Around Christmas time, the rate of burglaries increases. The lure of expensive gifts in people’s homes attracts burglars, so at this time of the year it is particularly important to make sure that your home is secure from break ins.
Here are some of the things you can do to keep your home safe from burglars and make sure that you and your household have a safe and happy Christmas…
Make sure all Doors and Windows are Secure – At this time of the year, life can get very hectic and it is easy to forget things. But do make sure that you keep all doors and windows locked in your home, even if they are high up – you will be surprised at how a determined burglar can get in.
Use Security Systems – Using cameras and alarms such as these from CCTV Manchester based company Red Dam is not only a good way to ensure you can protect your home, but they also act as a visual deterrent to burglars.
Keep an eye on your Rubbish – It is very common for thieves to have a root through rubbish to see of there is anything of value in the home. When disposing of packaging from expensive items, be careful of where you are keeping it – if possible, it is best to keep it stored in the home until the day your bins are collected.
