5 reasons to call an emergency locksmith after a break-in

When an entry door to your home has been picked or forcefully broken it is important to have it fixed as quickly and professionally as possible. Here we give five reasons why an emergency locksmith is essential when dealing with a break in.


Peace of mind

Peace of mind

Many victims of burglary feel exposed and vulnerable following a break in, often suffering from anxiety and difficulty sleeping. Repairing a damaged door and fitting a new lock system as soon as possible offers peace of mind that your home has been restored to its previous level of protection and that you have regained some control over who can access your property.



The sooner a broken door is fixed, the better the chance that the damage can be repaired properly without the need for an expensive replacement. Even if an intruder has been excessively forceful when gaining entry to your home, a professional locksmith will be able to repair and strengthen your door quickly, before structural issues can take hold.



Being burgled is never a pleasant experience and certainly one you will look to prevent happening again. An emergency locksmith will not only re-secure your home, but can advise on new installations such as specialist ABS Locks that prevent thieves from picking, bumping, drilling or snapping locks, leaving your home safer and far better protected than before.



If you have an insurance policy that covers you against theft or loss of home contents, insurers will take great interest at the security of your property. Installing new and upgraded lock systems prior to a break in is a great indication to insurance companies that you take home security and loss prevention seriously.


Home-wide Security

If a burglar has found a vulnerability in one of your doors, it is highly likely that other entry points in the property share those characteristic weaknesses. An emergency locksmith can check the condition and assess the resistance of the other door locks in your home, providing a great opportunity to repair and upgrade the lock systems across the property.
