What You Need to Know About Locksmith Services During COVID-19

Posted on

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced thousands of businesses nationwide to close their doors to the public for months, and information regarding what businesses are considered essential has been murky and difficult to determine.

Dallas Area Locksmith is happy to report that we are still open for business via our mobile locksmith services, and we are ready to help you secure your home or business in these uncertain times.  What can we do for you? Here are some suggested services we can still safely provide even with pandemic lockdowns in place.

Residential Door Hardware Upgrades

Given the amount of time everyone is spending at home with their loved ones right now, door lock security has never been more important. Both deadbolt and door handle locks should be installed and in good repair to reduce the risk of break-ins. Chances are you already know of one or two entrances to your home that have old locks in need of an upgrade. Moreover, the door handle and deadbolt cover plate may be in need of replacement.

We also offer services for the installation of advanced electronic smart locks, which are becoming more popular with homeowners who already have a video security system or video doorbell installed. If you’ve been considering an upgrade to a key fob or smartphone accessible home locking system, we would be happy to help.

Now is the perfect time to have one of our mobile locksmiths come out and upgrade the locks, deadbolts and cover plates so that your home stays secure against forced entry. All of our technicians follow CDC safety and social distance guidelines while on the job, and we never send a technician out on a call if they are sick. While at your home, they will wear masks and gloves to protect you and them from potential infection. Moreover, all phones and tools are sanitized regularly with disinfectant to prevent further spread of COVID-19.

Automotive & Residential Emergency Lockout Services

Everyone locks themselves out of their home or car at some point in their lives. There is no feeling quite like the panic of realizing you’ve just locked yourself out, too.

It’s likely that if you are a small business owner, you still have significant inventory on hand that needs to be secured during the lockdown. Are you certain that your locks and security features are sufficient to keep your inventory safe?
