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.
