Is Your Garage Putting Your Home At Risk?

Do you live in your garage at times? Are you one of those people who has a poker table in their garage? Do you spend a lot of time out there? Or do you live in a community where people leave their doors open an smile at one another? That’s all fine and dandy until you get so busy enjoying life that you forget to take necessary precautions for keeping your family safe.

Now, this isn’t some article that’s going to make you want to call your insurance company. There’s nothing faulty wrong with your garage. It’s fine. However, there may be some things that you’re not doing out there that are putting you and your family at risk.

Here’s a list of reasons your garage could be putting your home at risk:

  • It’s Probably The Main Entrance

Most of the time the garage door can act as the main entrance to your home. You might even use that door more frequently than the front door. And maybe certain people know this about your home. If this is the case, It’s time to upgrade your security as soon as possible. Add new locks, with deadbolts. Put a motion noise detector inside, so you’ll  be able to hear anybody that walks in. And install security cameras. Nowadays you can even put up cameras that are easily accessed from an app on your smartphone.

  • Your Car Is There

Having a vehicle is a big investment. The last thing you want to do is walk outside in the morning and notice that your car is gone. Trust me, it happens more often than not. Even inside your garage keep your car doors locked and install security features. You can also try frosting any windows that are attached to the garage and then try adding motion detector lights. When those lights pop on, chances are they’ll get scared and run.

  • Expensive Items and Tools Are Stored There

Yes, your car is valuable but you probably have other valuable items in there too. Storing valuables out there is like leaving your kids unattended in a park bathroom. Just because they right outside don’t always mean they’re safe. Keep things that are truly valuable locked in a fireproof safe.

If your garage needs a little TLC we can tidy it up in an hour or less.
