Wouldn’t you know it, we’ve made it to August already. Usually at this time of year I’d be trying to focus your minds (not in a Paul McKenna way) on keeping your house secure whilst you enjoy your summer holiday. However, as we all know, these are not usual times, and many of us will be foregoing a 2020 holiday in favour of a staycation. And yes, a staycation does mean staying at home, and does not simply mean a holiday in the UK. This is the hill on which I will die – a holiday in the UK is still a holiday and NOT a staycation.
Anyway, I got diverted there by another of my minor annoyances, I do apologise. Despite the reduction in holidays, we are still expecting thefts from houses to increase in the coming months as the lockdown ends and more people head back to work. Houses that were previously occupied all day will become empty during the daytime and although we’ve seen massively reduced burglary figures during the lockdown, it’s likely these will now start increasing as burglars make up for lost time. Therefore, as a little reminder, I’ve put together a few more tips to keep your house as safe as possible over the summer and autumn.
