Some sensible security advice for homes & business in Canton

  • Keep your keys secure: Make sure that all keys are kept in a safe and secure location. Avoid leaving keys in easily accessible places, such as under doormats or in flower pots.
  • Use high-quality locks: Install high-quality locks on all doors and windows. This will help to deter burglars and make it harder for them to gain access to your property.
  • Install an alarm system: Consider installing an alarm system that will alert you and the authorities if there is a break-in.
  • Keep your property well-lit: Make sure that the exterior of your property is well-lit, particularly around doors and windows. This will make it harder for burglars to approach your property unnoticed.
  • Regularly review security measures: It’s important to regularly review your security measures to ensure that they are still effective. This might include checking the quality of your locks, updating your alarm system, and improving your lighting.
  • Be cautious when giving out keys: If you need to give out keys to contractors, cleaners or other third parties, make sure that you trust them and keep a record of who has been given a key.
  • Consider additional security measures: Depending on the level of security you require, you might want to consider additional measures such as CCTV cameras, security grilles or reinforced doors.

Remember that security is an ongoing process, and it’s important to regularly review and update your measures to ensure that your property remains secure.

Canton Cardiff Lock Change on new Tenancy

Commercial locksmith Canton

When the tenancy changed on a commercial property in Canton Cardiff we replaced the locks on the doors.

Why should you change locks on a new commercial property tenancy?

Changing locks on a new commercial property tenancy is a vital security measure. Firstly, it ensures that you have complete control over access to your premises. Previous tenants or employees might still possess keys, posing a security risk. Secondly, it safeguards your assets and sensitive information. By installing new locks, you minimize the chances of unauthorized entry, theft, or data breaches. Additionally, it enhances your legal position in case of disputes or insurance claims related to security breaches. Ultimately, changing locks offers peace of mind, establishing a secure foundation for your business operations and protecting your investment in the new property.
