Moving into a new home is a lot of work, not only do you need to pack all of your stuff, but you will need to get rid of old stuff that you don’t want to bring with you as well.  Needless to say, it’s a long process, and very tiring.  Once you move into your home, however, all of the hard work will definitely be worth it.  To get to this point as fast as possible, it’s important that you make sure that you do every step properly to prevent any setbacks.

 

One of the steps that could go wrong is transporting your belongings from point A to point B.  During this time, there are different things that could happen to your things; for example, if you don’t stack your boxes properly, they may fall or break.  For that reason, it’s recommended that you stack the boxes by size and weight.  Another factor to be cautious of is the environment that you’re in.  If there’s heavy rainfall, or you just live in an area with a lot of humidity, that humidity could badly damage your belongings.

 

So, what can you do to protect your items from humidity?  To do so, you should invest in desiccant packsDesiccant packs are used to absorb moisture, odors, and chemicals.  They are packaged in Kraft Paper or Tyvek and have moisture absorbing beads inside, such as silica gel.  When you really consider what kind of items you’ll be moving from your home, you’ll realize just how important these desiccant bags are.  For example, any of your electric items can be ruined by humidity, including televisions, microwaves, blenders, laptops, automatic cooking appliances, and more.  Additionally, any foods or spices that you bring to your new house may be inedible after transportation if the moisture in the air causes mold to form.

 

These are only a couple of examples, but almost everything that you’re transporting to your new house can benefit from desiccant bags.  At Edco Supply Corporation, we have desiccant packs ranging from 1/6 unit to 80 units.  If you need help deciding how many units of desiccant packs you need for your move, contact our customer service representatives.
