Even if you can't afford a fancy alarm system there is no reason you should be vulnerable to break ins. There are many easy ways to better protect your property with a bit of common sense. Our expert locksmith Rotherham has this advice for you!
Keep your bushes and hedges around your property trimmed so you do not provide a hiding place for burglars while they try and get in.
Make sure your garden is well lit.
Ensure your home does not look unlived in - leave lights on a time switch when you go out or on holiday. Have someone you trust pop in when you are away, take the post and milk in and clear your path.
Redirect calls to your mobile phone as many burglars try to call first to be sure no one is home.
Don't announce your holiday plans in public - you never know who may be listening.
Have a locksmith survey your property's security measures and give you advice on how to upgrade your security.
