As you enter the spring of 2010, you have likely already started working on your New Years resolutions.
We hope it's not to late to add one more to the list: home protection. We always do everything we can to keep our homes safe and keep intruders out, and we're sure you do the same. Here at C & E, we have learned you can never do too much. Here are some simple tips we have picked up that you can employ to help make your house an uninviting target for thieves this year:
- Iluminate your home's entry points (doors and windows) and make sure the lights shine ON the house, and not in the eyes of any "observers."
- Don't give burglars hiding places. Trim bushes away from doors and windows, and at least two feet up from the ground.
- Participate in or organize a neighborhood watch program. A decal placed on a window near the entry points of your home will convey to burglars that htey possibly are being watched.
These are just a few of the many ways you can help protect your home from intruders. They are simple steps that can make a big difference in protecting your home and your possessions. We don't want you to ever come home and find your house has been broken into and valuable possessions stolen.
