Home Safety Advice from Omaha Locksmiths

Big-Red-Locksmiths-Omaha-Homeowners-Stay-SafeAs Omaha locksmiths, home safety is a topic we discuss with homeowners on an almost daily basis. One thing we’ve found time and time again is even though most Omaha homeowners assume that their house is secure, that’s not always the case. Although we don’t want to frighten anyone, we do think it’s important for people to have a realistic understanding of their home’s security.

When it comes to home security, it’s important to remember that it only takes one damaged door or similar weak point to make a home vulnerable to intruders. This is especially true if you’re dealing with someone who has a specific motivation to get into your home. And even if we’re just talking about general break-ins, the fact that more than thirty percent involve force being applied to the front door means any amount of weakness will make your home more vulnerable.

What Type of Door Lock is Most Effective?

Although there are quite a few different types of locks, the one that’s always most effective for the exterior door of a home is a deadbolt lock. Like all the other elements of home safety, a deadbolt lock is only as effective as its operating condition. That’s why proper Omaha locksmiths installation and occasional maintenance are very important.

Other Home Safety Tips from Omaha Locksmiths

Does your home already have deadbolt locks on your exterior doors? If they do and the locks are in good condition, it’s easy to assume that you don’t have anything to worry about. However, if you moved into your home and never had the locks changed, there’s no way to know who may have a copy of the key to your home.

The only way to have full peace of mind is to get those locks rekeyed. Fortunately, this is a process that Big Red Locksmiths can easily take care of for you and a relatively minor investment in the overall security of your home. Another option you may want to consider is adding a peephole to one or more of your doors. This small but effective addition will make it easier for you to identify exactly who’s outside your home without needing to open your door. This is another task that Big Red Locksmiths will be happy to handle for you.
