It’s the crisp air and sweet smell of cinnamon and fresh apples that captivate the senses in the Fall. Which is a great distraction when you start to think about how common things are made a little more complicated in this season. But at least you can tackle the heightened alert you need to muster with a pumpkin-spiced latte. Home invasions and robberies are on the rise getting closer to the holiday season. It’s not only home invasions that rise, but thieves know that this is a high time for deliveries and can simply walk up to your porch and grab your packages. There are ways to avoid these theft claims, like having a camera that alerts you to movement, keeping your property locked, and having movement-triggered lights in areas where your property has entryways. These seem like small things that are negligible, but they make all of the difference when a burglar is trying to enter your home without permission.
Another claim that is seen more commonly in the Fall months is fire damage because it’s the best time to cozy up with a fire roaring in the fireplace and the pumpkin and cinnamon candles to make the house smell like the season. There are several preventive measures you can take, like ensuring that you’ve blown out candles and that you’ve put out your fireplace and maintain it by not using water, but smothering the fire safely and making sure the valves are all set to “off”.
