The 7 things to do at home before leaving for the holidays

After months of hard work the time has come for long-awaited holidays. A few weeks off and relax to regain energy and rest your body and mind.

Leaving quiet and avoiding inconveniences is necessary, for this reason we offer you a small vademecum to leave your house in order and find it as you greeted it.

1. Clean and disconnect the appliances

Whether you are away for a few days or several weeks it doesn't matter, the first thing to do is to clean the appliances and switch off the electricity . The fridge should be emptied and the freezer defrosted, to prevent the food from spoiling and filling the rooms of your house with bad smells.
Same thing for washing machine and dishwasher: empty them completely open for the entire duration of the holiday.
So why not switch off the electricity throughout the house? The password is security and the best thing to do is to switch off the power.
You do not know what can happen during your stay and the arrival of bad weather could cause major damage to your system (in extreme cases, creating an internal fire).

2. Check water, gas and electricity

We said it in the previous paragraph, but we repeat it: do a to do list of things to "close". For example:
  • unplug all the plugs and the TV antenna . Leaving them connected is dangerous and the risk of your system being damaged is too high, especially if you consider the increasing frequency of summer storms.
  • Turn off all light switches . This is an advice to safeguard your wallet on your return. Having an astronomical bill delivered to you is not the best "welcome back" that can happen to you.
  • Close the gas . You have heard it said 1000 times, but it is the first rule to safeguard your home. Check that you have closed the gas valve because the risks you take are high if you have a leak.
  • Close the water hose . In this case the problem is double: a high bill on your return and the risk of flooding if the sink or shower were to be blocked. To stop the problem from the start we recommend that you close the water hose directly.

3. Close the sink and bidet outlets

We want to prevent insects from rising up the pipes of our bathroom right? Then the advice is to close the drains with the appropriate caps, perhaps after spraying a disinfectant product.
Attention: if, for example, your sink has a constant loss, you absolutely must not close it! As mentioned before you risk creating an artificial lake in your home and ruining the entire floor.

4. Check the operation of the alarm system

Unfortunately, during the summer, the number of thefts in homes increases considerably and the installation of an alarm system is the best solution to avoid unpleasant surprises.
Before leaving, check that it works correctly both inside and outside. This will discourage thieves who want to "come and see you" who, seeing the classic moving light or a device in the open, will be less likely to enter.

5. Leave the keys to the neighbors you trust

If you are afraid of losing your keys during your holidays, you can leave them with a neighbor you trust or a relative who lives near you. The keys are too important and you don't trust them? Leave them your phone number so they can contact you in case of emergency or problems.

6. Hide valuables at home

You will hardly wear gold necklaces and bracelets on holiday, which is why hiding them at home is the best way not to lose them. But be careful: inside the rooms there are lots of places where you can hide precious goods, but they should not be forgotten! Choose a complicated cave to find, but not difficult to remember, otherwise you risk damaging yourself.

7. Protection with a home insurance!

The solution to leave in peace and leave your home in good hands is to take out a special policyInsurance company, always attentive to the needs and needs of consumers, proposes a House and Family policy designed to safeguard not only your home, but also your loved ones. The policy includes:
