June is finally here! The summer is just heating up, and you know what that means: vacation! Soon, you’ll be busting out of the office, heading out of the house, and hitting the open road (or sky), on your way to relaxation with the family. But when you finally do get to the beach, the lake house, or wherever your vacation takes you, the last thing you want on your mind is “What’s happening at home?”
Worry no more! Here is your home security vacation checklist. Complete this list, and you can feel safe knowing that your home is well protected while you’re away.

Outside Your Home:
- Trim your hedges and mow your lawn.
Make sure your home looks taken care of and don't provide a place to hide for any prowlers.
- Put all toys and yard supplies away, especially ladders.
With everything away, you won't be giving potential thieves easy access to items to steal, or ways in your home.
- Move any spare keys that you place outside of your home to a safe location.
- Park your car in the garage if you’re not taking it with you.
An unmoved car outside of your house will be an easy give away that no one is home!
