As we head into summer many of us look forward to getting away on holiday for a week or two. This is an exciting time, and it is great to go away for that well earned break, but before you go, you should consider your home security.
Many people sadly go away on holiday each year, only to come back to a home that has been broken into by burglars. Not only is this a horrible way to get back to your home, but it also means that you will have likely lost many valuable items, and the feeling of your home being invaded can be very traumatising.
Here are some of the things that can make your home safer, so that you can go away with the feeling of your home being safe when you are gone…
Get an Alarm and Cameras – Keep an eye on your home wherever you are by using cameras that you can watch via your phone. An alarm system is also a really good deterrent.
Remember to Secure your Garage – As well as your home, make sure that your garage is safe. If your door is not as safe as it should be, get a professional like this garage doors Bristol based company to replace it, and use motion sensor lighting around the garage.
Ask a Trusted Friend or Neighbour to Pop in – Burglars will often be on the lookout for signs of an empty home, so having someone who can go and do things that make the home look lived in is really good. Parking a car on the drive, opening and closing the curtains and collecting the post are all things that help.
