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

Renovating a penthouse; ideas and tips

You decided on renovating your condo. Maybe you are staging your place to sell or moving in and you want to adjust your new place. Whatever the case is, it is a wonderful thing to do and you should enjoy the whole process. But you do not know where to start? Do not worry, we will provide a few tips and tricks on renovating a penthouse and how to do it right.

How to handle everything when moving

The new place you are moving into surely needs a personal touch. But remember, you will need some space to move freely through your home and renovate without any obstacles on the way. This means you should instruct your Denver professional movers to unload the moving truck into the designated area. Choose a room in your home that will hold all your boxes and another for furniture. Then you can renovate in peace and pull the stuff you need gradually. Hopefully, you labeled your moving boxes adequately and you’ll have an easier time locating everything you need.

Introducing new colors is a way of renovating a penthouse

Most of the time when we mention redecorating and renovating a penthouse, people think it is an expensive and time-consuming process. Yes, it might take a while but it can be done on a budget. Probably the best option is to change colors around the place. Especially if you are moving into a new place. You surely want to personalize the whole picture and implement the colors you like the most. Hence, begin with the home inspection and figure out which colors to use for your kitchen, living room, bedroom, and children’s room. Consult with an interior designer if you are not sure what would be the best color option. After you obtain your answers, rush to the nearest hardware store and purchase all the paint necessary.

renovating a penthouse is easy with just a bit of paint
A simple change of color can brighten up your new living space.

What is beautiful about this renovating option, is the fact you can do it yourself. But if you are not up to it, pay the painting service and you’ll be done in a week. Also, don’t forget to bring out all your furniture or at least cover it with the tarp or sheets that you can throw away afterward. Probably the best solution is to short-term storage and keeps your items there until the renovation is done. Depending on what kind of renovating project you have, this can last up to a month or even more. You need a place for your items and this would be the best and most affordable solution. Although, if you have a big garage or a friend that has one, it can be a problem solver as well.

Change lights around the place

Hopefully, you are not moving into temporary housing because the next renovating tip is for owners only. Ok, you can do it any way but it is a stretch and you’ll leave it all behind when moving out. Yes, we are talking about the lights around the place. You won’t believe how a simple change like this one can refresh your entire environment. And possibilities are endless. Just check a few commonly used options:

  • Overhead lights
  • Floor lights
  • Multi-colored lightbulbs
  • LED lights
  • A new lamp

When considering the new light system pay close attention to the LED lights that are both cheap and easy to install. But whatever you choose, keep in mind that new lights will make your space look bigger, you can set the right mood, and you’ll see better. Make an experiment in one of the rooms and if you like the outcome move your project to the rest of the apartment.

When renovating a penthouse, start with the kitchen

You are renewing a penthouse but you still have a kitchen, right? And this is the place you can introduce hundreds of renovating ideas. Several smaller introductions can turn this place around and make it more efficient for everyday use. So, start thinking about the quality of life in general. Begin with your doors, windows, floors, and walls. Especially the last one. Use the space given and make your kitchen a functional place rather than a cluttered one. Your walls can hold a hanging shelving system that can support all your skillets, pans, pots, kitchen cloth, etc. The same goes for the back of your doors and for the corners, purchase wooden weaved baskets to serve as holders for random items usually scattered all over the place.

Pick a tile you like and create a unique backsplash behind your sink.

Now when you cleared the space a bit, you’ll realize you can introduce a new kitchen rug, appropriate curtains, and introduce a bit more color and light. Also, one easy kitchen renovation is to tend to your sink. It is the place you spend the most time when washing dishes, cooking, and cleaning. Therefore, add a few colorful tiles and create a custom-made backsplash. Then replace the faucet if needed and refresh your sink with the metal spray to give it a new glow. A few simple renovating ideas for your kitchen can be done in a day or less.

Small details can change a lot

Usually, the answer lies in the simplicity of things. There are many items around your home that can be changed to spice things up a bit. Hence, inspect your doorknobs, utilities, switches, outlets, coat hangers, mirrors, etc. All those items scattered around the place can be more stylish or simply changed to blend with the new colors and light you already implemented. Also, refurbishing your old furniture and hardwood floors is another way to go. And pay special attention to your front entrance. Adding a stylish doormat and a few potted plants can make a huge difference. But more importantly, to represent the family living in this wonderful home. Hopefully, you decided on moving your houseplants. If not, purchase a few at the local market.

Now you have a few more ideas on how renovating a penthouse should look like. Choose the options you are most comfortable with and start planning. Find your basic toolkit and get ready for renovating. Good luck and have fun.
