Home for the holidays or not? If you plan on traveling during this holiday season, then make sure that your home is secure before you leave. 49th Street Bail Bonds offers these tips on keeping your home safe when traveling:
- Make sure to lock your doors and windows. Sounds basic, but many people forget to do this in a rush to get out the door and on their way.
- Don’t post your travel plans on social media. Save the photos and travel stories until you return home.
- Make your home look lived in even when you aren’t there. Have the mail picked up, newspaper delivery stopped, and lights on timers (or on that new automation system that you got for Christmas).
- Be careful of the boxes that you leave outside of your home after the holidays. Many thieves will peruse the trash to see what high-ticket items are located within. Once you leave, boom, your high-ticket items will depart too!
- If you have a security system, then arm it.
- Let a trusted neighbor know that you will be gone. Have them check on your home.
- Keep your Christmas gifts out of sight. Open drapes with goodies like an iPad, camera, and gaming system on display are just begging to be stolen.
- Keep your home well-lit. Remove any ladders that might give thieves easy access to the second floor.
