The last thing you will want is to someone breaking in to your house and stealing all your valuables while you are out. It is a common problem for many but with a few tricks you can make sure you house is free from robbery, well at least from a simple robber. After a few intense reading on the internet this is what I found.
Locking the doors and windows. Make it a habit before you go to bed to make sure to check all the doors and windows of the house that leads outside to be locked. This includes the balcony doors and windows and the garage doors as well. I have know people who leave their balcony doors unlocked because for most reasons they forgot. So making it habit to have a walk around the house will save you a lot. Installing metal clad doors Melbourne can help tighten security at your home.
A security door price might not be expensive but it proivdes high security. This includes even adding a metal bar on a window to prevent robbers from easily jumping in to a room through a window.
Add a security alarm for when you are not at home. It is really good investment if you are in a area where robberies happen quite often. When you are expecting a delivery do not leave notes at the doorstep saying, “I’m not at home. Leave the package at the doorstep.” It is like leaving a note saying I am not at home you can rob my house if you want to. The best thing to do is to call the delivery agent if you have a number or tell your neighbor to keep an eye out for a delivery guy.
People tend to leave spare keys just in case a relative come. I would say not to leave the spare at very obvious places like under the mat or inside the flower pot on the right of the door. You probably avoid the whole thing. Robbers knows this, and will definitely check if there is a spare key somewhere hidden. The best thing you can do is to give a spare key to the neighbor. You could tell them that you are expecting your family over and if they come before you do to give them the key. Simple as that.
Well, these are small things that give robbers the chance at a making a profit from your house. Always think like a bugler and cover all the ways you could break in if you were one.
