Home Protection Tips

Post by Mary Bedson

B Before leaving for a vacation, there are a few things that one needs to do to make sure that their home is protected from burglary, vandalism, or other crime. It doesn’t matter what quality of neighborhood one lives in, when not at home, everyone is vulnerable to the dangers of crime.

The first thing to do is to make sure that all doors and windows are locked and secure. Most people that are robbed tend to find that they forgot to lock their windows, which are just as easy to enter as doors. The next thing to do is to make sure that neighbors know that you will be gone. That way, if they see anyone that looks like they are trying to enter your house, they know that it is a crime in progress and they can then call the police. Neighbors can be a great asset to knowing that your home is safe. If one does not have any neighbors, perhaps try and get someone to stop by the house several times while away, that way, one can be sure that the home is at least being monitored by someone. Of course, the last thing to do is to make sure that one’s alarm equipment is set before leaving. This is often the last and best line of defense against burglary and other crime.
