Keeping Home Safe While Away

The holidays are quickly approaching. Thanksgiving is just under two weeks away and the winter holidays like Christmas will soon follow. It’s easy to get caught up with shopping, spending time with friends and enjoying the season, but it’s important to keep safety and security in mind.

In 2012, over 90 million people traveled before, on or after the major holidays, leaving most of their homes empty. While this may not be a cause for concern for some families, taking the appropriate security measures while traveling is important nonetheless. But how do you make sure your home is as secured as possible when you’re away from your fortress?

There are few things you can do to make sure your home is protected, even when you’re gone.

2. Secure Your Home: That’s right, securing your home by locking all doors and windows greatly reduces the chances of a home invasion while you’re away. Burglars often look for an open window or door in which to enter through, don’t give them this avenue by locking yours. On main doors use both the door and dead bolt locks. For garages, close and lock the garage if possible as well as the attached house door. Simple steps can add a great amount of safety.

3. Get A Closer Eye: If you’re traveling for the holidays, but know of a good neighbor who isn’t, ask them to keep an eye on your residence. The communities in which you live are another great resource when it comes to protecting your home. A safer community often means less crime, but if you can make sure your home is safe while you’re gone by getting some help from the neighbors. Ask them to pick up any mail or packages you may get and to look out for anything suspicious.
