As we are all adjusting to the darker nights and moving swiftly into the heart of winter, now is the perfect time to re-evaluate the safety of your property and valuables. No matter whether you're moving into a new house or if you've been in your house for decades, safety and security in the home is vital.
Thankfully according to the latest crime figures from the Office for National Statistics the UK have seen a 7 per cent fall in domestic burglary in 2013 compared to 2012. However, the police are still urging home owners not to become complacent when it comes to home security and safety.
As we move further into Autumn and start to welcome Winter opportunities for thieves grows rapidly due to the dark nights although police are assuring people that they should not live in fear and instead should prevent these thefts by decreasing the opportunities of crime a burglar has on an empty household.
One simple and effective way of deterring burglars is motion-sensitive lighting fixtures above doors, back entrance to gardens and garages and to fit timers to indoor lights when you are out for the evening or away on holiday.
Another way to prevent thieves from taking objects such as cars is to make sure keys are put well out of the way of any doors with either cat flaps or letterboxes which are often used to send hooks through to obtain keys.
One particular household storage area which is really forgotten about when it comes to safety is the garden shed. Most sheds are used to store bikes, garden equipment and tools which when put together add up to a significant amount of money.
