Preparing Your Home for Summer Vacations

6/4/2021 (Permalink)

When summer comes around, most of us enjoy going somewhere else every now and then on an extended vacation. But even during a time of relaxation, it’s important to remember that even while you’re gone, things can still go wrong in your home. And the bills of damage left unattended can wreak havoc both during and after your vacation. But fortunately, the TODAY Show has a list of helpful tips to prevent the unexpected damages while you’re away; 

  • If able, set your water heater on “vacation mode”
  • Make sure storm drains are clean to prevent backups
  • Turn down the house temperature
  • Leave some of the lights on to make it appear that someone is home
  • Consider turning off your water while you’re away to prevent water damage
  • Mow your lawn before leaving to allow the freshly cut grass to absorb more rainwater
  • Lock your doors and windows
  • Consider investing in a monitor or camera to be able to check on your home while away

By remembering to take some simple steps, you can help ensure that your home is protected from a variety of damage. We all want to enjoy our vacations without stress, and it’s a simple task with the right preparation. With a bit of planning, you can make sure you come back to your home in the same condition you left it.
