Priority Tasks for Your Move In

Moving into a new home is an exciting time, and you’re probably

daydreaming about decor and paint schemes and new furniture.

But before you get into the fun stuff, there are some basics you should

cover first.

Change the locks

Even if you’re promised that new locks have been installed in your home, you can never be

too careful. It’s worth the money to have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that no

one else has the keys to your home. Changing the locks can be a DIY project, or you can call

in a locksmith for a little extra money.

Steam clean the carpets

It’s good to get a fresh start with your floors before you start decorating. The previous owners may

have had pets, young children, or just some plain old clumsiness. Take the time to steam clean the carpets

so that your floors are free of stains and allergens. It’s pretty easy and affordable to rent a steam cleaner—your

local grocery store may have them available.

Call an exterminator

Prior to move-in, you probably haven’t spent enough time in the house to get a view of any pests that may be lurking.

Call an exterminator to take care of any mice, insects, and other critters that may be hiding in your home.

Clean out the kitchen

If the previous occupants wanted to skip on some of their cleaning duties when they moved out, the kitchen is where

they probably cut corners. Wipe down the inside of cabinets, clean out the refrigerator, clean the oven, and clean in the

nooks and crannies underneath the appliances.
