4 Easy Ways To Protect Floors and Carpets When Moving
One of the worst times to move is in winter. With rain, snow and wind, the floor of your home will begin to become filthy quite fast. Here is a short list of ways that you can keep your floors and carpets clean during a move.
- Stop the movers from entering the house as much as possible by initially having them bring everything into the garage. Then, later on when their shoes are cleaned off, have them transfer all the things from the garage into the rest of the house. If there are enough movers on site, then you can have two different sets of movers; One set for taking stuff off the truck and the other for placing the items in the home.
- Another way to protect the carpets and floors during a move is by getting floor protection. There are a couple types of floor protection you can get, one of the most common ones moving companies use are rug runners. They usually have no slip bottoms with vinyl tops. Another type of floor protection. These are thin flexible pieces of wooden material. (A common use for them is on skateboard ramps). Carpet mask is another option but not as effective when heavy furniture is rolled over them.
- If the above options are not usable, you can also use heavy duty paper roll. When you tape it to the floor it can provide some degree of protection, however if you tape it over carpet it’s much more prone to ripped, and it will rip with something is wheeled over it. It’s best to use it on hardwood or vinyl flooring.
- Another option is making the movers wear slip on ‘booties’ over their shoes. This is impractical, as it can make the floor slippery, which can be quite dangerous when carrying heavy objects. It’s also a impractical to have them keep putting them on and taking them off as they will be going in and out frequently.
Most of the time the moving company will provide the best solution for protecting carpets and floors when moving. If you by chance choose a "High Level Movers Ottawa" company that does! In any case, be sure to ask the movers what their plans are to protect the floors of your new home.
