If you are moving this year, keep in mind the things you should do once you’re in your new place. Even you unbox your stuff and put away your things, you might want to do some double-checking in your brand new home this New Year.
Moving in 2018
Sure, moving into a new place must be very exciting and a little bit daunting at the same time. But this year, make your moving experience extra memorable and much better than your previous moves. Here are five things you should be doing when moving this 2018.
1. Change the Locks
For as low as $10, you can get yourself a new lock that’s exclusively for you and not for the previous renters or owners of your home. Keep yourself and your stuff safe this 2018 by changing your locks.
2. Double Check for Plumbing Leaks
Although your home inspector should be doing this for you, it never hurts to double check and keep an eye out for dripping faucets, and running toilets as these leaks should be fixed.
3. Clean Your Carpet and Cabinets
Give your home a fresh start by having your carpets professionally cleaned and wiping out your cabinets inside and out with a non-toxic cleaner.
4. Get Rid of Pests
You don’t want critters to be sharing your space, do you? These uninvited guests should never feel welcome so look for DIY ways to get rid of them or have a pest removal service to make sure they won’t come back.
5. Get to Know Your Circuit Breaker Box
In case you experience a problem in your house, a properly labeled breaker box will not only save you time but also save you from electrocution
The Bottom Line
Enjoy a smooth move this year that’s less tiring and less stressful by doing these tips. You will experience a noticeably better moving experience than you’ve ever done before.
