Top 5 Home Relocation Safety Tips
There are a few things that you must keep in mind if you are planning to shift to a new house. They are:
1. Prioritize Health And Enquire
It is very important to consider your health factor first because it can be a really tiring task even if packers’ movers Delhi take care of everything. Make sure you spend a good time searching for the best movers and packers in Delhi because the pandemic and changed everything around us and we need to be extra cautious about everything.
Don’t think twice before calling them and asking about their sanitization process and precautions taken by their team. Ask them if their team would be equipped with masks, boots, gloves and kits during the shifting process and how many people are going to be there.
It is always better to seek clarity and being cautious already rather than regretting later if something happens.
2. Meet The Representative Virtually
When you are done with your research work and finally taken a call on packers movers Delhi, it is very important to meet them over a video call or something and give them a house tour so that they know how to go about it and what to keep in mind while deciding upon the size of boxes or size of the transport that will be required to shift. It not only adheres to the social distancing norms but it also saves time and cost. Customer enquiries about virtual visits have also grown in the recent past as it reduces physical contact and the risk of the spread of the virus.
3. Discard What Is Not Required
Before you start with packing, make sure to separate a pile of things that you won’t need in the new house. This will not only save you from packing the unnecessary things but help you get more organized as well.
Go through your things and categorize them in different labels and see what can be discarded, sold or donated.
Don’t wait until the last to select what to pack and what to get rid of. Instead, plan at least two to three weeks in advance and pick a few hours a day to attend to a different room or cupboard in your home. By working in smaller sections, you won’t be tempted to just throw it all in boxes and be done with it quickly.
Also, check for the expiry date before you pack anything. Let’s say you have had some spice jar for a while then just open it and smell the contents to see if you need it or not. If you don’t get a strong whiff of the spice then the jar can be discarded. Your cosmetics such as mascara and concealer expire after a year or so. While it won’t harm you to use old makeup, this is a good time to throw away products you haven’t worn in years and will not use in the future too.
4. Be Extra Cautious With The Boxes
It is best to ask your packers and movers to pack everything in small boxes as per the category so that you don’t get confused at the new place.
As we all know that the coronavirus can live on exteriors like cardboard, therefore, this won’t be an apt time to tighten your belt on boxes. You can use boxes you have on hand but if you want the company to use them then make sure you sanitize them properly otherwise the packers and movers do come with their own equipment and storage stuff.
Also, ensure that the packers and movers use disinfectant wipes to clean surfaces of furniture, boxes, and other items before loading. This will significantly reduce the risk of carrying germs to your new home.
5. Disinfect And Clean Your New House
Once you move into a new place, make sure you spray the disinfectant in every nook and corner of the house before setting up the furniture and other items. It is so because the person or people who lived there before you, no matter how benevolent, unsurprisingly left behind some dirt and dust that you’ll want to take care of before you really settle in. Unless you’ve just moved in to brand newly constructed house, that blank canvas isn’t quite as blank as it might appear to be. Apart from cleaning and disinfecting your furniture and other belongings, carefully dispose of all the packing materials in an isolated area to avoid any human contact.
You might know this or not but dust isn’t relegated to floors and counter tops. Ceiling fans, overhead lighting fixtures and other features close to the ceiling are just as prone to getting dirty, but they don’t get scrubbed frequently and tend to scatter dirt and dust onto the space below them when they finally do get a brush down. Since cleaning these features will unavoidably lead to the area below them getting a little bit grimy too, start at the top in each room and then clean the down area.
No matter how overwhelming it can get moving to a new house, you must always keep the above tips in mind to save yourself from exposure to any sorts of hazards and health threats. We prioritize your safety and take all the necessary precautions as well so that you don’t have to worry about anything. Get in touch with packers movers Delhi to get a quote!
