#3 - Don’t turn the thermostat OFF -

It’s extremely common, maybe a “force of habit,” for people to walk around their home before they leave, unplugging things and turning everything else to “off,” with the assumption that they’re doing the right thing.  For the most part they are, but not when it comes to the thermostat.  Keeping in mind that your indoor temperature should remain anywhere between 65-75 degrees with a relative humidity level between 30%-50%, setting your homes thermostat to turn on if/when the temperature has a drastic change, is a crucial and completely necessary step in preventing damage to your floors while you're away.  Your thermostat should be thought of as your single and only line of defense to unwanted floor damage and buckling while you're away.

#2 - Keep your windows closed: We know this sounds kind of obvious, but you may be surprised at how many people forget to close a window completely, or keep their skylights ajar when they leave. Unfortunately, we’ve seen this happen; a client left two back windows open by mistake, unaware of the impending driving rain, and came home from vacation to discover their floors have buckled! So make sure you put “Close Windows”on your checklist of “Things-to-do Before we leave.”

#1 - Check the weather:

We understand that your main focus for the weather forecast is probably on your vacationing spot and not so much on what’s going to happen back home.  However, taking note of the weather forecast is a great first step in preparing your plan for home maintenance while on your trip.  We all know how unpredictable temperature and humidity can be, especially here in the Northeast, so making sure you’re prepared is an important part in the maintenance of your homes climate, and ensuring no damage comes to your floors.  Drastic temperature and humidity changes really do affect flooring, no matter what type of floor covering you have, most materials react to their climate, expanding or contracting; thats why acclimation is such an important part of the installation process.  Maintaining interior temperature and humidity levels are still important, even when you’re not home.
