3 These Steps to Keep Your Home Safe While on Summer


After months of hard work and dedication, it’s time for you and your loved ones to head out to a relaxing destination where you can wind down and relax. But, before you head out, you should take proactive steps to make sure you don’t return to a ransacked home! Not sure where to start? Pronto Insurance has you covered homeowner’s insurance and these three steps.

Tell Someone You Trust

Summer vacations are exciting, and sometimes it can be challenging to keep things under wraps. However, it’s in your best interest to not tell anyone your plans. You should only tell someone you trust about your upcoming trip. In fact, you can even ask them to stop by your
house and:

  • Check your house is safe
  • Pick up your mail
  • Feed your pets
  • Leave a Light On

    Yes, this advice may sound like something your dad would suggest, but he has a point! If your house is left in absolute darkness, it may be a beacon of opportunity to any would-be robbers.
    If you can avoid this issue by leaving your porch lights on (and maybe even a radio), you may do yourself a massive favor.

    Go Social Media Dark

    Would you ever tell the entire world you’ll be away from your home for a few days, giving someone the chance to ransack your valuables? We think not. You should strongly consider:

  • Limiting your social media use while you’re gone.
  • Turning off your location tags on all your social media posts.
  • Waiting to post that fantastic picture of a beach sunset until you return home.
  • Protect Your Home

    Whether you are home, out on a quick errand, or away on a relaxing summer vacation, the one thing your house should not go without is insurance. The right policy can help you navigate:

  • Fires
  • Robberies
  • Destructive weather
