Keeping Your Home and Belongings Secure With Home Watch

Were you ever curious about how burglars choose which homes to target?  Those experienced in the trade will tell you that the homes  are not chosen at random.  In an article that interviews convicted burglars we found some avoidable signs that burglars look for when “casing” a home.

If it snows while you are away and the snow on your front walk or driveway remain pristine, that is a tell-tale sign to thieves that you are away. When a Toronto Home Watch check is performed we can ensure that your walk and driveway has been cleared. If we arrive to find that your snow clearing company has forgotten your home we will make sure they return to perform the service. Even if you haven’t hired a professional snow removal company, our tire tracks and foot prints on your walkway and driveway can let thieves know that your home may be occupied.


Another sign that you are away is the pile of junk mail and flyers that collects at your front door or mailbox.  Burglars look for this as a sign that you are away.  Some might even leave a flyer at your front door to see how long it takes you to remove it. Toronto Home Watch will take in all mail, discard  junk mail, set aside addressed mail and can even forward or scan important mail as directed by our client.
