» Posted by on Jan 17, 2020 in Home Maintenance | 0 comments

Everyone feels excited and go bananas whenever they knew that they could have a vacation or when the trip is coming, then the first thing that they would prepare could be the things that they are going to bring. Some might be having a family get together and they need to go somewhere for one week or even for a couple of days and they need to leave the home without someone to look after it. Of course, you need to make sure everything like having a home maintenance before you leave so that when you go back there, it would still be looking nice and no mess to clean as some people would feel tired and it gives them a headache to see dirty things scattered everywhere in the house. It would help you to have a peace of mind and not thinking about the possible things that you could see whenever you go back home sooner or later especially that you don’t have much time after you get back there.  

Of course, it is a good idea that you would check everything aside from cleaning the house like make sure that there is no leak on the surface of the pipes, the windows are in a good condition, and the doors are having the excellent type of knobs and locks. You could make a note or a list that you need to do and to prepare for your house before you leave and you could use this one to check once you are ready to leave the house for the vacation and trips that you are going to have. At least you can focus and refresh your mind from thinking the worries that you might have because of the security features and the chances that someone might get inside of the house or may happen unpleasant incident there.  

FIX THE DAMAGE BEFORE GOING ON VACATION:  

It is nice that before you leave the house, you could have called the repairmen or the handymen to fix the problems at home like the condition of the air conditioner or the wirings to make sure that it would not cause any emergencies and accidents while you are away. You may call the plumber to let them check the pipes and the faucets of the house to make sure that there is no leak as it might give you the trouble especially with the water bill. The same thing with the roofers as they could check the roof top in case that there are some holes there so that they could fix it while the weather is good.  

TURN OFF THE APPLIANCES AND UNPLUG THEM: 

Don’t forget to turn off all the appliances to make sure that it would not cause fire and unplug them as well and better to put down the switch of the overall power.  

SHUT OFF THE MAIN VALVE OF THE WATER:  

The same thing with the water to avoid the water from flowing and would not consume much.  

SECURE THE DOORS WITH THE EXCELLENT LOCKS INCLUDING THE WINDOWS:  

The doors are the most important especially when you have expensive things inside.
