Safeguarding Your Home

Tips from American Modern


American Modern is one of the trusted insurance companies we here at Armstrong Fairway write with.  They have come up with some great tips to ensure you and your family are protected.  The holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year for thieves.  Many people travel throughout the end of the year and may not think to safeguard their home as well as they should. 

LOCK IT UP-Store valuable items in a safe or locked box.

INSTALL DEADBOLTS- Install deadbolts on all entry doors.

REINFORCE SLIDING DOORS-Brace sliding doors with metal or wooden rods cut to fit into the track.

SIGN FOR ALL DELIVERIES-If you can’t be home to accept delivery, make alternate pick-up arrangements.  Boxes left on doorsteps invite theft.

KEEP DOORS LOCKED-Lock doors and windows whenever you leave home.  If you have a garage or shed, make sure it is also closed and locked.

USE TIMERS-If you’re going to be away for an extended period, put your lights, and radio on staggered timers.

BLOCK PRYING EYES-Close curtains and blinds.  Don’t place boxes from high-priced items (such as TVs or computers) on the curb for everyone to see.


Hopefully, these tips will lend a hand this holiday season.  We want to wish you and your family a great holiday season!
