As the weather starts to warm up it is important to take steps to protect your home. Following these simple tips can help:
– Make sure your doors and windows are closed and locked when you’re not in the room.
– Make sure nothing of value (including your car key) is left on show to tempt thieves into your property.
– Think about fitting a burglar alarm and security lighting – both to your home and outbuildings. It may be expensive, but they are very effective deterrents and can bring down your insurance costs.
