Always keep your garage closed
Most of us probably do a ton of work out of our garage. Maybe you’re fixing up your car, lawn mower, or working on a DIY home improvement project in your garage workshop. Whatever the case, always close your garage door. Also, get proper ventilation for your garage.
Burglars scoping out a neighborhood might enjoy peeking into an open garage to see what sort of goodies are inside. If a potential burglar spots a dirt bike or power tools hanging on your garage wall, your home might be targeted. Also, never leave your garage door open at nighttime, even if you live in a “safe” neighborhood. That’s just common sense.
