Going Out of Town? Protect Your Home With Homeowners Insurance & These Home Safety Tips

Get homeowners insurance and check out these home safety tips.

As you prepare your summer vacation plans, don’t forget to make preparations to protect your home while you’re away. When you head out of town, your home is at a greater risk for burglaries. Protect your home with homeowners insurance and check out these home safety tips to protect your home while you’re on vacation.

Keep the Lights on.

From your porch light to your living room, having the lights on gives the illusion that someone is home which deters burglars for breaking-and-entering. However, leaving them on throughout the night may be a sign that you’re not home too. Set your lights on a time to go on and off at reasonable hours to help keep your home safe.

Install a Security Service Sticker.

While a security service would be a valuable asset when it comes to keeping your home safe, such services are expensive. However, a security service sticker can be a deterrent to burglaries. A burglar has a fifty-fifty chance of the security system being real.

Alert Your Neighbors.

Tell your neighbors that you’ll be out of town. They’ll be able to keep an eye out for any suspicious behavior which can help to keep your home safe. Plus, you can ask your neighbors to pick up your newspaper and mail while you’re away.

Put a Hold on Your Mail.

An overflowing mailbox is a tell-tale sign that you’re out of town. If you’re not comfortable asking a neighbor to get your mail, you can call the post office and put a hold on your mail until you return.
