Transform Your Kitchen Space

Hello, my name is Katy and this blog is dedicated to how you can improve the interior of your home. Last year, I renovated my kitchen and it completely changed my life. Although I am really happy with the results, I didn't expect it to be so challenging. I kind of jumped in at the deep end, ripped my old kitchen out and then realised I had no idea how to install a new one or even what design I would like to choose. Thankfully, my friend who is a bit of an expert at these things guided me through the entire process and I learnt a lot of useful things. Since then, I have started to rennovate the rest of my home and garden.

4 Times to Call a Locksmith Even If You're Not Locked Out

A locksmith is a professional you call when you've been locked out of your home or car, as they can get you back in quickly and easily and without damaging your house or vehicle. While most people think of calling a locksmith for a lockout, there are some additional times when you should call a locksmith for their help.

Consider a few of those times, and why a locksmith may be necessary.

1. If you misplaced your keys

If you've misplaced your keys you may able to have your roommate or spouse let you in, but your keys can easily be picked up by anyone and then used to get into your home. This is especially true if you misplaced your keys with your identification with your address, such as if you lost your purse or had your wallet and keys stolen from your gym locker. Rather than risk a break-in by whomever picked up your keys, call a locksmith and have your locks switched with something more secure.

2. If you've had a break-in

Even if the intruders did not use keys to get into your home, it's good to call a locksmith to have your locks replaced. This is in case they stole keys while in your home, and can also help to improve its overall security. Note how the intruders got into your home and ask the locksmith for suggestions on how to increase security in that area. If they jimmied open a window, upgrade your  window locks. If they broke open your door wall to the patio, have that lock replaced with something more secure.

3. After loaning out your keys

You may trust that neighbor or friend to whom you've loaned out your keys, but what if someone else picked up your keys while visiting them? A teenage friend of their child or another neighbor may have been visiting and swiped your keys and made copies, and this puts you at risk of a break-in. Call a locksmith to have you locks rekeyed.

4. After a roommate moves out

As with a neighbor, you may trust your roommate with their copy of your keys but what about their friends? They may have loaned out their key to someone else, or another person may have swiped them to make a copy and break in at a later date. Rather than risk this, change your locks after a roommate moves out.
