When preparing to make your garage door secure and safe from the potential invaders & thieves, you think about making every place safe; may that be either of your kitchen, storage or any other place else. You think of protecting everything from money to clothes and from family heirlooms to your valuable documents.
But you forget about one of your most important properties – your garage. And this is what you make one of the greatest mistakes when trying to protect your properties.
In fact, you probably need to pay your first attention to your garage as it’s filled with high-cost items that you’d be really devastated to lose. From your car to lawn equipment and seasonal items – everything in your garage is expensive. For your kind information, let me tell you that things like camping gear, safety items and/or any other valuable item that you’ve stored in your garage; are the most-potential targets for the invaders. This is why you should do your best to make your garage as secure as possible.
Go through this text. Here, I’ve collected some of the best 4 easy ways that will help you to keep your garage more secure.
KEEP THE DOOR CLOSED WHEN YOU’RE AT HOME
Sometimes, when you come to your home just for a while and park your car, you don’t bother to shut the door of your garage. This may cause you to bear the cost of two potential issues. Guess what?
The first one is that the items in your garage are at a high risk of being stolen by someone entering silently into your garage. Let me tell you that the item may be anything; i.e., your car or any other item that you usually store in your garage.
The second potential issue is that even if someone’s not gonna steal anything from you he’s surely gonna target what he’d be stealing from your garage.
This is why I strongly suggest you keep the door of your garage closed whenever you’re at home.
KEEP THE WHOLE AREA LOCKED
This is one of the most common facts about almost all the garages.
Yes, you read that right – All the garages. And I’m damn sure you’ve seen this in almost all the garages you’ve been. Guess what?
They just leave their door opened; without locking. Beware if your garage has a door leading directly to the interior. Someone with a bad will can easily have access to your whole garage if it is left unlocked.
And once entered, let me tell you frankly that; they can take away everything from your garage without leaving a single sign to trace.
This is why I strongly suggest you keep every door locked. Likewise, if your garage has a doggy door, be sure to keep it sealed all the time whenever it’s not in use.
INSTALL LIGHTS OUTSIDE
Lights are must-to-have for both your home and your garage if you really want to make it safe from thieves and burglars. Thus, you mustn’t ever forget to get lights fitted in your garage while preparing to make it safe & secure.
Let’s suppose that you’ve planned to install lights in your garage; okay? Well, can you just guess what type of light would be the most-effective and beneficial for both; i.e., your home and your garage?
Well, if I had to choose one for my garage, I’d better choose to install motion sensor lights. This would let me know easily about any movement happening at any time of night.
Above all, having a light installed makes us less prone to be robbed.
HIDE THE EMERGENCY RELEASE
Most of the modern garage doors have a simple cord-like structure hanging inside it. Can you guess the use of this cord?
It’s used to open the garage door manually when the garage door stops working. And it’s very much important to make it safe and secure keeping it in a place out of sight of strangers. Else, the thieves and burglars would get a grand opportunity to make-out money and/or items.
