Burglary Prevention Advice

Burglary can be prevented if you put the necessary mechanisms in place to deter burglars. Below are powerful tips to help you make your house the last place thieves will consider breaking into.

  • Create the impression that you and your family are at home by living the lights and TV on. In addition, you can acquire an audio CD with pre-recorded interior house sounds that play for 24 hours, creating the impression that you and your guests are at home.
  • Lock your doors and windows when leaving your house and before going to bed at night.
  • Use strong heavy doors in the front of your house and at the back. Burglars usually want to spend a minute or two to break in, when they encounter a difficult obstacle, they often back off.
  • Keep your private life private by avoiding posting pictures of your getaway or holiday on social media. When you tell the world on social media that you’re away, you’re practically telling burglars that your house is open for robbery.
  • Consider installing burglar alarms – burglars are always wary of sounds and will run away when sounds start to blare.

Remember, it is better and cheaper to prevent a burglary than to restore your property back to what it was.

The Importance of Lock Maintenance and Security Upgrades

In any mechanical system such as locks, periodic maintenance helps to ensure that the system is working optimally as it should. Several factors such as weather, continuous use, and age affect the performance of your locks and security systems. Because of these performance-limiting factors, you need to carry out maintenance on your locks and upgrade your security periodically.

Many people take the maintenance and upgrade of their home security facilities for granted until their key get jammed and they are locked out, or their home gets robbed, don’t be one of such people. If you need a competent locksmith to maintain your locks periodically and upgrade your security to make your home more secure and prevent break-ins, get in touch with Key Change Locksmiths.
