Mild steel is a material which is universally used, especially in developing countries for several engineering applications. This research investigated the effect of the environment on the mechanical properties of mild steel. It was discovered that the environment were the mild steel is kept before and after engineering applications has a role to play in the final mechanical properties of the material. It was observed that for applications that requires strength, the material should be left in an Air conditioned environment for a period of time before usage as this will give the material the best result for strength. It gave about 171.55571MPa while for hardness; Air conditioned environment had the highest hardness value of 59.333 while outside environment had the least hardness value.
