Is your home safe when you're on vacation?

7/23/2019 (Permalink)

According to a recent study, thirty-give percent of Americans plan on taking at least one family vacation every year.  If you plan on traveling for more than a couple of days, you should make sure your home is properly protected while you're away.  You already know to check and double check that each window and door is properly locked, but you may be missing a couple of steps that will ensure your home is truly safe while you and your family are elsewhere. Here's a few easy steps to not inadvertently alert others that your home is empty.  

1. Suspend mail and newspaper services. 

2. Arrange for lawn care services while you are gone. This will help make your home seem less abandoned to strangers.

3. Install exterior lighting or motion detectors to deter burglars.

4. Wait to post vacation pictures on social media until you return home.  No need to advertise to everyone that you aren't home.

Hopefully these tips help to protect your home and give you more people of mind during your next vacation.
