A vacation is meant to be a stress-free getaway so finding out that something has gone wrong back home can quickly ruin your trip.
An empty home is, unfortunately, an ideal target for criminals. Taking extra preventive measures can help ensure that your home and your belongings will be safe while you’re away.
Buy a light switch timer – leaving your lights on while you’re on vacation is a bad idea for your electrical bill. Buy a light switch timer that will automatically turn lights on and off throughout the day to give the impression that there are people in the house.
Avoid posting on social media – While posting vacation photos may be tempting, avoid giving criminals notice on social media that your house is empty.
Ask a friend/relative to check in – Asking someone you know to check in from time to time while on vacation can make sure that any unexpected disturbances don’t go unnoticed.
Check all windows and doors – While it may seem like a no-brainer, double checking doors and windows to make sure that they are locked is crucial in preventing break-ins.
Preventive measures like these will not only give you peace of mind but will also help ensure that your belongings are safe. Contact us to learn more about preventative safety tips for vacationers.
