We all like to keep our home looking its best. It is important to us that our family has somewhere comfortable and safe to live. So, most of us invest a lot of time and money in keeping it looking good and making sure it is secure.
Yet, very few of us think about using signs like the ones you can buy from my door sign to help us to do this. Surprisingly, as you will see, there are quite a few ways the right signage can enhance your home.
Improving security is the most obvious use for signs in and around the home. Most of us know that housebreakers would rather break into a house that has no security than one that is bristling with it.
That is why the home security market is booming. Currently, around 23% of the US homes that have access to a high-speed internet connection also have an alarm and surveillance system. The most popular systems include the ability to watch what is going on in your home in live time.
It is a highly effective way to protect your property and as you can see here there are plenty of choices. So, it is not hard to find a security system that fits your budget and needs.
Once it is installed, it is worth spending more money on advertising the fact that you have it. Studies show that would-be burglars will usually go elsewhere if they see an alarm system or CCTV signage on a house.
Beware of the dog signs
If you have a dog, it is also worth letting people know that is the case, using a sign. Again, it will put burglars off. Plus, it will make sure that anyone entering your yard is aware of the fact that you have a dog. This ensures that they do not do anything to alarm your pet, which could lead to them biting someone.
No dumping and anti-vandal signs
The last thing you want is for rubbish to be dumped on your land or for vandals to target your home. Putting up warning signs is a good way to reduce the chances of this happening.
If you have used anti-vandal paint, it really pays to advertise that fact. Most vandals will not bother when they realize that their handiwork will be washed away a few hours after they have completed it.
No parking signs
Most of us like to park close to our homes. It is safer to do so as well as being more convenient. So, if you have a drive you want to be able to park on it. Unfortunately, in busy areas, this is not always possible because people tend to park in front of other people´s drives.
Putting up a no parking sign at the end of your drive can really help to reduce the chances of this happening. But, before you put one up there are a few things you should know about your right to do so and how enforceable it is. You can find out most of what you need to know by reading this article.
