A good way to keep your valuables safe is to keep them locked away.
For your peace of mind, if you have a basement, an office or a closet that can be locked, it would be best to store your belongings there.
You might prefer to carry small valuables, such as jewelry, on your person.
Regarding larger valuables that are not easy to carry, the biggest risk would be that your guests may break them. You can ask your guests beforehand to avoid touching or using them, or you could even leave a "Do not touch" note, or cover them with a blanket.
Finally, the best way to protect your valuables is to choose your guests wisely:
- Take all the time you need to get to know the people who would like to stay at your place as you exchange messages through the platform.
- Give priority to verified members.
- Give priority to guests with positive reviews.
- Give priority to guests that have a similar lifestyle to you.
For example: If you have a porcelain collection in your living room, it would be advisable to avoid hosting families with kids. If you're worried about your musical instruments, it may be better to choose guests that share a passion for those instruments.
