Read on for vacation tips from A Mother’s Touch Movers.

When you head out, you do not want to leave the impression that no one is at home. An empty house is a fodder for burglars so take measures to make it look like someone is there even if this isn’t really the case. State Farm suggests installing timers for interior lights. You can set these to turn on and off at specific times to give the illusion that people are at home. Don’t post your trip on social media outlets. This makes it easy for those with less than reputable intentions to find easy targets. Contact your alarm company if you are headed out and let them know to be on high alert. If you have a house key concealed somewhere outside, just in case, take it inside before you leave.

Once you have safety measures in place to prevent break-ins, you will want to take extra measure to protect the house itself. Consider setting your HVAC system to a higher temperature but don’t turn it off completely. You will want air to continue to circulate throughout your home while you are away. Turn off the main water supply to your home.

If there is an issue with your pipes and something goes wrong while you are away, this simple step can help prevent disaster. You also need to unplug electronics before you go. Devices like televisions and computers continue to draw power even when they are turned off. Unplugging helps you save money and prevents power surges from causing damage.

There is no reason why you cannot enjoy your time away and protect your home at the same time. These tips will help you return to a happy and safe home. Stay tuned for our next post on what you can do to protect the exterior portions of your house while you go on vacation.
