Micro-Spike maintenance?

OK, this weird winter finally comes to an end in a few days (Yeah, I know. Snow in the forecast). I'm start thinking about putting my winter gear away for the next few months. Usually I do a little post season maintenance to make sure everything survived OK and fix/replace the little things before they get big; snowshoes, poles, boots, clothes, etc.

Looking back at my hiking log, I realized I used micro-spikes in all but two of my hikes this season. I've never used them this much as they usually sit in their bag in the bottom of the pack.

I was wondering if anyone has a hint on how to check them for wear and tear and if there's anything I can do to prolong their life. I'll keep storing them in the basement as it's cool and dry and seems to prevent them from getting moldy. Any hints would be appreciated.
