You might want to tell all your friends how excited you are about your Vacation by posting a tweet or updating your status on Facebook. What you are actually doing is announcing that your house will be unattended for a length of time when you are away.
4) Remove Your Spare Key
Criminals will have plenty of time to search for your key whilst you are not there. Then they are free to unlock and leisurely go through the contents of your home.
5) Hit the Lights
Make sure you switch your lights off before you go away to avoid a high electricity bill and also because it will look a little suspicious if your bedroom light is blazing through the night for a week or so. You can purchase a special light switch or lamp timer which will come on and switch off according to a specific time. This will make it appear like you are in the house when it gets darker during the evening. Better to be safe than sorry?
Unplug appliances in case of power surges. Save yourself some money as well by switching off.
7) Keep the Hot Water Flowing
If you’re going away in the winter time, your pipes could freeze up if they do not get warmed up once in a while. Just make sure the heating comes on for a couple of hours a day or ask a friend to pop round for a shower to avoid a costly problem when you get home.
