Now that you’ve finished planning that trip, it’s time to sit back, relax and wait for your departure date to arrive. Except there’s one more thing to remember: securing your home. If you’ll be away for longer than a day or two, you’ll want to take the proper precautions to ensure you empty home is nice and secure. Of course, we’d all love to think the best of the people in or near our community and assume that none of these individuals would pose a threat to our belongings, but it doesn’t hurt to be extra careful anyway. It only takes a few simple steps to increase your home’s level of safety.
