Top 3 Hacks to Burglarproof Your Home
There’s rarely an experience more terrifying or violating than a break in or a home invasion. According to neighborhoodscout.com, your chance of becoming a victim of property crime in the Las Vegas area is one and thirty-one. And with summer time being vacation time before the kids are back in school, empty homes make the perfect target for crooks. Tampa Bay property management companies recommend that you take the time to burglarproof your home for your own personal safety. Here are the top 3 hacks to burglarproof your home and provide peace of mind while you’re away.
1.) Guard your garage: Look for a perforated punch-out hole on your garage door track and invest in putting a padlock through the track to provide an extra layer of security.
2.) Defend your deadbolt: Have a standard deadbolt lock on your door? Most our secured with half-inch screws that make it easier to break through the door jamb by kicking the door in. Replacing those screws with longer, three and a half inch screws will help. Check with your Tampa Bay property manager if you have concerns about doing this repair.
3.) Level up your lighting: Motion detection lighting is a great way to illuminate the exterior of your home, even when you’re out of town. Criminals prefer to break in to homes that are not well lit, but Tampa Bay property managers suggest adding bright walk-way lights and motion detection lights on the front and back of the home to deter break-ins. Ask your Tampa Bay property manager or landlord if they are willing to cover or pay half the costs for this added security.
Even though these top 3 hacks to burglarproof your home aren’t guaranteed to protect your home 100 percent of the time, they can certainly make it more difficult for a break-in.
