Those of you going on trips really ought to consider looking into some home tips for travelers. Especially when it comes to securing the home before a trip.
It should really go without saying but sometimes people need to really be reminded about the importance of home security as a part of their travel prep. Often times people are in such a mad rush to get out the door and on the plane that they forget.
They make mistakes.
And, unfortunately, mistakes can not only endanger the home, they can prevent a homeowner from enjoying their time away. They just don’t have that peace of mind.
Luckily, there’s more than one way to secure the home.
One important thing to take care of that many people overlook is halting mail and newspaper delivery. It’s pretty telling to any criminal looking to let themselves in that no one is home when there’s a week’s worth of newspapers piled in the driveway next to an overflowing mailbox.
Another thing people overlook the importance of is lighting. Lights, typically mean that someone is home and buying one of those timers for your lights can further drive home the illusion.
There are plenty of other ways to secure the home while you’re away. Just don’t forget to do it! That should be item 1 on your travel prep list for California or, really, anywhere else.
