4 Things All New Homeowners Should Do

As the owner of a new home, we in Mansfield believe there are certain things you should do before moving into your brand new home. We’ve provided a short to-do list that will help make your move-in process smoother and less stressful. Check out what our crew at Handyman Connection of McKinney recommend for you.

Replace Exterior Locks

One thing most homeowners like to do in case of emergencies is making spare keys for their home. Because of this, there is always a chance that multiple copies of your new home’s key exist and are in the possession of multiple people. To be safe, we highly suggest replacing all exterior locks on your entrance ways. This will keep your home safe going into the future and will give you and your family peace of mind.

Inspect Your Home

Before you move in, we suggest doing an extensive inspection of the entire home to find any damages that may be in need of repair. If you do find things that need fixing, we suggest getting that done before moving all your furniture and items in. Also, sometimes by fixing one thing, you are faced with another, so it’s much easier in the long run if you can take care of any repairs as soon as possible.

Clean Everything

You have a home that is completely empty. Use this opportunity to do some extensive deep cleaning to all areas of your home. You can either do this yourself, or you can hire a local professional cleaning service to help you. We also recommend making sure all the household appliances are functioning properly.


Similar to cleaning, with an empty house, use this opportunity to add a fresh coat of paint to give your home a fresh feel. It’s always best to do these things before there is any furniture in the way. You don’t have to worry about moving things around or getting paint on the furniture. This also applies if you would like to put up wallpaper.
