Moving During The Summer Heat

Staying safe during summer movesSummer is a great time to move. Unlike moving in the winter, you don’t have to worry about snow or slipping on ice and you can enjoy the warm weather on the way to your new home. However, moving during the summer does come with its own risks. High temperatures increase the risk of dehydration, hyponatremia, heat exhaustion, and heatstroke.

Overall, it is important to stay safe while moving during the summer. Here are some tips to help you stay safe from heat-related illnesses during your summer move in the hot weather!

Tips To Keep You Safe During Your Summer Move

Dehydration

The most common ailment caused in hot weather is dehydration. Dehydration occurs when you lose more fluids than you take in. On a hot day, it is important to drink adequate amounts of water because you are losing fluids through sweat. To avoid feeling confused, tired, or thirsty, drink between 2 to 3 liters of water throughout the day. 

Hyponatremia

Hyponatremia, also known as water intoxication, is when you drink too much water in relation to solutes in your body in a short time interval. Then, your kidneys fail to excrete the water from the body causing symptoms of nausea, lethargy, fatigue, and confusion. To avoid experiencing hyponatremia, you should drink water consistently through the day instead of all at once. This will keep your internal levels balanced and will give your kidneys ample time to excrete water.

Heat Exhaustion

There are two types of heat exhaustion: salt depletion and water depletion. Salt depletion typically occurs over several days when people replace fluids but do not replace salt losses in the body. Symptoms of salt depletion include dizziness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and muscle cramps. 

Water depletion occurs when you are exposed to high temperatures for long periods of time with insufficient fluid intake. Symptoms of water depletion will appear within hours and may include pale skin, headache, fainting, nausea, dizziness, and fatigue. 

Heat Stroke

Heatstroke, also known as sunstroke, is a much more severe form of heat exhaustion in which your body overheats due to prolonged exposure in high temperatures. Heat stroke causes your body to heat to dangerous levels which can kill or damage the brain and other internal organs. You can avoid developing heat stroke by drinking water and taking frequent breaks from physical activity in shaded or air-conditioned areas. Heatstroke is a development of other heat-related illnesses such as heat cramps and fainting so if you experience either of these illnesses, rehydrate and alert others of your condition.

Moving in the time of COVID

Moving During the COVID-19 PandemicMoving during the COVID-19 pandemic is scary for many people. The threat of illness and uncertainty around the quarantine is putting many people on edge. While some moving companies may not be taking the necessary precautions to keep everyone safe, here at Men On The Move, we are. Here are some tips and tricks that will help you stay safe during your move!

Tips To Stay Safe Moving During COVID

  • Hire a mover that is practicing CDC issued safety measures

To keep yourself and your family safe from COVID-19, you should make sure that the moving company you hire is maintaining all of the safety procedures set by the CDC. Here at Men On The Move, we are sanitizing our office locations and each truck daily. Also, our movers are wearing masks and gloves while still frequently washing their hands and taking their temperature every day. Due to the method of transfer present in the COVID virus, we ask each of our staff to provide a social distance of 6 feet or more. At Men On The Move, your safety during these difficult times is our priority.

  • Clean and Disinfect Your Belongings

COVID-19 is transferred through airborne droplets which can rest on surfaces for long periods of time. Therefore, before and after the move to a new home, you should clean and disinfect your belongings- especially hard surfaces. With so many people touching your things, you should make an effort to disinfect every item, even if handled cautiously and with gloves.

  • Wash your hands frequently

The best way to kill any germ is to wash your hands frequently. Washing your hands for just 20 seconds in warm water could be the difference between getting sick or not. When moving to a new home, you should not only wash your hands but also wipe down anything that is excessively touched by others. This includes; doorknobs, fridge handles, toilet handles, and anything else you can think of.

Here at Men On The Move, we are executing residential, long-distance, and out of state moves during the quarantine. We are treating each move and each client with the utmost safety. If you are interested in moving during these difficult times, contact us today for any moving services in Southeast Michigan or the surrounding areas. We look forward to hearing from you!

A New Year A New Move

Reasons to Move

With the coming year, you may be looking to move and upgrade to a new home. There are many circumstances that may cause someone to move and moving at the beginning of the new year can be the best time. Whether you are moving to Novi, Canton, Plymouth, Troy, Ann Arbor, Shelby Township, or Farmington Hills, Men On The Move is the best choice for you!

Reasons For a New Year Move

  • New Job

Getting a new job is always a great reason to move, especially if a pay raise is involved. No one enjoys a long commute to and from work. Moving to a new house that is closer to your job is always a good choice. 

  • Better House

Are you moving into a house that is a better fit for you? People’s needs change so you may need to move into a house that can better accommodate you and your family. So, if you are adding to your family or just finding the house a little smaller as your family grows, moving into another house is always the best idea.

  • Better Area

Are you moving to get into a better area closer to family or to get into a better school district? When you move into a new house, choose a location that will work for you and your family in the long run. This may be a popular growing city such as Canton or a homey city such as Ann Arbor.

Benefits Of Moving During The Fall

Moving During The Fall

If you are planning on moving, move in the Fall. Fall if the best time to move for many reasons.  You can enjoy your entire Summer at your house before having to worry about packing and moving to your next one. Not to mention, the many other benefits to booking your move in the Fall season. 

Advantages to Moving During The Fall

  • Easier to book your move. Summer is the busiest season to move in because of families moving when kids are off school, warm weather, et cetera. When Fall comes, moving companies have more spots open in their schedule to move you!
  • Beat the holidays. One of the best reasons to move during the Fall is settling into your new home before Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s. With the worry of packing and moving out of the way, you can celebrate your holidays in peace!
  • Cooler Temperatures. No one likes to move during heat waves or snowstorms. Michigan Fall’s are relatively mild compared to the sweltering Summers and frigid Winters.
  • Easier home-buying experience. The peak home-selling season ends at the end of Summer. So, if you still have to buy a house in the Fall, the prices will decrease to appeal to more buyers. You might get a better price than what you originally planned for!
