EVENT: Prep your home for a long stay away

Unoccupied homes in Florida are prime targets for mildew growth, storm damage, pests and a host of other issues. This free class April 16 will show you how to prepare your home — inside and out — before leaving for a long time. A checklist will be provided to help you remember key tasks. Register early through to reserve your spot and receive notice of any changes.

Instructor: Dr. Maria Portelos-Rometo, UF/IFAS Extension Sarasota County family and consumer sciences agent
