During the summer months, many people go on vacation, leaving their homes unattended. Luckily, there are multiple safety measures you can take to make sure that your home is secure while you’re away.

The first and most important line of defense for your home are good locks. Make sure that all of your locks are working and in good order before you go on a trip. Lock all of your doors and windows before you head out of town. If you have a spare key hidden, make sure that it’s not in an obvious place like under the doormat or a potted plant.

Before you go on vacation, it’s a good idea to ask a neighbor or a friend to come by your home a few times to get the mail and check on things. Give them a spare key so they can access your home in case of an emergency as well.

If you return home and there has been a burglary, call the police immediately. After you’ve spoken with them and your insurance, your next call should be your locksmith. Have them come as soon as possible to change out all of your locks. At A-1 Lock and Safe, we have 24-hour emergency service, so we can be there to help any time of day or night.
