If you are heading out this month on your annual road trip or weekend getaway, we would like to remind you on the importance of protecting your home while you are gone.
Contrary to popular belief, spreading the word that you will be gone is actually beneficial. Let us explain…do not post it on social media but advise a relative or friend who can monitor the home for they days you won’t be there.
Do a walkthrough ensuring that every lock is turned and window shut. A tip most people forget is to put their mail on hold, as a piled up mailbox is a sure tell indicator no one is home. The most common security measure is installing a motion censored light.
Lastly, do not forget to protect your valuables in a safe or bank box before you leave.
