Protect Your Home While You are Away With These Tips

Thing to do Before Traveling to Protect Your California Home

With the holidays just a few days away, you may find yourself packing a suitcase to go visit your friends and family. Before heading out, do not forget to protect your home while you are gone. We want your holiday vacation to be nothing short of amazing, so we have gathered some ways to help you keep your home safe while you are away!

  • Turn off the main water supply to your home. Turning off the water at the supply point, will ensure that you do not come home to a flooded home.
  • Unplug any electronics that are not essential. This includes electronics such as your toaster, TV, and computer. Unplugging non-essential electronics will ensure that they are not damaged in case of a power surge while you are away.
  • Install a timer on a few lights in your home. Making sure that your home does not stay dark the entire time you are gone will help to deter burglars, since it will seem like someone is home.
  • Ask your post office to hold your mail, or have a trusted neighbor pick it up each day. An overflowing mailbox is a sure sign that a home is empty.
  • Pour baking soda down your toilet and drain to keep your home smelling fresh. Standing water in sinks can cause an unpleasant smell that will not be welcoming when you come back home.
  • Clean your home. You do not have to deep clean, but wipe down the counters and take out the trash to ensure that critters do not make themselves at home while you are away.

Most importantly, make sure to check your homeowner’s insurance policy to ensure that it will provide the right amount of protection in case of any unfortunate situation while you are gone. Contact VantagePlus Insurance in Alhambra, California for all of your insurance needs.
