Preparing Your Home for an Extended Vacation

Last updated 6 years ago

Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, leaving your home for an extended period of time requires some extra preparation. In between planning for Orlando airport parking and boarding your animals, use the following tips to keep your home safe and ready for you to return.

  • Take Care of the Mail

Depending on the length of your trip, you have to somehow find a way to keep your mail from piling up in the mailbox. If you are only going for a few weeks, you might want to consider asking a neighbor to handle it for you. If you are leaving for at least a month, try to temporarily have your mail forwarded by the U.S. Postal Service to your vacation destination.

  • Ask Someone to Check In

It is always a good idea to ask someone to check on the condition of your home when you will be away for a long time. Having someone go into the house can dissuade potential burglars. It also shows you that your house is still in good condition. Your friend can make sure everything is working, and if there is a problem, they can let you know. When you do not have to worry about your house, you can enjoy the vacation.

  • Shut Off the Water

When you are planning to travel for months at a time, you should consider shutting off your household’s water. By turning off the water, you will not have to pay for a service that you are not using. You can also prevent any issues with pipes bursting or other kinds of floods that could ruin your vacation.
