Whether you own your own home or rent it, home security is quite likely to be a big concern. None of us like to think that we’ll ever be the victim of a break-in or burglary, but the truth is these things do happen.
And it’s not just our homes we need to think about, burglars often target gardens too, as more and more people are buying gorgeous garden furniture and accessories.
There are several things we can do though to make our homes, and gardens, more secure.
Rattan Direct have put together a really useful guide to home and garden security, designed to help all of us protect our properties and feel safer.
The guide is really in-depth, revealing some interesting facts and figures that I didn’t know before. Like the fact that most burglaries actually take place between 10am and 3pm, when people are most likely to be out at work. For some reason I assumed most were carried out at night, not during the day.
Most importantly though the guide provides loads of advice on how best to keep our homes and gardens safe and secure.
They even offer tips on how to keep pets safe, because as awful as it sounds, there has been a rise in the number of dogs in particular being taken from back gardens. There are some simple steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of this happening to your dog though, and these are clearly laid out in Rattan Direct’s guide.
With the clocks going back and the evenings getting darker earlier, now is a great time to really think about how secure your home and garden are. And to start taking steps to improve things if they’re not as secure as they could be.
If you’re not sure where to start, then head over and have a read of the home and garden security guide for some great tips to get you on the right track.
