What a mild winter we are having!
As I was driving my van into central London today I decided to go to a café for a bite to eat for Lunch. The first day back at work can be pretty depressing after the Christmas holidays and it got me thinking about how mild the weather has been, certainly compared to last year. Yet when I looked outside it seemed like torrential rain and wind was beating against the window pretty much on cue.
Now every year is different but as North London Locksmiths we see different things affecting locks both the locks themselves as well as the doors and how they work etc. One thing that we also see is call outs are happening simply because good care isn’t taken on the locks.
What do I mean by this? Well here are a few things to protect your locks:
1. Lubricate them every 3 to 4 months with WD40
2. Make sure your door closer (if you have one) is not slamming
3. Make sure you have an original key to your lock that all copies are copied from.
4. Open and close your back doors during the winter to free the locks up during damp and cold periods.
Doing these small things may assist you in saving money on North London Locksmiths. Thanks for reading and enjoy your week!
