How To Secure Your Home Before Christmas Vacation?
Updated: Sep 28
The Christmas holiday is one of the best opportunities to see your family and friends, have sweet fun, and take the time to make some classic road trips that you can’t afford to do at other times of the year.
But (there will always be a BUT...), the Christmas holiday period is also a perfect time for burglars to break into your home and steal valuable items while you are away.
You don’t come back home after your lovely Christmas holiday and find out that your valuables have been stolen. So take some simple precautions and secure your home before you go for your Christmas vacation.
1. Be anti-social. When I say anti-social, I don’t mean what you are thinking. The anti-social I mean is that you shouldn’t post everything, limit what you post. I know it is very tempting to post on social media where and when you are going for your vacation, but it is very dangerous. Studies show that most burglars use social media platforms to target properties to rob. So Beware!
2. Take your spare keys with you. Most times we keep our spare keys under the mat or in the flower pot. Trust me; burglars are very smart, so they will always check under the fat or in flower pot when they come to rob your home. So before you travel, you have to make sure that you take your spare keys with you.
3. Make sure your garage door is secured. Burglars can easily get inside your garage if you don’t secure your garage door. And when thieves get into your garage door, they can break into your home. To avoid this problem, the best thing is to make sure your garage door is secured. If your garage has an automatic door, it is best you turn off its power supply so it can’t be opened by a burglar with a master remote.
4. It is time to change your locks. It’s your house lock, you have given a spare key to your neighbors, friends and you probably most have misplaced one of the keys. Before you embark on any Christmas vacation, it is best to change your locks. You don’t know who is who, so changing your locks is the best way to avoid knowing who is who when it is too late.
However, if you want to change your locks, you have to make sure you are choosing the right locksmith. Choosing the right locksmith takes time and stress.
