Avoid These Symptoms of Heat Exhaustion

Summer is here, and that means the weather is really starting to heat up. While it may be nice not to worry about snowfall and ice on the roads, staying active in the heat has its own challenges. When you’re packing up your home and moving to a new house, it’s important to be mindful of the weather and how it’s affecting your health and wellbeing. Here are a few signs of heat exhaustion that your Denver movers want you to avoid when packing and unpacking this summer.

Sweating Profusely

While you’re definitely going to get sweaty anytime you do physical labor in warm weather; you should never be completely drenched. If sweat is dripping down your face and making it hard to see or you can’t seem to cool off at all, take a break. Continuing to push through the discomfort and ignoring the fact that your body is quickly losing water can escalate heat exhaustion quickly. Find a shady area if you’re outside or step indoors and cool off in front of a fan. This will help dry the sweat and cool your core body temperature so you can continue to work without ill effects.

Nausea

Stomach discomfort is the last thing anyone wants to experience when moving, but many people quickly blame nausea on nerves or excitement. While your stomach upset could be caused by nerves, it’s important to pay close attention to how you’re feeling if you’ve been working in the heat. Nausea is a severe symptom of heat exhaustion and must be dealt with immediately. If you feel unwell, stop what you’re doing and sip on cold water. If your stomach settles down, you can get back to work. However, you will need to take care to drink plenty of water as you work. Nausea can mean that your body is dehydrated, and taking frequent water breaks will help eliminate this symptom.

Dizziness

Heat and dehydration can make you feel lightheaded and dizzy. If you feel like the world is spinning, immediately take a break. Pushing through the discomfort can lead to heatstroke and force you to seek emergency medical attention. While you’re working, keep an eye on anyone helping you. If they start to look woozy or have trouble keeping their balance, have them sit down immediately. Use a damp rag or washcloth and drape it around their neck. This will help cool the core body temperature quickly and reduce the risk of heat exhaustion in a matter of minutes.

Avoiding heatstroke and heat exhaustion is one of the most important things you can do when moving during the summer. If you’re worried about your family’s safety or want a little help in getting packed up more quickly, let our packing services team get the job done right. At Eden’s Moving Services, we believe that moving to your new home should be exciting, and we’ll take the stress out of the relocation so you can enjoy the experience.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Eden's Moving was one of the best moving experiences I've ever had with a moving company, the movers were timely, professional, hard working, considerate, and knowledgeable. Dawn the scheduler and front office personnel was outstanding with her professionalism and communication. I highly recommend Eden's Moving to anyone seeking movers they will not let you down!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
