the risk.

Oooh, Human Hair sale at the place next door!

I wish they would "carpet bomb" this place. It's a huge eye sore and now with mold brewing hopefully the building will be condemned.

Anyone know how many lawsuits there are against this place?

Seriously. What is it going to take to drive this shady slum business out of the neighborhood? There's no way that their operation is in compliance with the law. It's one thing after another with this place.

This is the one property on H St that would unambiguously be better as a parking lot. Even Murry's is ostensibly tolerable if you lower your expectations far enough.

This place needs to go!

Some of you call it a storage unit. Some of us call it home.

Sorry for those who lost items in the storage facility, but this could be the best news to hit H St. since the Murry's was bought! Maybe between the lawsuits and cleanup they'll go bankrupt. Even better if they don't have insurance.

Only one Yelp review on this place. I would think with all of the incidents this place would get crushed.

My wife and I were aware of past issues there, but took a chance to store some stuff over last winter. It was fine except there were several times when the freight elevator wasn't working. In the end, it was cheap-ish and convenient, so I guess we made out okay.

A storage facility should be built to last. The presence of leak and moisture, which we know damages things like paper, wood, and the like, wouldn’t make a good impression, and isn’t good service for clients. If H Street plans to stay in business longer, they should immediate take actions to resolve these.
