 Your Home - Keeping your Home Safe When You are Away

It is summer time and that means many people are leaving their homes for vacation! Before you leave for your trip, make sure to secure your home. To keep your mind at ease and have a more stress-free vacation, try following some of these tips:

Lights on a Timer

Set your timers on different hours or even different days to insure there is not an easily recognizable pattern.

Call the Post Office

Ask your local Post Office to hold your mail held for the length of your trip so it doesn't pile up in front of your house.

Social Media

Don't post any of your travel plans on social media. As more and more people tend to have their entire life documented on one of the social media sites; it would be wise to think twice before posting your travel plans or listing dates while you are away from your home.

Yard Work

If you are going to be gone for a while, have someone come by and mow the lawn. Call a landscaping company or ask a neighbor to stop by to do this at least once a week while you are gone.
