When you leave your home you probably want to leave knowing that it is as secure as you can possibly make it. You want to feel like you’ve done all you can to keep your family and belongings safe. We have some advice on how to make your home a hard target for thieves.
One of the biggest factors in making your home a harder target is to make sure everything is securely closed and locked. Make sure all of your windows are closed and all of your doors are not only closed but that all of the locks are actually working. The main door of your whole house is probably your garage door. The strange thing is that a lot of people don’t actually test their garage door to see how easy/hard it is to open. They also don’t keep the door that goes from the garage into the house locked. These are huge steps to take to ensure you are in fact leaving your house as safe and secure as you can.
It is also smart to not only check the locks on all of your exterior doors but to have someone come and actually test your garage doors security features. This will help you to know that your garage doors is not only securely closed and locked but that it is running perfectly and won’t break down and put you in the position of having a broken and vulnerable garage door for the time before it gets fixed. Be proactive about your safety!
