The last thing you'll want is for your belongings to be infested by bugs prior to the move or during the course of the move.

When it comes to protecting your things during a move, odds are that you're thinking mostly of how to pack your things and how to wrap your furniture to avoid physical damage during transport. However, potential damage isn't the only thing you'll want to protect your belongings from when moving in Wellington - you'll also want to protect your things against bugs.

Protecting Against Bugs When Packing

The last thing you'll want is for your belongings to be infested by bugs prior to the move or during the course of the move. If this happens, then you're basically helping bugs spread to your new home. The following are a few tips to help you protect against bugs while moving in Wellington:

  • Be     careful of where you get your boxes - The     best way to ensure that you don't end up using moving boxes that have bugs     in them is to purchase them new.
  • Tape     up your boxes - Carefully tape the corners     and seams of your boxes. This will help keep bugs from finding their way     in.
  • Use     bed and sofa bags - Wrap your upholstered furniture     and bed in bed and sofa bags and make sure that they are tightly sealed.     This will help prevent any bugs from latching on during the move. You can     also use plastic wrapping for larger furniture.
  • Use     sealable space bags - Instead of packing your sheets,     towels, blankets and clothes in cardboard boxes, pack them in sealable     space bags. Not only will they take up less space, it will prevent bugs     from getting in.

Protecting Against Bugs When Unpacking

If any bugs have managed to get into your furniture or household items, then you'll want to make sure that they don't spread throughout your new home when you unpack. The following are a few tips for unpacking that will help prevent the spread of bugs:

  • Clean     your rugs after unrolling them - Unroll     your rugs right away and vacuum them just in case there are bugs present.     If you want to be certain that they are bug-free, get them professionally     cleaned.
  • Remove     plastic wrapping outside - If any of your belongs have     been wrapped in plastic, remove the plastic outdoors if possible. If it's     not possible, seal your plastic wrapping in garbage bags as soon as you     remove it from your belongings.
  • Get     rid of boxes quickly - Once you've unpacked your     boxes, break them down immediately. If you can't remove them right away,     place them on a hard surface and not on your furniture.
