With crimes like burglaries and home invasions on the rise across the nation, it is not surprising that home security is a major concern to everyone. Fortunately, there are many ways to make your house more secure so that if you live alone, travel, or even if you simply want to feel safer, things exist that you can do to accomplish this.
Windows and Doors
The first thing you should check before leaving on vacation or whenever the desire to make your house more secure spurs you to take action are that your doors and windows, all of them, lock securely. Loose or missing locks should be replaced and if you do not have one already, dead-bolt locks should be installed on both front and back doors.
