Dear valued clients,
Our business is continuing to operate as we navigate the current COVID-19 situation, and we are adapting our operations by practicing social distancing, and reiterating the practices of good hygiene, like frequent hand washing, providing hand sanitizer and gloves for the moving crews. We are also offering virtual onsites for current/ future clients during the current situation. We will do our best to keep our current clientele informed of any changes to current/ future moves.

As our client, your safety and health is our #1 priority during this state of emergency. Please consider the following guidelines to prepare for your move with us:

⚠ADVICE FOR CLIENTS REGARDING SETTING UP CONDITIONS FOR A MOVE: • Upon our arrival, please have your residence/ office/ items as ready as possible (cleaned/ sanitized and ventilated in advance) for the removal of your items. • It is recommended that you/ your representatives will keep, at a minimum, 6 feet of distance from our crew. Our crew members will keep, at a minimum, 6 feet of distance or more at the time of service. • You will assure continuous ventilation of the spaces we work in at all times. • Please provide dedicated bathroom(s), equipped with soap and paper towels for our crew members.

⚠LIMITATION OF LIABILITIES OF MOVING COMPANIES AND THEIR RIGHT TO CANCEL WORK (NATIONAL LOCAL MOVES): The Government has stated it is or will be implementing (as yet) measures to combat the spread of the virus. Such measures in place might impact our ability to provide services to you (including but not limited for us having to suspend or cancel in full the services) or the virus otherwise affects our ability to fulfill your relocation. This may place us in a position where we will not be able to accept any ability for any losses that may arise and we limit our liability accordingly. We are keeping the matter under careful review and will ensure that all customers are advised of any developments that may affect fulfillment of contracted services.

As our team at Homegrown Moving Company has been following updates, we are choosing to work with & adhere to the guidelines set forth by health officials and authorities. We want to do our part in mitigating the impact and spread of COVID-19 to the businesses and communities we serve, and we are implementing the following strategies to do so:

We have discussed with our team members what to do in the scenario that anyone is experiencing symptoms or may have been exposed to the virus. We have an understanding among ourselves to be transparent if somebody's not feeling good or may have been exposed. We understand the need to self quarantine for the proper amount of time, if this occurs, to avoid any further spread. In turn, we ask the same from our customers. In the event that you are feeling sick or may have been exposed, we are happy to make arrangements for another move date.

Use of examination gloves: Our teams will wear examination gloves while servicing moves as an additional hygiene measure and self protection. Gloves will be discarded after each move.

Due to the high demand of masks, we are unable to provide them at the moment, but if you would like masks to be provided for your move, please provide them and we can use them.

Our team will also have hand sanitizer, and we ask that they are allowed to use a sink or water source to wash their hands when available. Social distancing: Upon arrival to our customers' homes or offices, team members will follow the protocol of social distancing, allowing 6' between team members and you, our customer. We have always valued the professionalism and respect that accompany an introductory handshake, however during the COVID-19 outbreak, we ask that our customers understand for safety purposes that we will refrain from shaking hands or making physical contact.

Proper ventilation: In move settings when available, we request that our customers open outside doors and/or windows to increase air circulation. All of the above will be effective immediately and remain in place until April 20th, until we can reassess the situation and make further announcements. We strive to continue to practice CDC/ Federal / State/ WHO (World Health Organization) guidelines for health and safety to prevent contagion in our community.

Thank you, Homegrown Moving

Clean your house in a day before a local Lakewood move

A large number of days are lost during the move. Part goes to the organization and selection of the moving company, part to packing, and everything needs to be cleaned before the move. This can reduce your monthly income, and you certainly don’t want that. That is why it is important to reduce the days dedicated to moving. Based on the experience of some of the finest moving companies Denver has to offer, we will provide instructions for express cleaning of the house. If you want to clean the house a day before a local Lakewood move, first go through the house with paper and write down what needs to be done.

Let’s start our cleaning

Once you’ve created a to-do list, it will be easier to determine what cleaning supplies you need. Get everything ready and you can start the cleaning.

Surface cleaning

Firstly, it is best to go through the entire apartment and clean it of garbage. If all small items, kitchen and toilet utensils, as well as clothes, are packed in boxes, it will speed up the cleaning. If you contracted that part of the work with a moving services Denver, it is important to arrange them in their places, so that the packing takes place systematically.

From top to bottom

If you have to clean several floors, it is important to start from the top and move down. The opposite direction will cause already cleaned surfaces to turn white again from dust, which falls according to the law of gravity. Prepare a vacuum cleaner and remove all the dust from the house.


Deep cleaning before the local Lakewood move

Although it takes the most time, deep cleaning is actually the end of the job. Given that for washing the toilet we use products that need to stand for a while, which also applies to the inside of the oven, we should start there. While we wait for their effect on dirt and grease, we don’t waste precious time.

Room by room

This part of cleaning will not take much time, considering that it is about wiping flat surfaces. After vacuuming, wipe all the cupboards, wardrobes, tables, mirrors, and then the floors and walls. It is important to pick up every little thing from the corners so that after taking out the furniture, additional cleaning is not waiting for you.

Kitchen and bathroom

Of all rooms, the kitchen and bathroom will certainly require more time when it comes to cleaning. Clean the shelves in the kitchen, vacuum the crumbs with a handheld vacuum from the farthest corners, then wipe and disinfect everything. In addition to the exterior, deep cleaning of all kitchen appliances is very important. Clean the toasters and microwave of crumbs and wash the inside of the microwave as well as the dinner plate. Also, give attention to the inside of the dishwasher as well as the filter. After the time necessary for the chemicals to act on the dirty surfaces, we start washing. Wash the oven, hob, switches, and air cleaner. Finish with a thorough cleaning of the toilet surfaces.

Finish with floors

After everything, clean the floors moving from the inside to the exit of the apartment. Now you are ready to complete your move with the help of any Denver residential movers. Follow these steps to finish everything on time.

Achieve a common goal by working together

Cleaning the whole house in one day sounds like an impossible mission, but with enough dedication, planning your workday, and teamwork, you can finish it in no time. Family members can also help you, as it is in everyone’s best interest to have the cleanup done before the movers Lakewood CO crew arrives. If it is necessary to clean the house in a day before a local Lakewood move, and you are not sure that you will finish it yourself, hire professional cleaners.
