There is really no predicting when a home break in is going to happen, that’s why it is so important to have preventative measures in place to, well prevent it from occurring. Making sure you have secure doors to your home is a good place to start.

Windows are usually only used if they are easy to unlock or are left unlocked. One of the most important things to do before you leave your home is to check you have locked all windows in your home. If you live in an area with a high crime rate, you may want to consider adding iron railings to your windows, this can be done internally making it less obvious to passers-by.
