3 Reasons Why Every Home Should Have a Safe
December 21, 2012 | Written by: Armstrong Security
Homeowners often invest in insurance to protect their homes from break-ins and natural disasters. However, even if your insurance company awards you compensation, it is still a major inconvenience to replace lost or damaged valuables. Also, no matter how much coverage your insurance offers, certain items are simply irreplaceable. To ensure that your most treasured possessions remain unharmed in the event of a fire, flood, or burglary, invest in a safe for your home. Here are a few reasons why:
Protect Your Valuables from Theft
Robberies are occurring more frequently here in Orlando , so property owners should be prepared in case someone breaks into their home. Thieves often steal easy-to-carry, high value items such as jewelry, cash, laptop computers, and expensive electronics. Placing these and other valuable items in a safe will prevent grab-and-go thieves from making off with your expensive possessions.
Store Important Documents Close at Hand
Visiting a bank deposit box can be a major inconvenience. You may want to keep important papers such as your passport, social security card, birth certificate, and other sensitive financial documents at home where you can access them. However, thieves can use these items to commit identity theft and fraud, so you need to keep them secure. Just like your jewelry and other valuables, you should store important documents in a safe.
Keep Memorabilia Safe from Disasters
Irreplaceable family memorabilia such as photos and letters may not be attractive to thieves, but thieves are not the only threats to your possessions. Natural disasters such as fires, floods, and storms can damage your home and destroy its contents. If your valuables, documents, and keepsakes are not stored inside a fireproof, watertight container, they may be irreparably damaged.
