However, it is important to remember at this time that as well as those looking forward to holidays, there are those looking forward to people being away from home for the first time in a while – burglars. Before you go, look through these tips for keeping your home safe and secure whilst you are away…

The first thing to remember is not to post details of your holiday or even the fact that you are going to be away on social media. This is a way that lots of burglars find out that your home is empty and it can also invalidate your insurance if you do have a burglary.

Alarms are a good way to keep your home secure and to give you peace of mind. Get a professional to install alarms and cameras like this CCTV Manchester based company Red Dam, and this also acts as a deterrent to burglars who are not as likely to attempt a burglary if they see the property is alarmed.

Pay attention to your back garden as well as the front of the house as this is a common route for burglars. Make sure all your fencing is secure and also it is a good idea to plant some spiky bushes and plants like holly around the perimeter to make it harder for a burglar to enter the garden.
