Keeping your home safe while you're on holiday.

While you're having a good time on holiday, you want to make sure that your home is going to be safe.

What you should do before you depart-

‪#‎Secure‬ all tools

#Secure all ladders, axes, hammers and saws – anything that will help thieves break into your house.

‪#‎Lock‬ all doors

#Lock all doors and windows, set alarms and use deadbolts. Don’t forget the garage.

‪#‎Leave‬ your curtains open

#Leave your curtains open and your blinds up.

‪#‎Turn‬ off all appliances

‪#‎Make‬ sure you turn off all appliances at the wall to minimise the risk of electrical fires.

‪#‎Prevent‬ leaks by turning off your water

#Prevent leaks by turning off your water. Alternatively, have someone stay at your house or drop in regularly. They won’t be able to stop a pipe leaking or bursting, but they can deal with it sooner.

‪#‎Clean‬ out your fridge

‪#‎Minimise‬ the amount of food you keep in the fridge and freezer while you’re on holiday. That way, less will be lost if there’s a power cut while you’re away.

#Turn down the ring tone on your phone

#Turn down the ring tone on your phone. Long loud unanswered rings are just another way of shouting out, “No-one’s here.”

‪#‎Be‬ careful who you tell

‪#‎Don‬’t advertise your absence on your phone answering machine, sites like Facebook or anywhere else that isn’t secure.

#Leave a number

#Leave an emergency contact number with friends or neighbours.

‪#‎Cancel‬ your newspapers

#Cancel newspapers and other deliveries, so they don't pile up on your doorstep and advertise that you're away.

‪#‎Keep‬ the garden tidy

‪#‎If‬ you are away for an extended period, arrange for someone to come and mow your lawns and tend the garden.

‪#‎Ask‬ a friend to help

#If you’re going to be away for an extended period, you may want to ask a friend to pop over once a week or a neighbour to park in your drive occasionally.

#Ask your neighbours to help

#If you know them well enough, ask them to check on your house for litter, branches that have blown down or pot plants that have fallen over – tell-tale signs you've gone away.

‪#‎Tell‬ neighbours you're going away

#Tell trusted neighbours that you are going away and arrange for them to collect your mail. Nothing says, “No-one’s home!” like an overflowing mailbox.
