It’s easy to think that all you need during the moving process is boxes or a moving company. However, protecting surfaces, your property and even your walls while moving can help prevent adding unnecessary costs and additional charges.
For floors, we recommend using a heavy duty board product so you don’t scratch them. Try to avoid dragging furniture. If it is a heavy item, add additional protection by placing a drop cloth underneath the piece of furniture.
If your space has carpet, carpet film is a great option to keep mud, dust and other airborne particles from damaging your floor. In addition (no matter the surface type), place a door mat in front of your home to keep tracking to a minimum.
It’s easy for furniture to get dinged up in the moving process. To prevent this and give yourself peace of mind, simply use bubble wrap or drape a canvas drop cloth over it to help prevent scratches and dings. If you have household items or fragile items other than furniture, bubble wrap is a great protector.
Walls can be tough to protect. However, Trimaco offers a heavy duty adhesive surface protector that can be used for vertical surfaces. We recommend testing Trimaco’s Tack Back before use, and never leave the product on a surface for more than 60 days.
In addition to walls, door jambs are also difficult to protect. Be sure to simply slide on a Trimaco door jamb protector to avoid dings and scratches to your jamb.
