How to Stay Sanitized While Moving During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Coughing, fever, and difficulty breathing, are just a few of the severe symptoms of COVID-19. While many people are prone to allergies, colds, and cases of the flu during the spring season, the coronavirus has caused a worldwide pandemic. Through all the chaos, All My Sons Moving & Storage is still open and ready to assist you with our relocation services. It’s crucial to stay sanitized while moving during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our dedicated Boise movers offer a few tips to keep you safe and at ease.
Tips for Moving During COVID-19
Regardless of whether you are moving for the first time or a moving expert, relocating during a global pandemic is probably something you have never experienced before. The springtime is a popular season for moving in Boise, but also a common time to catch sudden illnesses. Whether you are moving or staying inside for the remainder of the pandemic, you must educate yourself and stay updated on the latest health and safety guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization. Distance doesn’t mean a thing to our long-distance Boise movers, who take every measure to stay sanitized while moving. Check out their tips below.
1. Social distancing
Social distancing, as defined by the CDC, is “keeping space between yourself and other people outside of your home.” Our Boise moving company is practicing social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19 drastically. Try to avoid crowded areas and groups, and no matter what, make sure you are staying at least six feet apart from others. Moving during COVID-19 is safe when you implement and follow the proper guidelines. We recommend practicing social distancing with your movers and others whether you feel sick or not because, even if you’re asymptomatic, you could be a carrier of the virus and infect others.
2. Disinfect all surfaces
While these products might be scarce, try to purchase any cleaning products you might be able to find. Before and after moving, disinfect all surfaces to kill any bacteria, viruses, germs, and more. If you find yourself unlucky during your cleaning product search, you can create your own disinfecting solution with bleach and water. Disinfect all doorknobs, counters, furniture, and other common areas in your home your movers might touch or occupy.
3. Keep hand sanitizer by the door
The easiest way to stay sanitized while moving to or from Boise is to keep hand sanitizer by the door. When moving during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s very unlikely you will have readily available soap and water at all times. While washing your hands is vital, you can keep hand sanitizer by the door so your movers, family members, and other helpers can properly sterilize with ease. Rule of thumb: choose a hand sanitizer that has at least 60% alcohol to kill any germs and viruses.
