If you are lucky enough to be going on vacation this winter season, be sure to prepare your home for your departure. In addition to dealing with packing, mail delivery and getting ahead at work, you should add ‘home preparation’ to your pre-trip list! When you leave your home unattended in the winter, the risk of your pipes freezing increases. Luckily, there are simple steps you can take before you leave to make sure you return to the fully functioning home you left behind.
A lot of preparation goes into a vacation, and with so much focus placed on where you are going, it can be easy to forget where you are leaving. Don’t forget to prepare your home so you don’t come home to frozen pipes and end your vacation on a sour note. Take these steps to limit the chances of pipes freezing while you are away:
