Do You Know What Allergens Could Be Lurking in Traditional Moving Boxes?

Could allergens be lurking in your moving boxes?  Not with Blue Bins!

Have you ever noticed that when you have to move from one residence to another, you experience a lot of sniffling?  It might not simply be that you’re upset about the change in homes; you may actually be reacting to all the yucky stuff floating around the air thanks to the moving boxes you’ve chosen.

The problem is that most people get moving boxes (of all shapes and sizes) from sources that might not be very reputable or clean: groceries, retailers, friends’ basements and attics, etc.  When these types of boxes or bins are brought into your house, you’re suddenly being introduced to all kinds of gross allergens.  Who wants to endure a sneezing fit or hives when in the midst of a major life moment?

The worst part is that you cannot immediately see everything that is waiting to make your eyes water, your throat itch or your nose run.  Items like dander, mildew, mold, dust, animal waste, insects and residual second-hand smoke pollution that have settled into moving boxes of unknown origin will easily become airborne when you begin to pack and unpack your belongings.  When you get to your new house, you’ll wind up introducing those allergens back into the atmosphere.  It’s a no-win situation with true safety concerns.

Rather than taking this kind of health risk, it’s best to choose moving boxes that are much less likely to contain anything other than whatever you put into them.  Plastic moving boxes, like those you can rent from Toronto-based Blue Bins, can be easily sanitized and are therefore a much cleaner source of moving bin.  Even if you spill your coffee on them, clean-up is fast and no residue will be left.  And if you’re fastidious about the sanitation of your home-sweet-home, plastic moving boxes are an ideal way to protect yourself and your loved ones.
