Hi, I'm Alan Hilsabeck, Junior, registered interior designer and certified master kitchen and bath designer of Hilsabeck Design Associates. I'm here at the Sub Zero Wolf showroom. And today, I'm going to show you how to properly protect your floor, while moving your refrigerator. Most refrigerators have wheels built in, to make the moving of this bulky and sometimes heavy appliance, easier. Whether you're moving a slide-in refrigerator or a professional model like this, protecting your floor is very important. One would think, that the heavier the refrigerator, the more protection you need. This is not the case. Using a thin piece of cardboard, or a quarter inch Masonite panel, is all that one needs to protect the floor. Using Masonite panels, will disperse the weight of the refrigerator, thus protecting the floor below, just fine. Additional blankets, or thicker materials will only increase the level of difficulty in moving the refrigerator, and should not be considered. Once the floor is protected, make sure you have the rest of the proper equipment, and manpower required to move your refrigerator without injury. So, until next time, this is your design professional, Alan Hilsabeck, Junior of Hilsabeck Design Associates, coming to you from the Sub Zero Wolf showroom, here in Dallas. Have a great day.
