School holiday security
With the school holidays approaching it is a good time to think about home security, especially if you are going away. It is a sad fact that burglars love the holidays and are always on the lookout for empty properties. So if you are going away think about how you can keep your home safe. A house sitter is a great idea and certainly getting trusted neighbours to keep an eye on things and empty your post box is worthwhile.
Setting lights and radios to come on with timers is a great idea and did you know that it is possible to install electric curtain closers that you can set on timers to open and close your curtains or blinds to give burglars the impression that someone is home. Lastly make sure that your window and door locks are in good condition and strong enough to discourage a burglar. Then you can head of on holiday without worry.
