Rain, rain, go away, come again another day – preferably when I’m not moving house.

As if there aren’t enough obstacles in your way when it comes to moving home, now you’ve got to deal with the rain. Mud-stained carpets and soggy boxes are horrible to deal with but we have a couple ways of fighting back.

Carpet protector is a roll of transparent material that is placed on floors and stairs to prevent them from being dirtied by the continuous attack of boots coming in and out of the house. This is especially effective during wet weather.

Mattress covers do exactly what it says on the tin. They’re rectangular-shaped which means they lend themselves to other pieces of furniture, namely fabric-covered sofas which require soak up moisture.

Although we try our best to work through the rainy weather, a lot of the time it slows the move down by 30% or, when it becomes torrential downpour, can halt the move altogether. It’s important to be aware of the weather on the day of your move so that you can adequately prepare for it.
