If you finally managed to select and buy a beautiful home where you see yourself and your family living happily ever after, and decide to lay back and relax after that and just ‘move in ‘right after the purchase’, then you will be making a huge mistake. Your new home is where your family will be spending their lives in during most part of the day and such an environment must be converted into a safer one. While there are so many things to be done before moving into a new home, in this article, I’ll be talking about just three of the most important things that you must do before everything else.
Wait till you’re ready to paint
Most home buyers who move in right after the purchase begun their new life after painting the entire house on the very first day itself. This may not be the best thing to do even though it may seem like the easiest and the simplest of the many things you need to do. Understand that the way a house must be painted depends entirely on the level of light received by it. There may be darker areas that receive minimum sunlight during the day which are in need of a light-colored paint to make the area look less dull. Similarly, there could be areas where you can use some textures or designs to give your home an artistic touch using paint. To understand all these, you must spend at least a couple of days in your new home, simply observing the place to see in what ways you can use paint to make it better. So, don’t rich with the brush.
Health and safety concerns
While it is the responsibility of the seller to ensure the safety of the house before making the sale to you, it wouldn’t hurt to invest some extra cash on plumber and electricians to visit the home and carry out a thorough examination. Also, don’t forget to do an asbestos check and asbestos soil on the property find out if any parts of the house or the garden requires any extra attention.
Asbestos which is a substance that is available in many components of a house, when damaged or deteriorated will go airborne while releasing large amounts of fibers to the atmosphere and the air we breathe. Many problems involving your lungs will occur as a result of this and prolonged exposure may even lead to serious health problems such as lung cancer. Seek professional help to get an Melbourne asbestos removal done to make your home a safer place for your family.
Clean your vents
Especially if your home was newly built or if loads of renovation was done to pretty much everything that was previously there in the house, there’s a good chance of your vents being filled with dust and all sorts of debris, and if you simply turn on the HVAC. Otherwise, all that dust will be blown right into the inside of your home, making it a mess that’s hard to live in. Be sure to vacuum these vents before moving in.
