The first month of the Australian summer brings the holiday vibes along with the summer heat.
Bustling activities from Christmas fairs to music festivals will soon fill in our December calendar, coupled with quick getaways to the beach to cool off and breathe in the fresh sea breeze. You might have already planned a week-long holiday. But have you secured a home when you go away this holiday season?
1. Check Your Pipes For Potential Leaks
2. Unplug your Gadgets and Appliances
Plus tip: If a member of the family will be left behind for some reason, prepare a note to guide them to where the circuit breakers and shutdown valves are, in case of emergency.
3. Tidy Up Your Home Yard Before Going To Holidays
4. Test Your Security System
Check if the batteries in your smoke alarm are still working. If not, replace them immediately. Make sure that your security cameras are running and that the alarm system is working properly. If you have a monitored alarm system, contact your provider that you would not be home on the given dates.
There is nothing wrong with being extra careful in keeping your home safe from plumbing disasters, fire, and burglary. If you need an electrician to upgrade your home security system or need a professional plumber to fix your broken pipes or blocked drains, contact us to book an appointment. Your local plumbers and electricians at the Plumbing and Electrical Doctor will be delighted to secure your home these holidays.
Do not let these things ruin your holiday cheer!
