Moving to your new home is exciting, but before you fully settle in you need to take care of some basic maintenance tasks. These include cleaning your vents, checking your plumbing, replacing your locks, among others. Handyman Connection® of Jeffersonville explains more:
Clean the Vents
The vents in your new home might have been collecting dust and lint for years. Before fully settling in, you want to ensure that your family is breathing clean air by having a professional perform air duct inspection and maintenance. After the cleaning, we also suggest replacing your filter every three months to keep the air in your home clean.
Inspect Your Plumbing
You don’t want to deal with plumbing problems a few days after moving in. Check your exposed pipes, faucets and showers. Don’t forget to inspect the pipes in your basement for any signs of leakage. You can also schedule a professional inspection if you want to be absolutely sure there are no problems with your plumbing.
Replace the Current Locks
This is now your new home, so you need to secure it. Replace all of the locks even if the current locks are in good condition. This will give you the peace of mind you need because no one can access your home without your permission.
Inspect the Chimney
Schedule a professional chimney inspection even if you don’t plan on using the chimney. There might be structural issues that can lead to pests accessing your interior and poor energy efficiency. Verify if it’s safe to use before you do so.
