Move Your Belongings, Not Bugs

Relocating to another state, or moving locally means packing up all of your belongings, cleaning the space behind you and heading out. Even doing multiple walk throughs to make sure that nothing is left behind, things are still often missed. One thing that you want to make sure you DON’T bring with you is bugs, moths, or other little creatures. Some types of bugs are great at hiding in spaces that you wouldn’t normally think about checking. Our moving company, RE Movers AZ, wants you to know how to prepare for a move when a possible infestation is involved.

Moving is already stressful enough, so be prepared for long distance or local moves that will protect your family, the house you’re leaving, and the home you are moving to. Contact us today for a moving quote and read on to learn more about keeping bugs out of your moving boxes.

Inspect Everything

Knowing where to look for bugs is essential when packing and moving an entire household. Inspecting these spaces and items, such as electronics and furniture in advance will help the process as well as the movers who are packing up your belongings. When hiring professional movers who pack items, they will not look over items before packing them up, so being confident that they are gone before packing is crucial.

  • Clothes and linens can be washed prior to packing and the heat will destroy any bugs making a home there. Keep laundered items separate from clothes that still need to be cleaned. Once clothes have been washed, put them in a sealed container and label them accordingly.
  • Items in the kitchen need to be inspected closely. Keep containers that have been inspected closed tightly to ensure nothing new gets in. Open larger appliances and clean thoroughly before packing up. If there are several utensils stacked on top of each other, separate all items and clean each one separately.
  • Pets can carry fleas. If you suspect your dog or cat of having fleas, take them to the vet for a haircut and treatment before the move.
  • Electronics can also be a hiding place for critters. Using the wand attachment of a vacuum, get as close as possible to any opening to suck out any stowaways.

Unpacking

Do everything you can prior to moving to ensure that you aren’t relocating the bugs as well. Take your time when you are unpacking as well. Carefully inspect items that were placed in boxes for eggs or signs of bugs living in the box. Vacuum closely and wash everything possible.

Our professional movers will do everything possible to ensure a safe and worry-free move. If there is evidence of bugs living in your current home, take the necessary precautions to ensure that they won’t be moving with you. Our local movers will help pack up your belongings, carefully load, and keep you notified throughout the entire move. If you are moving locally and need to place items in storage, we also offer storage units! For professional and reliable local movers, contact RE Movers AZ today.
