No feeling can be quite as sickening as coming home to find that a break-in has happened and that your valuables have been stolen. Hyman Brown Insurance Agency Inc serving Commerce, GA would like to explain how you can help secure your home against burglary.
Make sure that your windows and doors have effective locks. Also, make sure that your windows are covered with curtains and blinds.
Prune back trees and shrubbery that may provide breaking and entering artist cover as he goes to work trying to gain entrance to your residence. Make sure that your yard is clear of children’s toys and other debris. Store your automobile in the garage.
Make certain that the exterior of your home is well lit. While most burglars work during the day when most people are at work or at school, some will try to gain entrance under cover of darkness.
Invest in a good burglary alarm system. If a burglar is aware that a home is protected, he is more likely to hit a nearby residence that is not.
Make sure that portable valuables such as jewelry are out of sight, preferably in a locked safe.
When your family goes on vacation make sure that your mail and newspaper are held. Nothing says that a home is a prime target for burglary than accumulated mail.
When you are out of the house, consider leaving the television and/or radio on to give the illusion that someone is at home. Invest in motion-sensor-activated lights or program your Alexa device to control your home lighting while you are away if your home is Bluetooth enabled.
Get to know your neighbors. If a neighborhood watch has not already been set up, consider doing so.
