Moving can be a dangerous business. Moving heavy items, long hours, and a lot of movement. These are some tips to help you stay safe during and after a pandemic.
Do not lift heavy items yourself – seriously!
Do you have a heavy dresser you feel you and your partner could lift together if you tried? Calm down and call the pros. It is possible to injure yourself or cause damage to your furniture if you lift it too high.
Moving can be a difficult task! You will likely be moving all day, packing, and unpacking. It is important to ensure you have enough water, and that you drink it. It will be a great idea to bring a cooler with you or to fill up a few water bottles.
Layers are good for layering and keeping you warm. Avoid baggy clothes and cover as much as you can.
Clear the Path
Be sure to clear all foot-trafficked areas of clutter. It is not something you want to see happen.
Always have a basic first-aid kit
You should have some first aid supplies on hand in case of an emergency before you leave. You never know when you will need band-aids or antiseptic, antibiotic ointment, ibuprofen.
Don’t Overpack Your Boxes
It doesn’t matter if you can, but it does not mean that you should. Be sure to keep your boxes balanced. The things you don’t want your box to fall during a move.
Reducing Foot Traffic
You can save money by having movers come to you to inspect your home before you move.
Ask your moving company if they offer “Livestream moving”. This allows you to monitor the move from the comfort of your home.
Ventilate Ventilate Ventilate
Although you cannot eliminate all risks from moving during a pandemic outbreak, it is possible to reduce it. The CDC suggests that people move in and out of indoor areas during a pandemic to improve airflow and ventilation. This means opening doors and windows, positioning fans to circulate fresh, clean air, and using portable high-efficiency particulate (HEPA) fan/filtration system to improve air cleaning.
