· CLOSETS: Please empty closets and remove shelving. If you choose not to, we will work around the systems. For removal assistance from our team, additional charges may apply.

· PICTURE HARDWARE: Please leave nails, hooks, and picture-hangers in place if you plan to re-hang the pictures. If not, please remove them. Our painters will repair any holes.

· ELECTRONICS: Please disconnect wiring from computers, video, TV and stereos. Remember to identify the wires in order to reinstall them easily after the work is complete.
