Get On a Vacation With the Family!

Less than a week from now, schoolkids are gonna take a long break from their usual routine of school-home-school-home. This is the time when families finally get the chance to bond for a longer time, so this is an especially popular time for family vacations and trips.

Do remember to take some precautions before you leave. Thieves are good in detecting a house where owners are taking a vacation. If your home is obviously unoccupied, it attracts thieves.

Some tips to keep your home safe while you're away:
  • Get somebody to house-sit. It may be your relatives, or maybe even just the househelp.
  • Double check the locks.
  • Check that your home security systems are working fine.
  • Ask a trusted neighbor to check on your home's perimeter once in while.
  • Set a timer for the lights so that the they automatically turn on at a certain time.
Vacations are fun, but only if you're not worrying about something else, particularly your house. Do go out and enjoy your family!
