Preparing for a Summer Vacation

July 7, 2022

When preparing to leave for a vacation, it's so easy to overlook basic home safety precautions. To protect your home while you're away and enjoy a worry-free trip, keep in mind the following tips:

  • Unplug small appliances and electronic devices.
  • Pause newspaper and mail deliveries.
  • Lock all windows and doors.
  • Arrange to have your lawn mowed while you're away.
  • Have a trusted neighbour or family member keep an eye on your home throughout your trip.
  • Set timers on inside lights and install a motion-activated sensor on outdoor lights.
  • Consider turning off your home's water.
  • Avoid posting photos of your trip on social media until after you return home.
  • Raise the temperature on your thermostat or turn the system off completely. This ensures that you aren't paying to cool your home while you are away.
