Vacationing In Peace
Vacations Are Much Needed
Whether you are leaving town for a few days or a few weeks, make sure to have a plan in place to keep your home safe. Vacationing can be fun, but coming home to a house in one piece is even better. There is always a possibility of flooding and water damage in your home when you are away.
A Reliable Neighbor
Considering having someone available to check on your home while you are away. A good rule of thumb would be to have a family member, close friend, or trusted neighbor check on your home every other day. They are able to check on your major appliances associated with water, such as the dishwasher, washing machine, and water heater.
If you are out of town for more than a week, it might be a good idea to turn off your sprinkler system. The person you have asked to check in on your house can hand water your plants and lawn in the meantime. A broken sprinkler head while you are away, has the potential to cause a lot of water damage, if it is in close proximity to your home.
Another option is to set up a low-cost security camera in a few main rooms of your house to check for water damage while you are away. Having one in the kitchen and one set up to view your water heater is a great way to give yourself peace of mind while you are gone. Security cameras for outside and inside the home are very popular today, so it should be easy to find one at an affordable cost.
