6 Tips to Protect Your Floors During Your Move
Are you relocating your home or business? Whether you plan to do it yourself or hire a professional moving company, make sure there is adequate protection for your floors. Here are some of our top suggestions:
Runners for wooden floors
Runners are useful to prevent scratches and dents on the floors. They come on a roll with an adhesive surface on one side and non-slip surface on the other.
If your house is carpeted, a carpet film or mask may be more suitable. The film is a durable, stretchy material that is placed over the carpet to protect it from dirt and other debris. It is also easy to walk on since it has a slip-free surface.
These are placed under the legs of heavy furniture and allow for easy movement. Sliders are available in different shapes and sizes to suit the size of your items.
Plywood and cardboard
Plywood is a relatively cheap and durable material. It provides protection especially if you are using dollies to help move your furniture. You can also flatten cardboard and use in heavy traffic areas to provide additional protection.
Furniture blankets and old rugs
Blankets can be used to cover furniture and the edges of items. Rugs have a cushioning effect against dents and would protect the carpet from dirt and other debris.
Having functional teams can help to minimize the amount of dirt, snow and other particles from getting on your floors. One team could focus on moving items from the rooms to the exit point. Another team could take the items from the exit to the vehicles.
