When you buy a new house, change the locks. You have no way of knowing how many folks might have keys to your house. Have a locksmith install a brand new lock. Give a key to someone you trust in case you get locked out.

Aim to purchase fire-resistant ceilings, roofs and floors. This will add an extra protection layer for your house, particularly if you live near power lines or in a dry location. Fire prevention should be taken seriously because it can stop a major disaster from happening.

Don't open up your door for someone who is a stranger. There are many different tactics that crooks use to enter homes, and a common way is simply to walk up to the door and ask for help. Make it a habit to only open your home's door to people you were expecting.

Buy ceiling, roofing and flooring which is resistant to fire. This will give your home added security. Preventing a fire is important since it can cause a lot of damage.

Never open the door for a stranger. You have no way of knowing if the stranger on the other side of the door wishes to do you harm. Establish a rule where you and your family only open the door for expected visitors.

Be cognizant of what others can see when they look in your windows. You might enjoy large windows so you can see out, but just remember that makes it easier for those burglars to see inside your home as well. If your house has street-facing windows, make sure they are always covered and your make sure your valuables are hidden away.

If you want to feel safe and secure, you must attend to your home security needs. There is little doubt among homeowners that this is true. Take what you've learned here, and use it to keep your home secure and your family safe.
