Protecting Your Home While You’re Away on Vacation

Take these precautions to keep your home safe while you’re away.

Are you planning on taking a vacation this summer? If so, it’s important that you take steps to keep your home safe in your absence. Not sure where to start? Try out these suggestions to protect your home while you’re away on vacation.

Clean Out Your Kitchen

No one wants to come back from vacation to a home overrun by vermin. This is why you need to clean out your kitchen. Sealing up or discarding open food items before you leave will prevent the smell from attracting ants, rodents, and other vermin. Additionally, it’s important that you clear out crumbs and other traces of food from your cabinets, kitchen sink, and so on. This will also ensure that the smell of food does not attract pests to your home.

Unplug Non-Essential Appliances

While uncommon, power surges can cause plugged-in electronics and appliances to overheat and even catch fire. The best way to reduce this fire risk is by unplugging all non-essential electronics and appliances from your wall outlets. Not only will this help you avoid a house fire while you’re gone, but it will also save you money on your electricity bill.

Invest in a Home Security System

One of the best ways to prevent a home invasion is by investing in a good home security system. These systems will alert you and the authorities in the event that an unauthorized person attempts to enter your home. Additionally, as many new systems come equipped with camera capabilities, you can even use your security system to monitor your home remotely.

Try out these suggestions to keep your home safe while you’re away on vacation this summer.  Want another way to protect your home?  Then make sure you have the proper homeowners insurance in place.  To find the right policies to meet your needs, contact the experts at The Schwab Agency in Colleyville, Texas.  We are ready to get you the coverage that you need today.
