It’s finally summer!!!! Most high schools are already closed and elementary schools will close this week for summer…. It also Canada Day long weekend at the end of the week.

Many of you may have already planned time off, to go on vacation with the kids or spend time at your cottage, and you would want to make sure that your home is protected, while you are away. Here are a few tips that will be helpful to protect your home:

  1. Have someone check on your home regularly and pick up mail, flyers and newspapers; items that you can’t put a stop delivery on.
  2. Ask them to also mow the lawn or shovel the driveway, and put out the garbage if you can.
  3. If you post pictures of your holiday fun, make sure your security settings on you social media platforms are set so that only people you trust will see them. Check that your kids are also discreet!
  4. If you have a spare key hiding outside somewhere, be sure to remove it.
