Even though there are many more interesting projects to do on your home such as painting, remodeling, landcaping etc.. giving your residential locksmith a call should be one of the first things you do when moving into a new home, or even rental for that matter. You never know the real history of a home, you don’t know who still has keys, and sometimes having your London residential locksmith add some new hardware can add just as much as a new coat of paint.
Although there are numerous services that your locksmith can perform, some of the most common include; Swapping out Cylinders, Key Duplication, Lock Outs, Adding Dead Bolts etc..
Swapping Out Cylinders – The first thing you should have the locksmith do when you move into a new residential location is swap out the cylinders. The cylinder is the part of the lock that contains everything that makes your locks function. By replacing the cylinders you will make it so that any and all old keys for the residence no longer work and you’ll be able to have your own new set of keys made adding security and piece of mind for you and your family.
Key Duplication – Once you’ve had the cylinders swapped out and new keys made it’s important to have duplicates made. We recommend keeping a spare key at a family members house if they live close by to avoid needing lockout services, but if you ever do need lockout services be sure to call experts from City-Locksmith.co.uk.
Lock Outs – There are probably 101 reasons why people can get locked out of their house, just now that when and if that happens your City-Locksmith.co.uk locksmiths in London are here to help. Always remember to look for a bonded, licensed and insured locksmith because that means they will take care of any potential damage that occurs while working on your home.
Adding Dead Bolts – If your new residence doesn’t have any dead bolts when you move in we highly recommend adding them. Other than more expensive, higher security systems there is not much that can add more piece of mind than being able to slide than locking that dead bolt before you go to bead each night.
