Summertime means summer travel for home owners. Not surprisingly, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reports that home burglaries peak in July and August. Homes that look not lived in are more susceptible to burglaries.
There are few things people can do to keep there home from being broken into when traveling this summer.
The best thing you can do is hire a house sitter
to stay in your home while you are gone. House sitters will give your home the lived in look. They can bring in your mail and papers, water your plants and park in your driveway. If you have pets the sitter will also take care of all of your pets needs.
TLC For Kids
, Inc, is a childcare agency that also provides house and pet sitters in Miami and St. Louis. “Our screened and background checked caregivers are a great match for families looking for house and pet sitters,” explains Vice President Angela Lehmann. “Clients love knowing they only need to make one call to us and it’s taken care of.”
Other steps you can take to keep your risk of a break-in low is to put your lights on a timer, put up a motion detector light outside, and make sure all your windows are locked before you leave.
