How to Keep Burglars Away from Your Garage
November 10, 2021
No matter how safe you think your neighborhood is, no one is ever 100% protected from burglars. Break-ins often occur more than we think they do, accessing houses through easy entry points such as the garage. Since the garage is an often neglected space, doors and windows of garages are perfect for thieves to enter our homes unannounced. Once a burglary happens, we never really get over it—always scared that a stranger may come creeping in again at night while we sleep soundly. A quick look at the Bureau of Justice Statistics will tell you that about two-thirds of property crimes happened inside or near the home of residents. Additionally, 17.6% of property crimes that were reported between the years 2004 to 2008 happened inside the main house, garage, and porch. Now this is not the time to panic or be filled with irrational worry. There would always be dangers out there but there are many ways to mitigate them. Don’t let any burglary ever happen to you and your family by reducing the risks, starting from your garage. Below are some tips you could do now for your household’s safety.
