It’s time for summer vacations! While you’re planning the perfect getaway, also consider what needs to be done to prepare your apartment. Here is a guide on what to do before you leave our apartments in Delray Beach, FL for vacay.
#1 Put Your Mail on Hold
Avoid a pile up of mail by contacting your post office before leaving for vacation. Simply fill out an online form to temporarily put your mail on hold. You can also see if one of your friends is able to pick it up for you that way you can ensure that your mail is safe.
#2 Arrange Pet Care
If you can’t bring your dog or cat with you on vacation, plan for pet care well in advance. Research boarding facilities close to Siena at Tuscany or have a trusted friend or family member watch after your pets. Make a detailed list of when your pet eats, instructions for medications, and any other pertinent information about the care of your pets.
#3 Adjust the Thermostat
Save some money on electricity by adjusting the thermostat and unplugging electronics. Setting the thermostat a little higher than usual means that the air conditioner won’t be on all of the time while no one is home to enjoy it. Unplugging electronics can also prevent the possibility of an electrical fire in your absence.
#4 Clean Up
The two most important things to clean before you leave are dirty dishes and your fridge. Leaving dirty plates in the sink will lead to hard, stuck on food that can possibly attract bugs and vermin. Go through your refrigerator and make sure to throw away any food that will expire before you get back. Finally, take out all trash and recycling before you leave. It also wouldn’t hurt to tidy up your home that way you can come back to a nice clean home and you won’t have to worry about cleaning up on top of unpacking.
