Prevention steps are easy and practical so you can minimize the chances of your home being burglarized.
Prevention if usually better than cure. Before you rent or buy a home or an apartment, get to know the neighborhood. Talk to residents; ask about burglaries and other crimes in the locality. Being aware of what has been happening in the area should be a priority.
Bellow are some tips:
* If possible, have a security expert evaluate the home. Many police departments will do a security check of your home at no cost. You will often be alerted to problems you didn’t know existed.
* Don’t hide keys outside the house for fear of being locked out. Getting our locksmith to open your door is a whole lot cheaper than losing valuables because a burglar discovered your hidden keys!
* Where possible, team up with a neighbor and hold one set of each other’s keys. That way you have a spare set of keys available should the need arise.
* Trim bushes around your house before they grow enough to easily hide an intruder.
* Having good lighting around your home or apartment complex is an important factor in deterring intruders. Check the bulbs or the lighting and if you find it is inadequate, address the issue
* If you have windows accessible using fire escapes or directly from the ground, they should not open wide enough to let a person in. A screw built into the frame can accomplish this. There are other very effective stops also available. Of course, you should be able to escape in the event of a fire.
* There are anti-lift devices available that can prevent an entire window or sliding door lifted out of its frame. If you do not install them, thieves may make locks irrelevant by lifting the window or door.
