After all these snowstorms, how many of you are ready to take that winter vacation? Whether it’s to the mountains or to the seashores, taking the time to prepare your home for your absence can prevent a potential disaster from happening while you are away.

Here is a checklist to help you prepare your home:

  • Arrange for someone to plow or shovel so that your home appears occupied
  • Turn the thermostat down to 60 and leave interior doors open to circulate air
  • Put your lights on automatic timers and consider an outdoor motion detector
  • Make sure that all windows and doors are locked
  • Have a trusted neighbor or friend pick up your mail and newspapers every day, or suspend delivery
  • Purge the refrigerator of perishables and take out your trash and secure it
  • Run a computer backup and then turn it off
  • Ask a trusted neighbor or friend to keep an eye on your place and leave a key with them
  • Conduct a home inventory and make sure your homeowner insurance policy is up-to-date

These simple preparations will give you peace of mind while you are enjoying your winter get-a-way. For a review of your Homeowners insurance, please feel free to contact us at 888-850-9400.
