We in Mountain View believe there are certain things you should do before moving into your brand new home. We’ve provided a short to-do list that will help make your move-in process easier and efficient. Check out what our crew at Handyman Connection of Mountain View recommend for you.
Replace Exterior Locks
One thing most homeowners do in case of emergencies is make spare keys for their home. Because we always seem to be losing our keys, there is always a chance that multiple copies of your new home’s key are in the possession of people you don’t know. To be safe, we highly suggest replacing all exterior locks. This will help keep your home safe without you having to worry.
Inspect Your Home
Before you move in, we suggest doing an inspection of the entire home to see if anything needs to be repaired. If you do find things that need fixing, we suggest getting that done before moving in, so you don’t have to worry about moving around furniture.
With your new home being empty, we suggest using this opportunity to do some extensive deep cleaning. You can either do this yourself, or you can hire a local professional cleaning service. You should also make sure all the household appliances function properly.
Painting or Wallpaper
Similar to cleaning, with an empty house, use this opportunity to add a fresh coat of paint or wallpaper to give your home a fresh feel. It’s always best to do these things before there is any furniture in the way. You don’t have to worry about moving things around or getting paint on the furniture.
