Being burgled can be a very upsetting and discomforting experience. Whether you have been burgled, and or your neighbours have been, you’ll want to prevent it from happening in the future. Read on to find out some ways you can make your home more secure.
The first way to prevent burglary, is to keep your valuables hidden and out of plain sight. Some people recommend putting your car keys close to the door however, so that in case a burglar enters they won’t look around your home for them. This is in the hope of preventing them from vandalising your home, and stealing your belongings, so they will only take your car. Obviously, make sure to keep valuables out of your car, and to have good car insurance so you will be protected.
The best way to know you’re being burgled, and to prevent trespassers is to install house alarms and possibly by investing in a front door camera/ doorbell. Unfortunately, many people don’t do this until they’ve already been burgled. Alarms and cameras are big deterrents, but to optimise your home security to the maximum, consider investing in an electric gate as well if you can.
The next thing to do is to check the security of your locks, and make sure to lock your house every time you go out. Get double glazing if you don’t already so that your windows are not easy to smash. For Evesham Double Glazing, visit www.firmfix.co.uk/. If you go on holiday or will be out of your house for an extended period of time, try to not make it obvious that no one is home. You can ask your neighbours to take your bins out on collection days and leave your car in its usual parking spot if you’re not using it.
