  • Top 3 Security Tips For Your Home While You’re On Vacation

    [caption id="attachment_9388" align="alignleft" width="300"]Keep The Burglars Out! Keep The Burglars Out![/caption]

    Getting ready for that summer vacation you've been waiting for since the snow melted? Do you have your checklist together? Make sure you pack some extra money, sunblock, your cell phone charger...and don't forget to make sure your house is secure! As a house sitter this week, I thought it would be smart to take a look at some home security tips when a family is out of the house. Interested in hiring your Cleveland Contractors and Home Mechanics to secure your house for you? Give us a call to setup an estimate:

    10: Consider Hiring a House-or Pet-Sitter

    The best way to make sure your house is safe while you're gone is to have someone you trust still living in it. You may be lucky enough to have a tidy and conscientious relative who'll move in temporarily and water the plants, feed the pets and pick up the newspapers. If not, there are services you can use for house-sitting and pet-sitting while you're away. This can be a pricy option, but it's a solution that touches all the bases.

    9: Hold Your Mail

    When you're leaving for more than a couple of days, call your local post office to stop mail delivery until you get back. They can hold mail from three to 30 days. In many locations, you can even submit a stop mail request online. Just enter your address and stop and start dates. This is a free feature courtesy of your friendly United States Postal Service.

    8: Stop Newspaper Delivery

    A pile of yellowing newspapers on the doorstep is a movie cliché for a home that's unoccupied. Stopping the newspaper when you leave town for a while is an easy detail to forget and one that will make you a sure target. If you're still reading newsprint, make sure you stop service when you leave on vacation.
