    Should I leave the upstairs windows open?

    Security Specialists

    How risky is it to leave an upstairs bedroom open when no one is home during the day time? Do burglars try and enter upstairs windows very often or is this an unlikely occurrence? The bedrooms can get very warm during the day especially in the summer months unless a window is kept open.

    "Hi Joyce,

    I think it’s more your choice to make that decision.

    We would never advise to leave windows open, especially if you have a flat roof.

    But again, it’s up-to you."

    "If you are going to leave the window open you might as well leave the door open.
    Every open avenue is an entrance for a burglar.
    Your very nice neighbours might even help him with giving him a ladder."

    "Every customer has their own ideas in respect of secuirty. It is vital to consider the weak points in your own home, there are key areas that are commonly targeted by lawbreakers.

    Front door
    This is the most obvious route for criminals to gain access into your home, and the biggest proportion of break-ins occur via this entrance.

    Back and side doors
    Any entrance into your property is viewed as a potential channel for a criminal to gain access.

    Patio and French doors are especially defenseless against break-ins.

    Off-street windows
    Windows that are not facing onto a busy street or road may also be attractive to crooks as there are no prying eyes from the public. never neglect your windows and keep them closed and locked whenever you go out.

    Garage
    Some people may not think to monitor their garage, but this is often a common access route for burglars. Therefore, whether your garage contains valuable equipment or not, it’s important to keep it safeguarded.

    Rear Of Property
    Often our gardens house many expensive items that make them inviting to crooks."
