With everyone getting back to work, school, to pubs and restaurants and even holidays, it means that for the first time in months we will be spending a lot less time at home once again. Although this is great to for us all to be getting back out and about, it is also good news for burglars.
With much more opportunities, we all need to be really aware of how to make sure we keep our homes safe so that we don’t have any nasty surprises to return to.
One of the best ways to keep your home safe is with a good burglar alarm system. This can act as a visual deterrent to burglars, so make sure that it can clearly be seen from the outside of your home, and this will put many would-be thieves off the idea.
It is also important to protect your car. If you have a garage, make sure that you keep your car in it, and get secure garage doors put on from somewhere like this garage doors Taunton based company. If you do not have a garage, make sure that your car has a good security system, and that you never leave any valuables in your car, especially not on display.
Pay attention to the rear of your property – burglars often enter from over gardens as it is much quieter and there is lower risk of them being seen compared to the front of the house. Keep all of your doors and windows closed and locked and take the keys out of the locks too. You could also grow spiky plants around your garden edge to deter anyone trying to climb over.
