Why do I need a home safe, you ask? Isn’t that reserved for the millionaires and billionaires of the world, who live in massive mansions? No, not really, a home safe can be really important, regardless of you belong to the 1% or the 99%. A home safe will keep your valuables safe, whether it’s a precious piece of jewelry or an important document such as the sales deed to your property.
So, what can I put in my home safe?
There are so many things you can put in the home safe, provided they are important to you. It should certainly have some value – nobody in their right mind would store chocolates or cookies in their home safe, if you get the drift.
If you have an expensive piece of jewelry or a precious family heirloom that has been passed through generations, be sure to keep it safely in the home safe. Maybe you have a lump sum of cash in the house, to be used in case of an emergency.
Keep that in the safe. How about important documents such as stock certificates, sales deed to your properties, passport, college certificates? Keep them in the safe as well. Do you have a gun? Keep in a specially designed gun safe.
A safe is a perfect place to store all items that are precious to you, to which only you should have access to. You certainly wouldn’t want your child to have access to your gun, for example. Keeping your precious belongings in the safe protects them from flood or fire and other natural disasters.
What are the different types of home safes?
Wall and Floor Safes
Wall of floor safes are very secretive and cannot be easily detected. They protect your valuables from burglars or anyone who has been prying. These safes are set under the floor or into an open space in the wall. They are concealed with a rug or a picture and are generally undetectable.
Fireproof safes give you all the protection you need against house fire, which may have been caused by a problem with the electrical wiring, wildfire, cooking accident or arson. These safes are fire proof, as the name suggests and have a high heat tolerance. They can protect the items inside, even at temperatures of 350 degrees and more.
Gun safes are for those who have guns at home. Obviously, you wouldn’t want your children to have access to the guns. A gun in the hands of a child can only lead to a tragedy. That’s why you must buy a gun safe and store your guns and ammunition in it. Gun safes are available in several different shapes and sizes.
It is the job of a locksmith to install a home safe in your house. A locksmith will insure that your valued possessions are safe and secure.
