How to Safely Move Your Household Items During an ‘April Showers’ Move
As the saying goes ‘April showers bring May flowers’, but when it comes to moving, rain is not the ideal condition in which to keep your household items dry. So we want to help you with these tips on ‘How To Safely Move Your Household Items During an ‘April Showers’ Move’!
Check the Forecast
Moving is already a hefty chore, especially if you are choosing to pack and move all your belongings yourself. So taking the extra step to wrap your items in plastic might be added effort that wasn’t required if it is going to be a sunny day. So save yourself the time and effort by checking the forecast before wrapping all your items in plastic.
Wrap It Up
That being said, if there is rain in the forecast, then yes – wrap it up! You can purchase large industrial rolls of saran wrap, which is easy to use and will help keep your items dry while keeping your boxes from falling apart under wet conditions.
Mark Your Items Accordingly
Granted, there are things that wouldn’t get hurt if they did end up getting wet, but for items such as dry kitchen food goods – these should definitely be marked accordingly in order to safeguard against wet ruined food. Or, as an added precaution, any food items that shouldn’t come into contact with moisture should be put into a sealed cooler.
Slippery When Wet
Keep your floors dry and your safety in check by putting towels down on any slippery surfaces. This will keep you from having to clean up a wet mess, and also help protect anyone from accidently slipping.
