The recent spell of warm weather seems to have brought the local burglars out. In recent days, we have seen a jump in the number of reported burglaries in the Burnley, Nelson and Colne areas.
Its a fact that burglary peaks at two different times of year. The dark winter evenings provide the perfect conditions for burglars to operate unseen, but equally, summer provides rich pickings, as we head off on holiday and the warm weather sees our guard slip, with open windows and doors tempting burglars to help themselves.
At Acewell, we would always recommend you fit a high quality burglar alarm system, to provide maximum protection against become a victim of burglary. However, the best alarm system in the world (let alone Lancashire!) is not going to defeat a burglar who can easily let themselves in through an open window into an unattended house or business.
The message is therefore clear. If you are leaving your home, close and lock your windows and doors. Just as important, if you are in the back garden, enjoying the weather, don’t leave your front door unlocked! Burglars know that during warm weather, we all feel good and relaxed, don’t let them spoil your year by letting your defences slip and making it easy for them.
If you are going away on holiday, give us a call on 01282 412340 to service your burglar alarm system before you go. That way, you can truly relax on the beach!
