If you have bed frames, tables, wardrobes or any other type of furniture that can be disassembled, do it. Take them apart, clean them with soap and water and rub on a thin coat of wax. This will protect them from excessive humidity. Also put all the bolts, screws and nuts in a plastic bag and tape them to the furniture they belong to. This way you won’t have problems putting them back together!
Also cover all the table tops and headboards with a quilt or another big piece of fabric. They will prevent scratching and denting.
Purchase plastic sheets, if possible the ones used in construction buildings, and before you start offloading your possessions, place them on the ground. By doing this you will prevent the moisture and humidity from the floor affect your belongings. They will be able to breathe more easily.
