Stair Banister Rails
Handrails and balustrades are also some of the most often damaged points of the home when a house move is underway! Carrying furniture downstairs can be very tricky and one slip or drop can mean it will put a huge dent in your handrail or balustrade. Simple foam handrail protection can be applied and you don’t have to worry about your stair fixings and can concentrate getting that wardrobe around that corner stair landing!
To ensure carpets aren’t damaged while moving or even simply decorating your new home people often use things like dustsheets or old coverings to protect floor but they can cause some serious trip hazards particularly on stairs or when carrying some heavy furniture. Here is a great video of our carpet protection which is a lot more effective, efficient and safe than any traditional dustsheet!
We have a range of protection for hard floors and if you imagine a dropped item denting a lovely timber floor then these can be invaluable. Whether it is our Proplex Plastic sheeting which provides great impact resistance or our Promesh which is interwoven and highly durable there is a covering for every floor.
Door Frames and Doors
As they are almost always at an exit point to a room and large furniture has to be very carefully maneuvered through them, doorways can often be the most susceptible fixings for damage while moving home. Whether it’s the frame and it needs to be protected with a door jamb or the door itself which you can cover with proplex plastic sheeting or even a plastic door sleeve (brilliant for re-painting door frames and avoiding paint getting on the door itself) these fixing are crucial to protect before your heavy furniture gets moved out of a room.
Then there are the walls themselves which whether painted or wall-papered are always at the mercy of being chipped or scratched. This can easily be solved by applying our proplex sheeting up against a wall and securing with low-tack tape or we have a range of screening materials such as polythene which can be draped over a wall for simple protection.
Finally there are exits and entrances. When moving home, help is often needed to be drafted in and with a group of people moving in and out of a house frequently dirt can be brought in very easily and not to mention if it starts raining! Overshoes for your team of helpers or trapmats placed at exits can be a great solution to this preventing any wet and dirty feet traipsing through the house.Next post: 'Open Doors' Project - Opening Uk's Construction Sites
