4 Tips to Protect Your Nashville Home Before Going on Vacation

7/14/2017 (Permalink)

Follow these tips to leave the stress behind before you leave on vacation!

Heading to the beach? Hear the ocean calling? Or maybe it's a retreat into the mountains or a fishing trip to the lake? Maybe a journey overseas to a magical destination or resort town? If you choose to take a vacation this year (and we definitely think you should!), it is important to remember to protect your home before going on vacation. Here are 4 tips to protect your home before going on vacation from SERVPRO of Belle Meade.

Tip #1: Install Security Cameras Outdoors and Indoors that Use a WIFI Network

By installing security cameras outdoors and indoors that use a WIFI network, you can check on your home while you are gone. You can also receive notifications if anyone attempts to break into your home. This will allow you to notify authorities and to also have footage of the incident with photographs and videos of those responsible. This is generally a good idea for use when you are home as well.

Tip #2: Home Maintenance Should Be Completed

It might be tempting to put off that latest home maintenance project until you return, but you never know what will happen while you are gone. By not fixing your small air conditioner unit problem, the whole unit may fail while you are gone and cause hot temperatures that destroy beloved items or injure pets staying inside the home. By not fixing your outdoor gutter, a storm may come along and knock the whole gutter off. By not fixing small home maintenance problems before you leave, you leave your home vulnerable and invite bigger disasters.

Tip #3: Cleaning Your Home Will Make Coming Home More Inviting

This one isn't a "necessity," but it can make a world of difference when you return from your trip and find your home clean and inviting. SERVPRO of Belle Meade offers cleaning solutions that can leave your home dust-free and ready for your return. Don't leave dirt to collect.

Tip #4: Don't Share That You are on Vacation on Social Media

It might be tempting to share those luxury photos of your feet in the sand or your smiling family out boating on the open water, but by sharing vacation photos on social media while you are on vacation you open yourself up to burglars. Share as many vacation photos as you want, but wait until you get back home.

At SERVPRO of Belle Meade, we recognize the importance of taking a little time for yourself and leaving the world behind by going on a vacation. Let us help you take care of your home projects before you leave. We are trusted by Nashville realtors, homeowners, business owners, construction companies, disaster cleanup crews, and building managers. SERVPRO of Belle Meade is proud to serve the Nashville area.
