Protecting your wall when moving is really important since it’s not worth it for the walls to suffer all of the damage. So, in order for you to save them, you have to use some really easy and straightforward methods to keep the paint intact and avoid possible chipping of the actual wall.
If you don’t want to risk it doing it on your own, then you can hire professional movers like the H2H Movers team. They can handle your moving day with ease and pack, unpack, load, unload, and treat your belongings with great care. You can contact them via the H2H Movers website and book your moving date.
However, if you want to do the moving by yourself then we have some simple tips down below for you to follow. Stay tuned!
Cover the Furniture and Walls with Blankets
You can cover your furniture with blankets in cases when your furniture can’t be disabled or you can’t take it apart by yourself. Wrap your furniture with bubble wrap, especially the parts that stick out the most. This will create a cushion to keep everything safe and sound. Blankets are also an option and especially moving blankets or pads can do wonders by providing a soft layer to protect the furniture from dents or scratches. They also protect your wall.
Another way to protect the walls is to cover them with the same pads or drop cloths. You can cover only the sections that will suffer more direct hits. Simply use painter’s tape to secure the cloths or blankets on your walls.
Use a Moving Dolly
Moving dollies are the saviors of professional movers and if you are not planning on using such a service, it’s a good idea to use one for the big furniture items. However, there is one con to them and that is that they can’t go downstairs or upstairs. If that is not the issue, then you can secure your furniture to the dolly and get 2 people to help you navigate it past the walls, so you won’t damage them.
Use Corner Guards or Cover Your Walls with Cardboard
Another way to protect your walls is to cover them with cardboard. The advantage to that is the material itself is very cheap and it has a great level of protection, it’s light to attach to the walls without issues and it can also protect door frames and doors.
You can also use corner guards to protect the wall from scuff marks. Such guards are excellent protection for wall corners. Get them online or from a home improvement store in your area. Installing them is a piece of cake, so it can be done in no time.
Generally, these are all of our small tips on protecting your walls and furniture at the same time. Check out our blog for more helpful content when it comes to moving and contact the H2H Movers team if you need professional help for your moving day.
