Before you move into your new place and find a spot for all your belongings, spray for unwanted critters and bugs. Start pest control services as soon as possible. Even if the previous owners kept up on it, it’s all about consistency.

No matter if your new house has uncovered windows or you inherited the previous owner’s window coverings, it’s time to find some that fit your needs and your style. The great thing about window coverings is the wide selection. And that’s where the fun begins. You can choose from honeycomb shades to faux wood blinds and everything in between. Don’t let your windows stay naked for long. Accentuate them with the right window coverings.

New Locks

Even if the locks were changed beforehand, it’s still a good idea to put in new locks. It’s just a safety precaution because you don’t know who had access to the key. You can hire someone or do it yourself. If you do it yourself, it’s not too difficult of a task, and the peace of mind is worth the time, effort, and expense.
