Security & Maintenance Tips for Looking After a Vacant Cottage or Home

Posted on Wed, Oct 14, 2020 @ 02:16 PM

With the pandemic, many property owners in central Ontario have not been able to visit their cottages very often during the season. If your property is periodically vacant, security is a top of mind issue. An unoccupied or vacant property faces an increased risk when it comes to potential damage such as water damage, heating/electrical system damage and vandalism.

One thing you can do is to make sure your propane supplier has your current phone number, mailing address and email, should they need to contact you about your tank or service. Also provide them with an emergency/ alternative contact in case you are out of reach.

Mechanical failure and power outages can cause heating systems to shut down, and if that happens during the winter it can cause a big problem. Cold weather can cause pipes to freeze and burst, and if no one is around to respond considerable damage can be done. So keep that in mind for this winter.
