Usually a burglar will only spend about 60 seconds attempting to break in to a building. From the experience locksmiths Walsall have, we can safely say that anything you can do to increase the time that they would need to spend trying to gain entry will decrease the likelihood of a theft occurring.
6 Easy Ways to Prevent a Burglary:
Be careful with giving out keys to your home. Only give keys to a few trusted people.
Change all locks when moving into a new house or apartment.
When protecting your home from break-ins, check the easiest points of entry to make sure they are secure: doors and windows. Not sure? Call Locksmith Walsall!
Make sure back doors and the door that connects your garage to your home are solid and secured with high security deadbolt locks.
In addition to keeping your garden neatly trimmed and well cared for, keep it well lit. Burglars prefer to operate in the dark so that they won't be spotted in the act.
When going on holiday, take steps to secure your home while you are away. Do not tell people you aren't at home on the outgoing message of your answering machine. Secure all lock on doors and windows, including garage and pet doors. Ask a trusted neighbour or friend to pick up your mail and check inside and outside of your house every day. Do not close all blinds and curtains, it will be too obvious that you are away.
We at Walsall Locksmith hope that these locksmith tips will help you to protect your property from unwanted visitors.
