10 tips to prepare your home before the holidays

Considering the time of the year we are in, it is only natural to think about planning a holiday. However, to be able to fully enjoy your holiday without any worries, it is necessary to follow a series of home security recommendations. These ten tips will be very useful for you.

1. Make sure you have turned off the water and gas valves. Special attention should be paid if you have an electric water heater at home. After all, this is a large water tank so there is always a risk that it will explode. When you are at home, this problem would be easy to detect. Also, switching the gas supply off will help prevent leaks in the pipes.

2. Disconnect all electronic appliances except the refrigerator. All non-vital household appliances must be disconnected. On the one hand, it will reduce energy consumption and, on the other hand, it will prevent short circuits or similar problems.

3. If the refrigerator is unplugged, leave its door open. This will prevent mould or condensation from occurring. There should only be non-perishable food left inside the fridge.

4. Do not close the blinds completely. Leave them ajar to give the impression that there is someone inside.

5. Do not let your plants die. Put away the awnings and use water tanks that humidify the environment so your plants can get plenty of light and water.
