Leave The Stress Behind: Protect Your Home While Away

Leave The Stress Behind: Protect Your Home While AwayHave Holiday Travel Plans? Consider These Precautions

Connecting with friends or family or enjoying a remote getaway might be just what you need to wrap up 2014, but with 2015 around the corner you will want to make sure you can get a strong start. Protect your home while you are away with this short list of preventative measures:

  • Phone a Friend: Ask a friend or family member to take a look at your house every couple of days. A quick drive-by is usually sufficient to see that all is well. Knowing that someone is checking in will give you peace of mind, and will alert you to any issues immediately—before they grow.
  • Don’t Go Changing: Do not tip off potential thieves with significant changes to your home. Leave your curtains and blinds as they normally are, and keep lights on a timer so all will appear as usual.
  • Check Your Pipeline: If you have talked a friend into checking on the house, ask them to step in and turn on the faucet every few days. A steady flow of water will let them (and you) know your pipes are not freezing.
