Tips on Moving During A Pandemic

The next question you have will likely be: what can you do to stay safe when moving during the COVID-19 pandemic? The answer is that there are numerous things you can do to protect yourself and your family and lower the risk of getting coronavirus. Here are some tips our North Texas local movers have compiled for those getting ready for their big move.

Talk With Your Moving Company About Safety

If you are nervous about your upcoming move, don’t be afraid to ask your Dallas moving company about their safety and sanitation protocols. A reputable Dallas moving company will be open about the efforts they are making to protect their customers and keep their employees safe. At Firehouse Movers, we are happy to discuss the COVID-19 precautions and steps we are taking. We want our customers to know what to expect come move-out day.

Wear Face Masks, Gloves, and Other PPE

Just like you should be doing every time you leave your home, wearing face masks and gloves during your move is incredibly important. We kindly ask all our customers to wear face masks when interacting with our movers. Cloth masks, especially ones with filters, are recommended. Latex gloves are also great protection for you and your family. Something you might consider investing in are some plastic face shields which you can wear in addition to your masks.

Disinfect Your Items and New Home

Once you and your items arrive at your new home, sanitize your space as much as possible. Use disinfectant products registered by the Environmental Protection Agency and approved for use against the coronavirus to wipe down surfaces, moving boxes, and furniture. Dinnerware, cooking utensils, and clothes you use often should be cleaned in your dishwasher and washing machine respectively. For items you do not use often, leave them in an empty corner of your home or garage for at least two days before unpacking.
