Traveling this holiday season? Here are a few tips to keep your home safe while you're away:
•Put entry door lights on photocell timer to keep unwanted visitors away.
•Shut off main water supply to the home. Plumbing disasters can cost you thousands.
•Unplug computers, TVs and video equipment. Power surges from bad storms can destroy devices.
•Unplug toasters, irons, hair curlers etc. Even though you turned appliances off, it is better to unplug and be sure an electrical surge cannot create a fire hazard in these heat generating appliances.
•Tell a trusted neighbor of your plans and give contact info.
Have carefree fun where ever you go this holiday season!
