Arriving at your new home isn’t quite the finish line in the moving process. Before you can finally relax and enjoy your new environment, there are a few tasks you need to attend to. Read on for tips from Busy Buddies, Inc., a trusted provider of elderly moving services.
Document the Condition of Your New Home
Take photos of your new home, especially if you notice problems or pre-existing damage. Take detailed notes as you go through every room and every corner. Thorough documentation of your new home’s condition is useful when renting a home or apartment. It can serve as proof of what the home initially looked like when it comes time to claim your security deposit.
Place Every Box in the Right Room
Professional movers will likely carry all your boxes to the right rooms, so make sure they’re all properly labeled. This may seem like an unnecessary step, but it will definitely reduce the time and effort involved with unpacking.
Set Up Essential Furniture and Large Appliances
Begin the unpacking process by setting up essential furniture and installing any large appliances that you’ll be using during your first few days. If you need help to declutter your home, professionals can assist you.
Clean Key Areas in Your New Home
You don’t have to clean the entire home on your first day; that would be too exhausting. However, there are a few places that you might want to check and sanitize right away, like the kitchen, bathrooms and other high-traffic areas.
