Moving in the winter is just like moving in the summer in that people are going in and out of the house all day long. In the winter, though, this involves lots of different pairs of feet tracking snow, dirt, and ice melter into your home. This can damage your floors and make it harder to get your deposit back, or ruin the carpet in your new place. With this in mind, cover your floors with paper, cheap plastic tarps, and floor mats. This makes it easy for people to move about as they need, without worrying about ruining your floors. You may also consider turning off the heat, to save your furnace from trying to keep your house warm, while all its hard work flows right out the ever-open door.
