Should Movers in Denver, wear booties? While at first this may sound like a good idea, it doesn’t really hold up to scrutiny. This procedure may be quite appropriate for your plumber or cable man, who brings most of their tools/equipment necessary for their job, within one to two trips. However, your movers may make 200+ trips back and forth. The only way to incorporate this process into moving would be to (at each trip): carry a piece of furniture to the front door and put it down before entering the home, put the booties on, and then resume moving the piece into the rooms of the home. Upon returning to the truck for the next piece, they will need to stop at the door to remove the booties to prevent contamination from outdoors. Even if this procedure only adds 30 seconds each time, multiply that by several hundred trips! If you are paying your movers by the hour, which is common practice for local movers in Denver, this can become extremely cost prohibitive.

A safe and economical alternative would be carpet shield for carpeted halls or stairways, in combination with taping down pads (designated for floors) in the entryway. Using this procedure, if something were on the movers’ shoes, this gives them an opportunity to wipe them upon entry and protects main pathways in the home.
