Don’t Be Distracted by The Festivity
Christmas is nearly upon us, and there is no better time to take a step back from the busy schedule of life and think, is my home as secure as it should be? It can be very easy to get caught up in the craziness of everyday life and forget the things that matter. If your exterior doors are not secure, your possessions are unsafe from intruders. For one moment we encourage you to put the Christmas shopping list to one side and take a read of some of the main reasons you may want to consider upgrading your locks this Christmas.
Your Home is Not Immune To Crime
The festive period is traditionally when people get together with family and friends. However, it can often lead to increased burglaries, vandalism and theft on your doorstep. The reason for this is simple; people tend to leave their homes unattended for longer when they are busy celebrating. To avoid this, you mustn’t become complacent about security at home during this time of year.
The Most Important Christmas Present
As you can already tell the temperature has dropped dramatically, and this can mean more than just some ice forming on your car. This sudden drop in temperature can also take its toll on the locks of our homes. During these colder months of the year, water can get into your locking mechanism, and when the temperature drops below freezing, this can expand, causing your lock to become damaged and even stop working.
There are ways that you can protect yourself from this happening though. You must ensure you have a good-quality deadbolt installed on your front door. This will not only keep intruders out, but it will also ensure that no moisture can get inside your home through this opening. You should also ensure that you have a keypad installed on your garage or back door so that there is no chance of water getting inside through this opening when it gets cold outside.
Although your Christmas shopping list may be your top priority, you must take the time out of your busy schedule to ensure your home is fully secure. If you’re starting to spot any signs of your lock stopping to work correctly or completely not working at all, make sure you contact one of our trained professionals. At the end of the day, a new lock for your home is one of the best presents you can get as it will ensure that all your possessions are safe for many years to come.
Don’t Let Life Get In The Way Of You Protecting Your Home
Locksmiths in the UK are not just skilled in lock repair. They are also experts at providing advice on keeping your home safe. One of the most important things you can do is ensure all your locks are in good working order.
If you have noticed any signs of wear and tear, this is a sign that your locks may be at risk of being compromised. Getting any damaged locks repaired as soon as possible is important as this will eliminate any potential security risks.
The safety of your home should be your number one priority. It can be very easy to get caught up with the busy schedule of everyday life and forget about the more important things. One of the best ways to ensure your home is always secure is by replacing your existing locks. Over the years the wear and tear of constant use can result in your lock not being as secure as you may think. If you are starting to notice any signs of your lock not working correctly, please get in contact with a professional locksmith.
Never be Caught Out By The Cold Weather
It’s that time of year again when we worry about our homes and how to protect them from the cold weather. But what about your locks? The evenings are getting colder and darker, and ensuring that your locks are functioning correctly is now more important than ever. It would be a nightmare to return home after a long working day to find your lock not working. If you have had your key for many years, it may eventually snap off inside the lock which is a nightmare to resolve. Ensure your lock and key are maintained to the best of this winter as we wouldn’t want to hear that you’re stuck outside in the cold.
If you haven’t checked them since last winter, it’s probably worth giving them a once-over before Christmas. If they’re getting old or have been abused by children or pets over the summer, they may need replacing before they worsen. We offer a range of different types of locks from Yale, Chubb and Union as well as handle sets and deadbolts so if you aren’t sure which ones will suit your home best; please feel free to ask us for advice!
