By far, the most common threat to homes is burglary. According to the FBI, a house or condominium in the United States is burglarized every 15 seconds. And the majority of these residential burglaries occur during the day when most people are away at work or school. Statistics show that 70% of burglars use some amount of force to gain entry into a dwelling, but their preference is easy access through an unlocked door or window.
Even if you’re not there when it happens, a break-in can permanently shatter your feeling of security at home. Fortunately, taking a few simple precautions can dramatically reduce the risks of an invader gaining access to your home. Gulfshore Insurance has partnered with Naples Security Solutions to bring you the best recommendations in home security protection.
