Pre-Vacation Apartment Checklist


Summer break is here and it’s finally time to relax, kick back, and consider taking a trip somewhere! I love to travel and I usually try to squeeze in as many little trips each year as possible, even if they are just short overnight ones. With Gainesville being such a short distance from the Florida coast, it’s easy to make a weekend trip to the beach this summer. Or maybe you’re planning something more extended, like a trip overseas. Either way, it’s said that planning is really half the fun – picking where to go, buying new clothes, and planning what you’ll do on vacation. One of the most important parts of your preparation is making sure your apartment is ready to be unoccupied for the duration of your trip.

  • Close and lock all of your windows
  • Notify your landlord or property manager that you will be out of town and inform them of the dates
  • Turn your thermostat to an energy saving temperature while you’re away
  • Clean out your refrigerator
  • Take out the trash
  • Wash the dishes
  • Do laundry
  • Close the blinds or curtains
  • Unplug any electronics that could be damaged by a power surge
  • Don’t forget to lock the door!
