Now that summer is approaching you may be tempted to leave windows open through the night or when away from the property. Unfortunately this is an open invitation for opportunist criminals and massively increases the risk of burglary.  Ensure that your ground floor and easy to access windows are fully secure even when you are at home. You must understand that a burglar could easily enter your home and help themselves to your valued possessions in no time at all, so while you are hanging out the washing, taking a shower or sleeping they could be in and out without you seeing or hearing a thing.

Most modern windows are fitted with safety catches to make fully opening them more difficult from the outside, however when you are not at home it is best to keep all windows fully closed and locked.
