For anyone heading out on a well-deserved vacation, taking time to make sure your home is protected will help you relax while you’re away.
Small things like cancelling the mail or a newspaper subscription while you’re away will make it less obvious to would-be home invaders that no one’s home. Likewise, ask a neighbor or family member to come by and turn on a few lights throughout the week. Be sure to turn on your home security system, and if you live in a small town, consider asking the local police to drive by your home once or twice as well.
Above all else, be sure to lock your doors and windows and follow this blog for more home security tips.
