It’s easy to forget about protecting your home while you’re way amid all the excitement of vacation planning and packing. Here are a few tips to help you keep your home safe while you’re sipping a cool, blended drink on the beach. (Pina Colada, anyone?)
Ask a Friend to Look After Your Place…
If it can be helped, don’t leave your home completely unattended. Ask a friend, family member or neighbour to check in regularly. Among other things, they can keep up with a minimum amount of home maintenance (if you’ll be away for an extended period) and even check to make sure your faucets haven’t frozen over, a real issue in many colder climates.
Plus, if potential burglars see someone visiting regularly, chances are they won't risk a break in.
