3 Ways to Avoid Damage to Your Home When Moving to Denver


Moving out of your home can be a stressful experience - from organizing to packing, it’s not always an easy experience. Protecting your home from possible scratches, dents, and other damage is key to making your moving experience a little less stressful. As you prepare and begin the process of moving to Denver, there are a couple items to invest before beginning to make sure it goes as smoothly and damage free as possible:

Moving Blankets: These are a cheap and effective way to protect various parts of your house. You can use them to help slide heavy objects across the floor to prevent scratches and dents on your hardwood or tile floors. You can also prevent damage to walls and banisters by securing blankets to them. In addition to preventing harm to the surroundings of both your old and new home, packing blankets will assist in keeping the items in the moving truck from damaging one another. Consider all of these benefits as you weigh the cost of materials.

Flattened X-Large Boxes: Flattening and laying out these large boxes in heavy traffic areas can save your floor during moving time. Use a couple to make a pathway for you and your moving team. Your floor is bound to take a beating from the move, this provides an extra layer of protection to make sure that your house is in the best condition possible for the next occupants. It is a smart idea to have a few boxes that are quick and easy to unpack as you begin to move into your new home. It is important especially with the amount of hardwood floors and historic homes in Denver that you keep unnecessary damage from occurring during a move-in.

Carpet Film Protector: If you have carpets, a carpet film protector is worth the investment. You lay it down on any carpeted area to prevent leaving stained and damaged carpet behind and creates walkways for you and your moving team. Don’t underestimate the possibility of damaging carpet – anyone walking through the street while loading the truck has the potential to accidentally track in grease or oil from parked cars or even track in mud and dirt.
