Any UV system generates ozone, with accelerates decomposition of rubber or many polymers. The attack is worse than the drying of the gasket material. Don't use UV, chlorox ect., to prevent fungal growth.
Most household moisture level is well over 50-60 percent, and fungal is still minimal.
I bought some plastic boxes, like the one you can get at big box store, the orange, grey/blue hardware stores, and the big blue discount grocery super store, so I can organize my gear and external disk drives. I am sort of having second thought of the idea. Coupled up in the sealed boxes, the air gets stale and things can grow inside with little moisture. So, I keep the lid skewed, just to get circulation.
Someone on another thread got a drawer set for gear storage. I think that is a wonderful idea. Keeps dust out, moisture level at comfort range, and cool. Rather inexpensive, to boot.
