If you take off for a little while for vacation—or even for work—you could be leaving your home unprotected and open to thieves. That’s not to say you shouldn’t travel—just that you might put some thought into protecting your home while you’re away. At Treasure Coast Window Fashions serving Jupiter, Florida, we know how unnerving it can be to travel if you aren’t sure your home is secure. That’s why we’re offering a few tips to help reduce that stress. Read on to find out!
Lock It Up
While many people enjoy a home security system, not everyone is able to use one. So even though that would be the ideal, it might not be in the cards for you. So your first step is the obvious one: be sure to lock up. In addition to locking every external door, be sure that your windows are all firmly latched. And if you have a garage door opener, think about disconnecting it while you’re away. Also, if you’ve asked a friend to check on your place (which is a good idea), hand them the key in person versus mailing it to them, to ensure it doesn’t fall in the wrong hands.
Only Tell Necessary People About Your Trip
These days, folks like to keep in touch and share news via social media. Which has been a great deal of fun, but it can also be a breeding ground for ne’er-do-wells. So when it comes to any upcoming travel, it’s best to keep mum ahead of your departure and while you’re away to help ensure the general public isn’t aware. Also, ask the postal service to hold your mail so it doesn’t build up in your box, or have that friend pick it up as often as possible (daily is best).
Let Your Windows Do the Trick
Did you know you can use your window treatments to trick people into thinking you’re home?
