Doncaster Home Security After Lockdown
Hello again and at last we seem to be inching forward against Covid. Hopefully we can look forward to a great summer.
Unfortunately an interesting statistic that had been released is that burglaries continued during lockdown. At two thirds of normal though- maybe the thieves were shielding as well.
The average cost of the theft is £2856 so something you do not want to happen to you.
It may be that some of these homes were unoccupied second homes. But what is interesting in how many of these homes have no alarms, BS mortice locks or window locks. Security of your home has now become increasingly important with unemployment on the rise, there is every chance that burglaries will increase again.
As an established Doncaster locksmith, we have attended hundreds of break-ins over many years and there is a common pattern. Showing a keen interest in keeping your home secure with visual deterrants works in keeping the thieves away. The more you can show that you are secure the better. Old doors and windows in need of a coat of paint, broken fence panels allowing easy access make thieves think you are not bothered.
Fortunately alarms, security cameras and window locks can easily be installed. Keep doors and windows locked and hide away valuables. Think about buying a good quality safe.
Finally have your door locks checked to make sure they are upto standard. We offer as a Doncaster locksmith a free security check of your door and window locks. To book an appointment call SF Locksmith Doncaster on 07990573857.
