Essential Things To Do Before Leaving For Vacation
It is that time of the year when everyone wants to escape the cold, and head to warmer weather. You have booked the trip, found the must-see attractions, and charged the electronics! It is time to head to the airport.
But before you leave, make sure your house is ready for you to leave! In order to ensure that your house is going to be the way you left it when you return follow these easy tips!
1. Turn off your main water supply
One should turn this off to avoid water damage if a leak is to occur while on vacation.
2. Unplug electronics
Unplugging the electronics that will not be in use while you are gone will save you money on your electricity bill - will also help prevent an electrical fire.
3. Adjust your thermostat
Cooler Climate: Turn it down between 50 - 60 degrees F
Warmer Climate: Turn it up 5 degrees F higher than normal
4. Pour baking soda down your drains and toilets
By pouring this it will help with clear clogs and keep a fresh smell.
5. Check up on your insurance
Knowing what your insurance policies are will save you the headache when you get home if something does occur.
Once your checklist is all checked off, head out and enjoy that warmer weather on vacation!
All of these are tips that can help prevent matters from occurring, but are not a guarantee.
