When you move into your first Denver home, you are sure to be overcome with excitement and many other emotions; but, do not forget to take care of a few critical action items before settling into your new home. Let’s take a look at some of the more important items, thanks to Zillow.com.
- Change the locks. There is no guarantee that there are no additional copies of your house key in the hands of strangers, so play it safe and change the locks on your new home.
- Replace the furnace filter so that your new home’s heating efficiency is not forgotten during your move-in period. This is an area that is easy to overlook.
- Much like changing the locks, reprogramming the garage door is essential to ensure the safety of those inside the home. It is always better to be safe than sorry in this situation.
- Put new batteries in the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. You also need to test each one out to make sure they are in proper working order. These devices are one of the most important factors when it comes to your family’s safety at home.
