Because your business and home contain all kinds of valuables, and possibly items that cannot be replaced, it’s imperative to know they are well secured. The theft of your property is stressful; it feels like an invasion of your safe space and can lead to very expensive loss. Here in Cardiff, some are known to have higher crime rates, making home and business security all the more important, and frankly, quite necessary.
Let’s take a look at what you can do when it comes to locks and securing your home and business.
How Secure Is Your Property?
Often, homeowners assume they’ve done all that’s necessary to secure their premises; however, if a professional locksmith were to take a look, it could be a different answer. Did you know that you can get security assessments or checks that will provide you with insight into what may be missing or lacking?
The same can be said for businesses where it can be a bit more complex if you’re dealing with multi-level buildings with many entry and exit points. Think about all the equipment, tools and sensitive files you have in your business. Now imagine if someone were to gain access and just how much loss you could be dealing with.
Repair or Replace Damaged Locks Immediately
If you notice that a lock isn’t working properly, you don’t want to wait on repairing or replacing it. A broken lock provides zero security, and criminals are on the lookout for just such issues. This is why at we offer a fast response time and 24-hour emergency service. Should the lock be damaged beyond repair, our locksmiths can change the locks for you, installing something high-quality and secure. You can get a quote upfront to ensure there are no surprises after the fact. We are also fully trained in fire regulations and insurance requirements.
Is It Time for an Upgrade?
Speaking of replacing locks, this could be a great time to assess your current business and home lock systems and consider an upgrade. Locks are always improving, whether it be the material used or the lock mechanism. There are also smart locks which have become very popular in the past couple of years. A big pro in installing smart locks is that they can be operated remotely. That means that, if you get to work and realise you forgot to lock the front door to your house, you can simply log on to the companion app and secure the premises in a few swipes.
Never Make Assumptions or Take Risks with Home and Business Security
The main takeaway is never to make assumptions or take risks when it comes to your home and business security systems. It’s always best to err on the side of caution, taking too many security steps instead of not enough. When in doubt, have a professional locksmith like Curley Locks come out and take a look.
