4 Tips for sanitizing things when you are moving

If you are planning to move during the pandemic, it is likely that you have several concerns regarding the entire process. From packing and loading your boxes full of household items to transporting them to your new place, and then unpacking again. There is a lot one needs to consider.

But, worry not as we are here to help you come up with a plan that will keep your family safe and healthy. Some of the tips that you need to know about cleaning and sanitizing when moving during the COVID-19 pandemic are:

Don’t forget to clean before you unpack and pack

At first, this may seem obvious, however, when you start to move items into your new home do a thorough cleaning. We know that COVID-19 is commonly transmitted through respiratory droplets when an infected person sneezes or coughs. Although it is still unknown how long the virus can stay on the surfaces. The early research suggests that the virus can live on objects and surfaces for a few hours to days.

Get your rubber gloves, clean the kitchen, bathrooms, and all the high touch surfaces like switches, doorknobs, panes, etc. Doing this, before you bring in your household items will make this process way easier and faster.

Have cleaning supplies ready when planning to move

Due to the pandemic, it is more important than ever to have the right cleaning supplies ready when moving to a new home. Make sure you have all the appropriate home cleaning supplies and materials to clean your home.

Make sure to disinfect high touch surfaces

Once you are done gathering all the necessary cleaning materials, bring them with you to the new home. Clean and sanitize all high touch surfaces in the household first. As per CDC, this includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, tablets, phones, touch screens, remote controls, handles, etc. When you are moving then keep an eye out for boxes, bins, staircase railings, among other things. After you are done moving, we would recommend that you clean and disinfect these surfaces before cleaning the home.

Don’t forget to place hand sanitizer near the door

The CDC recommends using alcohol-based sanitizer with at least 60 per cent alcohol in it. You can place it at the entrance of your house where it will be readily available to movers and your family during moving day. As a daily practice, you should use hand sanitizer at home. For instance, you can put Safekind hand sanitizer at different places in your house such as at the entrance, in the washroom, etc., to make sure that everyone stays clean and germ-free.

Final Note

Wash your hands on a regular basis, conduct a deep clean of the new house and wear a mask during the moving process, all of these are additional ways to avoid catching the virus when you are planning to shift. In addition to that, ask your moving company about any and all precautions they are planning to take while helping you.
