Summertime And The Thieving Is Easy
Posted on 22nd June 2022 at 15:03
The number of home insurance claims for burglary does tend to increase during warmer months.
Whilst we enjoy warmer weather, windows are open wide and we spend more time in the garden away from the house. This does unfortunately make it easier for opportunist thieves to enter your property by climbing a drain pipe to access an open window, or even by simply walking through a front door that has been left unlocked.
The number of home insurance claims for burglary does tend to increase during warmer months and when a stranger enters your home it can be a hugely distressing experience, whether you are at home at the time, or not. To prevent this from happening to you, we have some simple security tips:
Install a home security system with CCTV
Install outside lighting
Remember to lock your front door, especially when in the back garden
Remember to lock all windows, especially when you leave the house
At night, leave windows on a catch rather than wide open
Hide car keys, never leave them in plain sight
