Do you worry about your home when you on holiday?
Jul 1, 2017
Worrying whether your property will be well protected whilst you are away. You shouldn’t need to worry!
Below are a few tips to help make sure your home is protected and to help you relax.
Ask a friend or neighbour to call round and keep an eye on your home
Give a family member or a friend a key and ask them if they would be kind enough to keep an eye on your property and even close the curtains on an evening and open them again in the morning.
Join your local Neighbourhood Watch scheme
Neighbourhood Watch schemes are designed to reduce crime in communities. If you join a group then has a member you will be expected to keep an eye on the area and should report any suspicious activities. This also means that other people in the group will be keeping an eye on your area whilst you are away.
Make sure your windows and doors are fully locked with any key locking systems or bolts. If you have old windows and doors they may not be as secure as they once were and you may need to think about upgrading to the latest, sophisticated locking systems on the market today. This is not just for whilst you go on holiday but to protect your property all year round.
Install an alarm system
Buy a British Standard approved alarm system and have it fitted by a specialist.
Don’t publicise your holiday
Everyone looks forward to their holidays and most of us at some point have posted a picture on social media whilst we are sat in the airport or check in at the hotel. This publicises the fact that your home will be empty for a week or two. Try not to let everyone know that you are not home!
