How to Protect Your Home’s Floors, Walls, and Doors When Moving

When it comes to moving into a new home, you want to leave your old house in the same condition in was in when you moved in. While it is likely your landlord or new owners already performed an inspection, it’s important to be aware of your home’s most sensitive areas: its floors, walls, and doors.

Save yourself from costly damage by following these tips for protecting your home on moving day:


From heavy foot traffic to dragging in dirt, floors are highly sensitive areas of the home that are prone to damage on moving day. Whether you have tile, wood, or carpet flooring, we recommend that you take the right measures to protect them.
One of the best ways to prevent scratches and scuff marks is to use a flat surface to cover your floors. Not only does this prevent scrapes and cracks, but it also provides a level of protection from heavy foot traffic when moving. Flat cardboard boxes are an affordable option because they are easily accessible and offer additional cushioning to protect tile or hardwood floors. For carpeted flooring, try plastic sheeting.


Walls are a sensitive spot you’ll want to keep an eye on. For areas of the home you’ll be moving past frequently, like a narrow hallway, cover the walls by hanging drop cloths to prevent scraping, dirt, and cracks.

In this case, it is best to hire professional movers to haul your moving boxes and heavy furniture. Professional movers have the experience and training necessary for a scratch-free move, so you don’t have to tackle it alone. A reliable moving company will work with you to understand the unique dimensions of your home and craft a detailed plan of action before moving day.


Prevent nicks, scrapes, and breakage to your doorways by covering them with bubble wrap. This simple trick provides an added level of protection, and if done correctly, there should be no damage when removed.
