Whether you’re looking forward to a trip to the beach for Spring Break or a visit with your family over the summer, we want to make sure that your home is safe while you’re away. There are several precautions you can take before you travel to help prevent your home from burglary.

One of the most important keys to keeping your home safe is with functioning, quality locks. Make sure that all of your locks are working well and that you are in the habit of locking your home when you leave. In addition to that, don’t hide a spare key in an obvious place like under your doormat or in a flower pot.

Lighting is another important element of home safety. Before you go on vacation, be sure to leave exterior lighting on; there are even lighting options available where you can set your lights to come on at a certain time. It’s also a good idea to keep a light or two on inside your home as well.

It’s also a great idea to get to know your neighbors and find some that you can trust. That way, when you go away, they can keep an eye out on your home for you, and vice versa. You can even ask them to pick up your mail and newspapers for you while you’re out of town.
