I’m sharing an infographic today called “10 Simple Ways to Make Your Home More Secure.” It goes without saying that home security is really important for everyone; having an intruder the home carries the high price tag of the personal safety of every household member. You’re also at risk of losing valuable belongings which can leave you and your family spending money out of pocket. Everyone endeavors to prevent unwanted visitors into the home but sometimes they will get past.
With burglars becoming savvier, people need to constantly be vigilant. It can be easy to become complacent with your home especially when you do routine behaviors. Leaving the house, you might simply forget to lock the door or you might forget to close some windows and these could be just the opportunity that a burglar will seek out.
The guys at Senator Windows have put together an infographic below which details how you can make your home more secure with some viable and useful suggestions. Check it out below!
Thank you to Senator Windows for providing this valuable infographic. Please read it and take it to heart.
If you find any of the “red flags” indicated on the infographic, play a day with the family to correct those which are DIY projects. Some of these ideas should sound familiar to DIY Home & Garden regular readers, as we’ve shared some of these ideas before.
Here are links to a few of our DIY home security measures:
- Spend time organizing your garage or shed to store tools securely.
