When it comes to the safety of your home while you are on vacation, make sure to take these tips into consideration.
If there’s one thing you can take from Home Alone, it’s that burglars may have their eye on your home and wait until you leave on vacation to strike. But you don’t have to set elaborate traps for these burglars (which may land you in more trouble than you think) because there are some safety precautions you can take to keep your home safe and protected during your vacation. Let’s find out what you can do before you leave on vacation to protect your home.
- Don’t Post on Social Media
We all have those friends on social media to whom we haven’t spoken in years and hardly ever really knew. If you post pictures of your vacation, they may decide to target your home. If you must post pictures of your vacation, make sure to do so after you have returned.
- Curtains: Open or Closed?
Leaving your windows closed for an extended period of time may look suspicious and signal to thieves that no one is home. Leaving them open signals the same thing. To attract the least amount of attention, make sure to leave your curtains exactly the way you do when you are home. Just be sure to remove all expensive, big-ticket items from sight.
- Homeowners Insurance Policy
Even our best efforts may not be enough to deter some criminals. A proper homeowners insurance policy can protect your assets from theft and vandalism, along with a plethora of other perils.
To protect your home from the dangers of Mother Nature, ensure that you have a homeowners insurance policy that works hard for you! To get excellent coverage for your Connecticut home, contact C.V. Mason Insurance Agency in Bristol today.
