Heading South for a Holiday?

Tags: Heading South for a Holiday?

The wind, surf and sea are calling many of us to go on a tropical vacation this time of year. We leave our home behind and sometimes our pets as well. It is a great idea to have someone in charge of your home and your pets while you are gone away. Here is a checklist of some of the things that can help: 
1. Have your special someone pick up your mail and check on your pets daily.
2. Have someone in charge to ploughing your driveway after each snow storm,
3. Put timers on your lights so that they come on at alternate times during the day and night. This creates an illusion that someone is occupying the home and helps to prevents break-ins.
4.Check with your insurance company to find out how often someone has to attend to your home during your absence in order for your insurance to still be effective.
