Protecting your Flooring on Move Day

Your move day is filled with a lot of running in and out of your new home and you want to make sure to protect your floors from dirt, scuffs, and scratches. 
 
Carpet 
Protect your carpet with carpet mask; this is a material similar to Saran-wrap that puts a layer between the bottom of your shoe and new carpeting. Most moving companies will lay this carpet protection as they prep your new home. If you are moving yourself you can purchase this online or check local stores. Commonly carpet mask will come in rolls as small as 24’’ x 50’ up to 48’’ x 500’ with a range of prices from $9.99 to $99.99. A cheaper alternative if you are moving yourself is using shoe booties. These are cheap paper-like wraps that cover the top and bottom of your shoes. 
 
Wood Flooring
Floor runners are used by moving companies to protect your wood flooring. This will make a path from room to room where traffic throughout the day can travel. As I said before most moving companies will automatically lay this while prepping your new home. If you are moving yourself floor runners can be priced online or at packaging supply stores that may be located around your community. Another cheaper option if you are moving yourself is using old rugs that you make have laying around or in storage. These will help to prevent scratches but you must make sure granolas do not get underneath them. If they do they can scratch your floors because they are not adhered to the wood surface like floor runners.
