When you leave for your annual summer vacation, whether it’s to the cottage or further afield, the last thing you want to do is worry about your house while you’re gone. By taking some time to prepare your home while you’re away, you can rest easy and enjoy your vacation!
1) Mow your lawn – This isn’t just important for keeping your house looking great, but if your lawn grows too much while you’re away, it can tell people that your house is unoccupied and risk intruders.
2) Turn off your water supply – While this is most important when leaving your home for an extended period of time during the winter, pipes can burst at any time. If no one is home to notice the water leak, it could mean major damage to your home by the time you return.
3) Check the weather – Checking the weather can help you determine if you need to do any other quick jobs around the house to prepare your home for a storm, like clearing the gutters.
