Dear valued clients,
Our business is continuing to operate as we navigate the current COVID-19 situation, and we are adapting our operations by practicing social distancing, and reiterating the practices of good hygiene, like frequent hand washing, providing hand sanitizer and gloves for the moving crews. We are also offering virtual onsites for current/ future clients during the current situation. We will do our best to keep our current clientele informed of any changes to current/ future moves.

As our client, your safety and health is our #1 priority during this state of emergency. Please consider the following guidelines to prepare for your move with us:

⚠ADVICE FOR CLIENTS REGARDING SETTING UP CONDITIONS FOR A MOVE: • Upon our arrival, please have your residence/ office/ items as ready as possible (cleaned/ sanitized and ventilated in advance) for the removal of your items. • It is recommended that you/ your representatives will keep, at a minimum, 6 feet of distance from our crew. Our crew members will keep, at a minimum, 6 feet of distance or more at the time of service. • You will assure continuous ventilation of the spaces we work in at all times. • Please provide dedicated bathroom(s), equipped with soap and paper towels for our crew members.

⚠LIMITATION OF LIABILITIES OF MOVING COMPANIES AND THEIR RIGHT TO CANCEL WORK (NATIONAL LOCAL MOVES): The Government has stated it is or will be implementing (as yet) measures to combat the spread of the virus. Such measures in place might impact our ability to provide services to you (including but not limited for us having to suspend or cancel in full the services) or the virus otherwise affects our ability to fulfill your relocation. This may place us in a position where we will not be able to accept any ability for any losses that may arise and we limit our liability accordingly. We are keeping the matter under careful review and will ensure that all customers are advised of any developments that may affect fulfillment of contracted services.

As our team at Homegrown Moving Company has been following updates, we are choosing to work with & adhere to the guidelines set forth by health officials and authorities. We want to do our part in mitigating the impact and spread of COVID-19 to the businesses and communities we serve, and we are implementing the following strategies to do so:

We have discussed with our team members what to do in the scenario that anyone is experiencing symptoms or may have been exposed to the virus. We have an understanding among ourselves to be transparent if somebody's not feeling good or may have been exposed. We understand the need to self quarantine for the proper amount of time, if this occurs, to avoid any further spread. In turn, we ask the same from our customers. In the event that you are feeling sick or may have been exposed, we are happy to make arrangements for another move date.

Use of examination gloves: Our teams will wear examination gloves while servicing moves as an additional hygiene measure and self protection. Gloves will be discarded after each move.

Due to the high demand of masks, we are unable to provide them at the moment, but if you would like masks to be provided for your move, please provide them and we can use them.

Our team will also have hand sanitizer, and we ask that they are allowed to use a sink or water source to wash their hands when available. Social distancing: Upon arrival to our customers' homes or offices, team members will follow the protocol of social distancing, allowing 6' between team members and you, our customer. We have always valued the professionalism and respect that accompany an introductory handshake, however during the COVID-19 outbreak, we ask that our customers understand for safety purposes that we will refrain from shaking hands or making physical contact.

Proper ventilation: In move settings when available, we request that our customers open outside doors and/or windows to increase air circulation. All of the above will be effective immediately and remain in place until April 20th, until we can reassess the situation and make further announcements. We strive to continue to practice CDC/ Federal / State/ WHO (World Health Organization) guidelines for health and safety to prevent contagion in our community.

Thank you, Homegrown Moving

Packing silk sheets; how to protect them?

To be fair, some tasks are easier than others but even the easiest ones will ask for your patience and the right approach. So, today we will cover one of those tasks and ensure you do it right. Packing silk sheets is on the menu today. Let’s pack your bedding properly.

Packing silk sheets with the right packing supplies

It is all about the packing materials. If you obtain the right ones you can even have a fun time when packing silk sheets for the relocation. So, run to the nearest hardware store and obtain the following:

You should use higher-quality moving boxes for this situation.

Those are the basic ones you’ll need for most of your packing. Note that you can order everything online if you have no time to go to the store on foot. Also, you can utilize packing services from one of the full service moving companies Denver. Or you can simply purchase everything from the moving company, let them deliver materials, but pack yourself. Your choice entirely.

It looks easy but you must take a serious approach anyway

Yes, packing bedding, pillows, comforters, and other fluffy items is easy. You can bundle everything together in big cardboard moving boxes without thinking too much. Pillows in one box, sheets in another, and you are good to go. Although, if you are relocating expensive furniture with pillows and sheets included, you should take special care. Use a bit better packing materials and covers for this occasion. If you possess extremely valuable pieces, you should invest in those plastic carriers designed for expensive sheets, blankets, beddings, and covers.

How to keep your silk sheets safe?

Before you begin packing silk sheets we must get one idea out of your head. It doesn’t mean you will make this mistake but it can happen to anyone while packing in a hectic moving environment. And that is the moment where you decide on packing silk sheets together with your blankets, linen, pillows, and other clothing. Silk is fragile and it can easily get damaged. This means you must pack it separately in a box dedicated to this situation. Yes, it does seem easier to bundle everything together, but in this case, it can only make it worse. Remember this before you pack your silk sheets with other items.

Packing silk sheets 101

Silk sheets are delicate which means they must be nicely stacked and packed separately. You can buy a few plastic bags for this task. And you should aim for those with a nice surface and round edges. Avoid tarps and harder materials that can tear and pull a thread out of your silken sheets. You can use garbage bags when moving and packing sheets as well. So, the process is simple. Fold your sheets, place them in a bag, close the bag with a zipper or tape, and place them inside a box. Before you do this, place a few towels or something similar at the bottom of each box to make a nice cushion. Once your precious sheets are nicely tucked in, close the box and label it with the content inside. Repeat this process for each box and you’ll be done within minutes.

Now you are ready for packing silk sheets and other delicate materials. It is a simple process but it requires a delicate touch. Stay focused while doing this and it won’t take too much of your precious time or hire reliable residential movers Denver and let them deal with it. Good luck and have a safe one.
