What are some best pre-vacation things to do before leaving for a vacation?

If you want to keep your home safe you need to cross off a number of things on your pre-vacation list. If you don’t do so your house may be at risk or even if you can’t stay satisfied throughout your trip, you are always worried about your home. House cleaning Bothell has some tips that will help you cross out a few of the things off your checklist before you head out for a trip.

  1. A week before

When house cleaning you should pre-plan everything from what you require to what things need to be done ahead of time.   

  • Keep your mail delivered or ask someone to pick it up for you 

  • Keep the delivery of your newspapers.

  • Organize pet sitter or doghouse

  • Pay your bills

  • Check the supply of toiletries / equipment / clothing - purchase new items if necessary

  • Upload reading materials: buy magazines and books, take books out of the library, download books 

  • Order and collect a drug refill if it runs out on the go

  • Inform your friends and family about the travel itinerary.

  • Plan a trip to the airport or book a parking space 


  1. A day before 

During house cleaning, obviously you can’t pack all the things that you require for the trip ahead of time, so you can do that sort of packing a day before.  

  • Discard perishable foods from the refrigerator, as well as any fruits / vegetables that could go wrong while out

  • Call the bank to inform them that you are traveling

  • Run the dishwasher

  • Pack everything in your suitcase and hand luggage


  1. On the day of leaving
