Home Safety Tips

One of the best things about owning a home is knowing that it is a safe place to live. The family is famous, and when you feel like you aren’t safe, there are measures you can take to making your home a safer place to live. What are some of the things you can do to make your home a better place to live for your family?

Store Valuables in safe places

The more that people see valuable items in an accessible area, the more they will be a temptation to people to take. Make sure that you store things of significant value in a safe out of the way place, so people aren’t tempted to take them. Thieves know that people save their most valuable items in certain situations, so upgrade your hiding spots, so they aren’t in the most obvious areas.

Home Security

The people and items in your house are personal and valuable. Make sure that the security system that is protecting them is up to par. Make sure that your home security system is in a place where thieves can see it, and know if it is on or not.

Mail Slot

A mail slot may seem like a convenience, so you don’t miss your mail, but having one leaves you vulnerable to thieves. Having one included on your front door makes it easier to be broken and a way for thieves to sneak in easier.

Car Keys

Keeping your car keys next to your bed is an easy way to keep track of them and less likely for them to get lost. Also, when you are suspicious of a break in, it is a way to deter thieves. If your car has a panic button, you can activate it from right next to your bed, and it is a way to scare thieves from your property in a pinch.

Plants

Plants are something most people don’t think about, but having plants in your yard not only makes it more aesthetically pleasing but can be used a safety barrier against thieves.  Plant some thorny bushes like blackberries or rosebushes near windows to discourage thieves from trying to break-in through your backyard or in your windows.

Neighbors

Many neighborhoods will organize neighborhood watches. They are especially useful to you when you are out of town. Informing a neighbor that you will be out of town, has some benefits. Asking them to remove newspapers, mail or any other items that may gather while you are gone will keep up an illusion that you are home. Many neighbors are also good at helping you watch out for any suspicious activity in the area, will help eliminate break-ins when you are away.

Maintaining the safety of your home is a big priority. Make sure you use these simple tips to keep your home a sanctuary from the world.
