How to Travel-Proof Your Apartment Before Going on Vacation

You should always make sure to travel-proof your apartment before going on vacation.

At Prescott Square Apartments, our apartment community can often feel like your own personal resort. However, we know that summertime is the best time to travel away from your community and hit the shore with your family and friends. Labor Day Weekend is approaching, and many will be heading on vacation for one last weekend of the summer. Before you start to pack your bags into your car and hit the road, you should always make sure to travel-proof your apartment. This means keeping all of your windows and doors locked, turning off your electronics, unplugging any kitchen appliances, and much more. Read on to learn how you can travel-proof your apartment space to secure your belongings and keep your apartment safe while you’re not home!

Travel-Proof the Apartment by Securing Windows and Doors

Anytime you head out for vacation, it is important to secure your apartment unit to keep all of your belongings safe. You will want to secure your apartment’s balcony or patio doors and make sure that each window is tightly locked and closed. While the Apartments of Wildewood prides itself on being a safe, family-friendly apartment complex, it is always important to secure your home for the ultimate protection of your belongings while you are away on vacation. Also, locking up your apartment could keep humid drafts outside while maintaining a calm and consistent temperature indoors.

Arrange and Care for Your Pets Before Vacation

You will also want to arrange the right care for all of your pets while you are away. Although the Apartments of Wildewood is a pet-friendly apartment, we do recommend arranging care for your pets, whether through a family member who could house them while you’re away or from a board and care service. This will help ensure that your fuzzy friend has company while you are gone, your apartment is always safe, and your pets are taken care of by responsible individuals.

Unplug Your Electronic Appliances and Devices Before Heading on Vacation

Lastly, it is important to unplug your electronic devices and any kitchen devices that are at risk for starting an electrical fire while you are away. We highly recommend unplugging any alarm clocks, coffee makers, crockpots, toaster, or electrical devices that will not be in use while you’re away. This can help secure and protect your apartment unit while you’re away, and you can have additional peace of mind about the overall safety of your Prescott Square apartment unit.
