When you move into a new home, you have better things to do than the move-out cleaning.
Moving is a lot of work. Not only do you have to pack up your old home and get it ready for the new owners or tenants, but you also have to make your new house, apartment or townhome into a home. And, that takes a lot of work. Luckily, Suburban Solutions is here to provide you with the professional cleaning services you need in Long Island. Check out our last blog to learn about the first five things that are a better use of your time than move-out cleaning, and keep reading to learn about the last five.
#6. Locate your home’s water shut-off valve.
Hopefully, you won’t have to deal with any plumbing emergencies in your new home anytime soon, but if one does come up, it pays to know how to turn off your home’s water. That’s why it’s important to take some time to locate your new home’s water shut-off valve right after you move in.
#7. Locate the circuit breaker box.
If a circuit breaker gets tripped in your new home, you need to know where the circuit breaker box is so that you can fix it promptly. If you don’t find the circuit breaker box, there’s a good chance you’ll be stuck in the dark, feeling around the garage for the circuit breaker box.
#8. Child-proof your home.
If you have a baby or a toddler, there are a few precautions you’ll want to take in your new home to keep them safe. This may include installing outlet covers, putting up baby gates, installing cabinet latches and more.
#9. Meet your neighbors.
Getting to know your neighbors is very important for the safety and security in your new home. Why? Because your neighbors are a lot more likely to call the police if they notice something suspicious if they know who you are. Also, it always pays to have a friendly neighbor who you can rely on to check your mail and water your plants when you’re on vacation, and of course, it’s always nice to have somewhere to turn when you need a cup or milk or a couple of eggs.
#10. Get to know your new digs.
If you’re just moving down the road, then you probably already know the area well, but if you are moving to a whole new city, then you’ll want to take some time to get to know the area. There’s no reason to try to get to know the entire area right away, but a few key spots to locate include the hospital, grocery store, bank, pharmacy, and veterinarian (if you have a pet).
