After months of hard work, the time has come for the longed-for holidays. A few weeks of detachment and relaxation to regain energy and rest body and mind.
Leaving peacefully and avoiding inconveniences is necessary, for this reason, we offer you a small handbook to leave your home in order and find it as you greeted it.
Whether you are away for a few days or several weeks, it does not matter, the first action to take is to clean the appliances and disconnect them from the electricity. The fridge must be emptied and the freezer defrosted, to prevent the food from spoiling and filling the rooms of your home with bad smells.
Same thing for washing machines and dishwashers: empty them and keep them open for the entire duration of the holiday.
But why not disconnect the electricity throughout the house? The watchword is safety and the best thing to do is to turn off the power.
You do not know what can happen during your stay and the arrival of bad weather could cause significant damage to your system (even creating an internal fire in extreme cases).
We said it in the previous paragraph, but we repeat it: make a to-do list of things to “close”. For instance:
We want to prevent insects from climbing up the pipes of our bathroom right? So 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 leak, you absolutely must not close it! As mentioned before, you risk creating an artificial lake in your house and ruining the whole floor.
Unfortunately, during the summer, the number of burglaries in homes increases significantly and the installation of an alarm system is the best solution to avoid unpleasant surprises.
Before leaving, check that it works properly both indoors and outdoors. This will discourage thieves who want to “come and find you” who, seeing the classic moving light or a device placed outdoors, will be less enticed to enter.
If you are afraid of losing your keys during your vacation, you can leave them with a neighbor you trust or a relative who lives near you. Are the keys too important and you don’t trust them? Leave them your phone number so they can contact you in case of an emergency or problem.
You will hardly take gold necklaces and bracelets on vacation, which is why hiding them at home is the best way not to lose them. But be careful: inside the rooms, there are many places where you can hide precious goods, but they should not be forgotten! Choose a cave that is complicated to find, but not difficult to remember, or else you risk doing yourself harm.
