For the safety of your family and pets these are important reason to complete  the following tasks as soon as possible after moving in

1. Change locks and garage door entry code. You never know how many of the former owners friend, neighbors, relatives have a key or know the garage code. 

2. Make sure to check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. If they are old or there aren't any purchase some and put them up right away. 

3. Check motion lights and security systems to ensure they are working properly.

4. Locate your main shut off valve for gas and water. Also know where the circuit box is and label all the breakers. 

5. Make sure to hide a copy of your key in a combination lock-box. Burglars know all the usual spots where people hide keys such as under flower pot and in a face rock.

6. Purchase a fire extinguisher for the kitchen and one for each additional floor

7. Temperature on Water heater should not be set higher then 120F for Eco-friendly settings, especially with young children in the house.
