When you leave on vacation, there’s always that little voice in the back of your head that worries you. What you come home to an unpleasant surprise? What if would-be burglars can tell you’re not home? Since we all have that worry, here are some easy ways to get your home ready for your trip.
1. Light it Up
Most of us know that the dark homes are the ones more likely to be burglarized. If you’re just out for the evening and not on a trip, leave a couple of lights on (don’t forget the front porch) to make it look like someone’s home. If you’ll be gone for a couple of days or a couple of weeks, use automated timers to control your lights, or have a trusted friend turn them on and off for you.
