Checklist Of Important Things To Do When Moving Into A New Home

When people think about the concept of moving into a new home, they primarily assume that the most important step is packing and unpacking. The reality is, in order for you to experience a seamless transition into your new home, there is a checklist of things you need to do. In this post, we take a look at 5 critical things you should consider when it comes to moving into a new home.


1) Deep Clean Your Property

One of the last things that may be on your mind as you undergo the moving process, is to do a deep clean of your property. But in the same breath, it would be very stressful for you to realize that there were hidden areas of concern that needed to be cleaned after you took the time and effort to move in your belongings. In fact, most experts agree that you should consider using professional cleaning services before you place your personal property inside a new home.


2) Identify Things That Need To Be Repaired

Unless your home was built from scratch, it may have several issues that need to be addressed. In some cases, it could be major such as rotted wood or old roofing systems and in some cases it could be relatively minor such as a malfunctioning doorknob or carpet stain. Even though you may already have a list of things that need to be addressed as a result of a home inspection that was conducted, it doesn't hurt to walk through the house to see if you can locate issues that may have been overlooked.


3) Get New Furniture

If you have several pieces of furniture that you want to bring into your new home, consider the possibility of replacing them with brand new furniture pieces. This is especially important if you lived in a property that had a pest infestation such as rats, spiders or bed bugs. The last thing you would want is to move a rat or bed bug with you, into your new home. In some cases such as bedroom sets, you may be able to get something that is much more visually appealing and comfortable, as opposed to spending money to move old, faded furniture into your new home. When it comes to getting brand new furniture at reasonable prices, Copper and Tweed has developed an excellent reputation for providing furniture at affordable rates, without a compromise on quality.


4) Change Your Locks

Many homeowners have admitted that they never changed the locks on their new home when they initially moved in. Regardless of how you feel about the previous owner, the reality is that you do not know if other people in their circle have access to their keys. This could be anyone from their parents, to children and disgruntled exes. Your home is your sanctuary and you should treat it as such by ensuring that it is 100% secure.


5) Child/Pet Proof Your Home

If you have pets or children, do not wait until you're already settled into child/pet-proof your home. Do a quick run-through and identify problem areas such as wall sockets. In addition to that as you move your belongings in, establish a kid/pet-free zone that you will use to discard materials such as boxes, tapes, and cords.
