How to Save Your Floors From Damage When Moving [2023]

Your floors are at risk of damage when you are moving. We asked our moving experts for their advice on how to protect your floor when moving.

The following suggestions are great for all types of flooring.

Wrap Furniture with Protective Blankets
Wrap all furniture with protective furniture blankets or bubble wrap. This will help to protect your floors and walls when moving furniture.

We suggest that you measure your furniture and doorways before moving. This will help you to avoid mistakes and floor damage by knowing how everything will fit in your new home.

Use Old Rugs, Heavy Mats, and Blankets
One of the ideal ways to protect your floors when you are moving is to use old rugs, heavy mats, blankets, and towels. Make sure you use items that you can toss out after because they’ll get dirty no matter what season.

Disposable Shoe Booties
Another great way to protect flooring when you’re moving is using disposable shoe booties. They will help to minimize the dirt and dust in your home. The best part is that everyone will get to keep their shoes on.

Use Rubber Wheels
Dollies with rubber wheels are a great way to move heavier items safely. Make sure the dolly has soft rubber wheels before you rent, borrow, or buy. This will help to save your floors from serious damages.

Floor Sliders
You can pick up floor sliders at your favorite hardware store. Floor sliders go on the legs or stick on to the bottom of your furniture. You will be able to slide heavy furniture across smooth surfaces by damaging your floor.
