Did you know that in the UK, the 7th of July is the third worst day of the year for burglaries, up 12% on the annual norm?
But don’t panic!!
Shutting the curtains before you make your way to Spain this summer may seem very basic, but keeping expensive items hidden from prying eyes, is one of the best ways to deter would-be burglars.
A neater solution for all year-round protection is Contra Vision’s range of Privacy Window Film.
This simple but incredibly effective self-adhesive film allows vision from inside out, whilst cleverly restricting the view into the house from nosey passers by.
The film can be easily installed and also has the benefits of acting as a great solar shield – reducing the amount of heat entering the house. This is absolutely perfect during our current heatwave!
Computers, cash, small electrical goods and jewellery are among the most commonly stolen items in domestic burglaries as they are small and relatively easy for thieves to sell on.
It’s interesting to note that 21% of people never hide their valuable possessions when leaving the house. Even more worryingly 37% of people leave portable gadgets such as laptops, tablets and phones easily accessible!!
Don’t forget, when you go away on holiday, lock your doors and windows, put your alarm on and keep those valuable items out of sight!
