Home Safety Checklist, When You Are Away On Vacation

 

The holidays are around the corner. Many people have plans to go away on vacation visiting their out of town families. This home safety checklist will help to keep your home safe when you are away.

 

 

Home Safety Checklist # 1 

1.    Set your daily or frequently used lights and TV on timers with different on/off times, so that others may not know there is nobody home. 

2.    Install motion detectors on outside lights. Use deadbolt locks on all the outside doors. And set the  loud alarm system on. 

3.    Make arrangements for your lawn care. 

4.    Stop all your newspaper and mail delivery or have a trustworthy relative or friend pick up these items daily. 

5.    Ask a relative or a friend you can trust to check your home at random times. Only give them the keys they need to enter the house. 

6.    Check that all the doors and windows are securely closed and locked before you leave your home.  

 

Home Safety Checklist # 2

 

1.    Turn off your water heater and all water valves, to prevent leaking if pipes are broken. 

2.    Unplug all your expensive electronic equipment – computer, TV, printer to avoid damage by lightning strikes and power surges. 

3.    Adjust your thermostat to save your electric bill. 

4.    If you have a pool, make sure all the screen doors are locked to avoid accident from happening, and ensure that your neighbor’s children don’t fall into the pool and drown.

 

Home Safety Checklist # 3

 

1.    Make sure your homeowners and car insurance policies premiums are paid. 

2.    Make sure no payments are due while you are away from home. 

3.    Make sure your homeowners and your car insurance policies are in a safe place. If you drive you may have the car policy in your car.

  

Be prepared and enjoy your holidays!
