Make sure to pay attention to your lock repairs need on the technical side but also to the neighborhood, especially the years of the houses surrounding yours.
Even a small change can indicate something is amiss
One indication can be some sort of inconspicuous mark a thief will leave to remind themselves to come to your house when you’re not home, such as putting a welcome mat in a different spot or moving an item outside your home.
Doing this helps to indicate to burglars if you’re home or not when they come back.
If the item the moved is back where it was before, you’re home. If it’s still where the burglar left it, you have not yet come home.
If you’re not home when the burglar comes back and you've neglected on the other hand to take care of your lock repairs, then it’s a good time for them to strike.
Though most people think thieves strike at night under cover of darkness, most burglaries actually happen in the daytime when most people are at work or school.
No matter the time of day, always take necessary precautions to keep your home secure.
