Securing Your Home Before Vacation

Your bags are packed, your activities are planned, and you’re ready to go on vacation. The only thing left to do is make sure your home is ready as well. When you’re away, not only should you secure your home to reduce the risk of burglary, which increases during the summer months, but you must reduce hazardous risks in the case of severe weather conditions. This way you can spend less time worrying about what’s happening at home and spend more time enjoying your vacation.

Incident Risk Reduction

  • Install a security system (An estimated 54% of Americans do not have one)

  • Secure spare keys in a lock box

  • Hire someone to maintain landscaping so that your absence is less noticeable

  • Pause mail and newspaper deliveries to avoid pileup

  • Prune or remove branches close to your home

  • Unplug electronics and check smoke detectors

  • Seal any cracks in windows

  • Fix any leaks or turn off water source before leaving

  • Move vehicles into garage or put under cover

As always, we’d love to help you with your next move and take special care of any referrals that you send our way.
