Locking up While on Vacation with a Seattle Emergency Locksmith
Seattle Emergency Locksmith
Summer is the most popular time of the year to take vacations and leave the house for a significant amount of time. Unfortunately, because of so many people taking vacations and leaving the house it’s when your home is most prone to being robbed or broken into. To prevent having to call a Seattle emergency locksmith you can do some simple things before you leave for a vacation.
Have you ever been rushing to leave the house in such a hurry that you forgot something important? If you haven’t ever been in that situation yet, you eventually will.
If your forget something you can return back to your home, get it, and leave. However, if you forget to lock your doors before you leave on a vacation you can’t necessarily come back as easy as you would like in order to make sure everything is locked up. It can be really easy to be so focused on making sure you have everything packed that you need for the vacation that you forget to take care of some things at home (such as locking your windows and doors up).
A simple way to remind yourself to lock everything up is by posting up a little sticky note or paper onto the door so that you are forced to remember.
In addition to remembering to actually lock your windows and doors up before you leave, it could help to upgrade some of your locks to make your home more secure. For example, mortise locks are extremely heavy duty and offer a lot of security while spring latch locks are less heavy and also less secure.
