Easy Ways to Protect Your Homes While on Vacation.

Spring is just around the corner, and I'm sure most of you are eager to finally end the long winter chill. With such beautiful weather, and with the kids on a school break, spring is definitely the best time to go on a vacation with the family.

But before you go on that roadtrip or hop on the plane, make sure that your home is safe and secure while your entire family is away. We sure don't want thieves and burglars entering our premises while we're on a Caribbean cruise or basking in the tropical sun. That would be a disaster!

Anyhow, here are some tips to keep your homes safe, and keep those thieves and burglars at bay:
- Never leave a "Hi, we're out-of-town right now, please leave a message and we'll call you back" message on your answering machine. Major no-no! Because really, that translates into "No one's home, come rob our house!"

- Show activity in your home while you're away. Not (exactly) like what Kevin did in Home Alone, but at least have a car parked in your driveway, or keep the lights outside your home on a timer.

- Keep entry points (doors, windows, the garage) closed and locked while you're away. Have them double-checked by a trusty locksmith calgary ab in case there are locks that need to be fixed or replaced.

- Consider rekeying if you're worried that people who may have access to your house keys might try to enter the house while you're away. Rekeying is the process of altering an existing lock so that it may be opened with a new key, rendering the old key useless. This can easily be done by a skilled locksmith calgary sw.

Once you've taken these safety measures, you can now hie off for a vacation with peace of mind.
