How to Pack Children’s Toys for a Moving?

As a parent, you definitely know that toys develop children’s imagination and creativity, help kids better envisage and understand the world. What matters is to understand that Children’s Toys play a very important role in the world of a child and, therefore, should be taken proper care of under any circumstances. Children are rightfully attached to their favourite possession and some toys mean a lot to them.

 

The good news from Secure Moving LTD is that there are some delicate points to help you by packing your Children’s Toys & to boost your energy to have a more powerful drive toward accomplishing the task as good as possible.

  • Letting your kids choose which toys they want to stay out of the boxes during the moving process gives them some degree of control but also defines what toys will be packed away.
  • Pack your kid’s room last if they are small (ages five years and under).
  • Help your kids with packing and it is also a good time to talk about moving and their feeling about leaving friends, school and etc. This will offer them a comfortable feeling to ease the moving and transition process.
  • There’s nothing worse than opening a box in your new home and immediately seeing the dust particles exit the box and float around. Cleaning the toys will prevent this and save you a task after the move.
  • Pack all items in appropriate boxes and have your kids seal the boxes and write their names or let them decorate their boxes.
  • Drain water from squirt guns and put very small toys and accessories in sealable plastic bags to keep them from getting lost.
  • Stuffed animals and other plush toys are easy to pack as they are not breakable and will most certainly survive the relocation intact. it is a good idea to put them in large plastic bags.
  • Place larger toys directly in the box. This includes toy trucks, board games, action figures, and other toys that get a lot of playtime. Once the larger items are in the box, place the small toy bundles into the box, too.
  • Toys these days can be very expensive and delicate. Depending on how fragile the toy is you can use either newspaper or bubble wrap to protect the toy during transit.
  • Finally, use tape to secure the top and bottom of the boxes and label the box appropriately. If the boxes contain fragile toys, makes sure to label the box fragile as well.

Useful notes about Carpet cleaning by Secure Moving LTD

There is a carpet at least in every house. Even in some offices and hotels. It is an essential material which should exist and on the other hand we must not forget its beautiful role in decoration. Imagine a place with a nice soft carpet and few pillows, several favourite books, and a cup of coffee. How a cozy place!

However, these nice beautiful rugs or carpets must be cleaned frequently based on what materials they made of. Follow this Secure Moving LTD article to know more about them.

Carpet materials mostly are made from Wool Fiber, Nylon Fiber, Polyester Fiber and Polypropylene Fiber. 

People Traditionally made them from wool and they were so valuable and expensive. But since the 20th century synthetic fibers such as polypropylene, nylon or polyester are often used, as these fibers are less expensive than wool.

Carpet cleaning is not just for appearance but for removal of stains, dirt and allergens. Clean carpets are more visually pleasing, potentially longer-lasting and probably healthier than poorly maintained carpets.

Mainly there are two types of cleaning method to remove dirt from carpets: Hot water extraction and Dry cleaning.

Hot water soil extraction method (which is professionally known as HWE) uses equipment that sprays heated water and detergent on the carpet and at the same time, the water and detergent is extracted, along with any fester and dissolved dirt. Many carpet manufacturers recommend professional hot water extraction as the most effective carpet cleaning method which also provides a deeper clean. Actual steam could damage man-made carpet fibers and change its characteristics. Woven carpets can shrink but most carpets are not woven. Most of such problems can be avoided by professional experienced cleaners.

Many dry carpet-cleaning systems rely on specialized machines. These systems are mostly “very low moisture” (VLM) systems, relying on dry compounds complemented by application cleaning solutions, and are growing significantly in market share due in part to their very rapid drying time, a significant factor for 24-hour commercial installations.

Some traditional methods of stain removal remain successful and ecological. Caution should be used when treating natural fibers such as wool.

Paint or Wallpaper? An article by Secure Moving LTD

Paint or Wallpaper? Are you a fan of charming wallpapers or you prefer simple walls? Or maybe want some paints on them? Follow this secure moving article and you will definitely get some tips and ideas about it.

WHETHER you choose to cover your walls with paint or wallpaper is a matter of personal taste. Basically, people choose wallpaper when they want to add pattern or texture to a room. 

The walls will fall into one of two categories: 

painted walls, 

or papered walls.

Both paint and wallpaper comes in unlimited varieties and colors. Wallpaper and paint can range in price from the low end to the high end of the cost spectrum. Wallpaper on average is more expensive to buy the rolls, supplies and to have it installed.  Paint on average is cheaper and needs very few supplies, and an amateur can apply it. Notice that inexpensive wallpaper can be purchased and if you do it yourself can cut down on installation costs. Similarly, with paint, higher end faux paint finishes, and textured paint can be expensive especially if it needs to be professionally applied. Also A combination of both isn’t a bad idea. 

Using paint and wallpaper have pros and cons. Factors to consider are ease of application, cost, and versatility to your space.  Whichever you choose your walls will benefit from the addition of paint or wallpaper.

WALLPAPER: PROS: Very lasting and will hold up to wear and rupture of children. CONS: Removing present wallpaper can be a boring and hard task that requires patience and the right tools to be effective.  plucking wallpaper can be done with chemicals or stripping tools, but care must be taken or damage can result to the wall.  Since wallpaper is applied with an adhesive, high wet bathrooms and kitchens may cause wallpaper to peel away from the wall.

 

PAINT: PROS: paint is a good option for areas that need to have an inexpensive and easy application. If you are painting over a damaged wall, prepare imperfections with spackle and let dry 24 hours in advance.  Applying primer paint in advance to painting over darker color paint will make your painting preparation easier. Painting requires considerably less preparation time than wallpaper. CONS: When walls are damaged, scraped or hit, paint can chip and repairing and repainting will be necessary.
