Although October is usually associated with pumpkins, autumn, and things that go bump in the night, for everyone at Cloudy2Clear, it’s all about National Home Security Month.
With our homes becoming fuller by the day with technological assets, furniture, and our growing families, it’s vital that security is at the forefront of our minds.
Cloudy2Clear is now an official supporter of National Home Security Month, which means we’re putting our name on something we believe in; ensuring that your home is as safe and sound as it can be.
With our range of services, we can ensure that your locks, hinges, and handles are repaired or replaced in time for Christmas, giving you peace of mind that you’ve made a conscious effort to increase and improve your security, so those precious presents are protected.
Below, we’ve outlined some hints and tips on how to keep your home secure.
A broken or faulty lock is the easiest way for thieves to access your home. By making it easy for criminals to break in, there’s no deterrent. If they try to access your windows and doors and find that they’re all locked, it’s possible that they’ll be discouraged from attempting to break-in further, as this would mean causing a commotion by having to force entry.
Hide your valuables
If possible, think about installing a safe in your home for your more expensive or irreplaceable assets.
Get to know your neighbours
Having a good relationship with those around you on your street or in your building can give you peace of mind when you go on holiday and need someone to keep an eye on your home. Trust needs to be built over time, but if you return the favour, it’s great to know you have someone to rely on.
Leave a light on at night
This can be a massive deterrent to would-be burglars, as they may be more likely to avoid homes which look like they are occupied. Invest in a timer, so you save energy by only having lights come on when you’re not in your home.
