Whether you have just sold your home or are moving out of an apartment, you want to be respectful of the new residents who will be moving in after you’re gone. Because of this, you’ll want to double-check several spots in your home to make sure you’ve gathered up all your belongings and cleaned as much as possible. If you’re wondering which spots you should focus on, here are five we at O’Malley Moving recommend.
While you may have used your basement for storage or turned it into an area your entire family spent plenty of time in, give this area a once-over before you leave. Along with making sure you don’t leave some prized possessions behind, give it a good cleaning to prevent mold growth and have it ready for the new residents.
Crawl Spaces and Attics
As the best local movers in Chester County, we often find people ignore their home’s crawl spaces and attics during their moves. As a result, they leave items behind and often a large mess for new tenants or owners to clean up.
When air vents become clogged due to dust and dirt, this can lead to major problems with air conditioning units, appliances, and other items. Along with not letting air properly flow throughout a home, clogged air vents can also result in appliances and furnaces working harder than necessary, which can lead to them breaking down.
From your refrigerator to your stove, we here at O’Malley Moving Services always find people rarely move and clean behind their appliances before moving. While you need to be careful when moving these appliances to make sure you don’t tear up the floor or hurt your back, doing so can get rid of hair and dirt that gets sucked up into intake fans and grills.
Last but not least, we suggest you take one final swing through various storage spaces within your home. From closets and cabinets to a chest of drawers and other storage cabinets you may have here and there, looking in and around these spaces will guarantee you won’t arrive at your new home and realize you left valuables in a place you forgot to check.
