Moving your bedroom furniture and furniture, in general, can definitely be a hassle. Siesta Sleepworks wants to make sure that your next move goes effortlessly and planned. If professionals are involved or you are moving on your own these tips and tricks will ensure you move your fragile furniture without worrying about potential damage.
Packing Essentials You Need
The first step is to gather your packing supplies. When preparing for a big move it is essential to invest in bubble wrap to protect your fragile items, sofa and mattress cover to keep your furniture clean, plastic stretch wrap, sealable plastic bags for items that are small or could leak, and, corrugated cardboard sheets. Before you begin packing it is important to take the time and clean or dust items, this ensures that you will not bring your furniture into your new home or apartment with leftover grime.
Your next step is to begin dismantling furniture that has knobs, casters, or pulls. The last thing you want during this stressful time is to damage your furniture before moving in. This also provides extra storage space and lightens the heavy furniture for the move. If you still own your owner’s manual make sure to give it a read and ensure you are dismantling your furniture correctly. Then use your sealable plastic bags for loose parts and screws so you don’t lose them. Consider doing this step a day before you move to save time and energy for the big day.
Protecting Your Mattress
To ensure your mattress stays protected and clean throughout the moving process consider purchasing a mattress protector that can be washed and used again. Or use an old sheet to protect it from dust and wear. If you have a box spring it is also important to protect its coils from exposure, to protect the box spring we recommend placing it in an under-the-bed storage bag or covering the coils with quilts and blankets.
Bring A Crew
Before moving reach out to friends and family or hire a moving crew! Moving can be a stressful time but with the right amount of help, it can be an effortless task. Some mattresses can be extremely heavy and it is not safe to lift one alone. If you choose to move without the help of experts make sure to wear protective gear so nobody gets hurt moving a mattress up and down flights of stairs.
