Keeping Your Apartment Safe

Never Store a Key

While this is more common among homeowners, many people do store spare keys under their welcome mat or inside of a fake rock near the door. Burglars are well aware of this practice, and leaving a key near your apartment is only inviting trouble. If you need to store a key somewhere, then give one to a neighbor or trusted friend.

Contact a Neighbor

If you’re heading out of town this summer, it’s always a good idea to let someone in the complex know that you’ll be gone. If you’ve entrusted them with a spare key, then they’ll already have everything they need to keep an eye on your apartment. If you haven’t, ask someone you trust if they would be willing to come by and check on your plants, plumbing, and ensure that nothing’s gone wrong in your absence. While it’s highly unlikely that anything will go wrong while you’re away, knowing that a neighbor is watching your home can bring you additional peace of mind.

Lock Your Doors and Windows

The weather is heating up every day, and you’ve probably opened up your windows to cool your apartment off during the day. Opening up your windows and patio door is a great way to cut down on cooling costs, but it’s important to make sure that you remember to close them before you leave or go to bed. More importantly, make sure that they’re closed and locked before you leave for a vacation. If you can’t remember whether or not you locked them, just give your neighbor a call and they can check!
