San Diego moving company, Move Central, Inc., knows that packing your soft goods such as towels, blankets, sheets, table cloths and mattresses may seem like an easy task. But what you may not realize is that you need to pay extra attention to keep these items from mold and insects. Today we will show you the tips for packing soft goods and exactly how our professional movers in San Diego do it, so your move won’t seem like such a chore.

Packing Mattresses & Linens

Mold and insects are your biggest worries when packing natural linens. We suggest folding linens, bedding and pillows neatly and then placing them into plastic bags. For added protection from cuts and tears, line a box with paper and pack the bags inside it.

For more difficult items like mattresses, specialty boxes and plastic can be purchased for maximum protection.

Packing Drapes

Drapery and curtains can be folded long-way and pinned to a padded hanger. You can then place them inside a wardrobe box, and they will be free of wrinkles and ready to hang at your new home.

Alternately, you can just iron them, fold them, and place them in plastic bags, treating them the same as your bedding and linens.

Rugs

Vacuum and clean area rugs before rolling them up and putting plastic around them for extra protection. If you’ve had them cleaned professionally, you can leave them rolled up.

Using these practical tips, your soft goods will make it to your new home clean and bug-free.
