You’re working through your checklist in the week leading up to your big trip. Pack your clothes, notify work, and it’s now time to get your apartment in order before the big day. A well-prepared apartment means you don’t have to worry while you’re gone, so why not follow these tips and tricks for making sure you have prepped your Landmark Lofts & Garden home no matter if it storms or if you decide to extend your trip to enjoy the holiday away a bit longer.

Make Arrangements for Pets and Get a Housesitter

Give yourself peace of mind while you’re away. Ensure you’ve made arrangements well in advance for your precious furry friend. You can also opt for a housesitter. A house sitter is a great way to make sure your home is well looked after while you’re away. Most people jump at the opportunity for a stay at someone else’s home for a bit too. Win-win!

Tidy Up Your Apartment Before Leaving

There’s nothing worse than coming back to a messy apartment after a long journey home. The last thing you want to do is embark on a list of chores, so save yourself the headache and give your apartment a deep clean before you head off. Preparing for cold weather is essential here, too — having a house sitter ensures your pipes won’t freeze while you’re gone, making sure you have nice warm water to return to after your trip.

Prepping Your Apartment for Long Leaves

Going on vacation should be an exciting time. The last thing you want to do is stress about your home and beloved pets while you’re away, so take these steps to make sure you’re as prepared as possible before you embark on your trip away. You’ll be so glad you did upon your return!
