Spring Cleaning: A Seasonal Challenge
Written by

Spring is a wonderful season to soak up the great outdoors, unless you're one of the many people who suffer from allergies. However, it's also an ideal time to spruce up your home by organizing, cleaning, and making improvements. An area worth focusing on is your outdoor space. As plants begin to rapidly grow, it's important to be aware that they can provide cover for potential intruders. This is especially true for shrubs and trees near your home, which can be used by criminals to scope out whether you're home or if your security system is armed. The solution is simple: trim back your shrubs and trees before new growth begins. This will not only enhance the appearance of your yard, but also help keep your home secure.

Over time, mold and dirt can accumulate on the security yard signs, making them less reflective and potentially giving the impression that your home is not being monitored. We recommend washing your yard signs with a gentle detergent to remove any buildup. While you're at it, take a moment to straighten the sign and ensure it looks professional and well-cared for. Trim vines and plants that hide it from prying eyes. If your sign is gone with the wind, call us for a free replacement. Take advantage of the spring season to beautify your outdoor space while also safeguarding your home. By taking these simple steps, you can enhance the effectiveness of your home security system and help deter potential intruders. Despite the challenging times that we find ourselves in once again, Alert-Tech remains committed to strengthening your safety and security no matter the season. During a previous economic downturn, a popular song encouraged people to "just be happy." While it can be difficult sometimes, we want to help you find that sweet spot of confidence and peace of mind that comes with knowing your home and business is protected by a monitored alarm system from Alert-Tech Systems.
