protecting your space during a moveAs you prepare for your move in Atlanta, you are likely thinking about how to pack your items, making sure you get to your new space in timely manner, and crossing and dotting all the other t’s and i’s that come with a household or residential relocation. But the one thing you may have overlooked is how you are going to make sure your spaces (both the one you are leaving and the one you are moving into) stay safe and unharmed on moving day. All too often, scuffs, nicks, and dirt are left behind once the moving process is complete, adding unwanted costs and stress to your move.

The primary way to protect your space for your move in Atlanta is to install floor, wall, and door protectors. If you are using a moving company, ask the movers what they plan on using to protect your space. Moving companies should take measures to ensure that the floors, walls, and doors stay unharmed, but if not, make sure to lay down your own protectors. Below are a few tips:

  • Floors – Whether you have carpet, linoleum, tile, or hardwood floors, it is essential that you protect your floors on moving day. For carpet, a slightly adhesive floor covering like carpet film will work well and can be purchased at most moving stores. Cutting up cardboard boxes and laying them down is also a great way to protect wood floors.
  • Walls – Attach corrugated cardboard to the walls and secure it with painter’s tape so that you can be sure the tape will not damage the walls. Wrap bath towels and sheets around banisters to protect these surfaces as you move items up and down the stairs.
  • Doors – Use quilted door jamb pads around doorways. Securing corrugated cardboard around doorways is also a great way to protect these areas from nicks and scratches as you move large items in and out.
