When do you need a key duplication service?
Basically, when you give your key to someone, I’m sure he is a person you trust. Having an unlimited permission to go in and out of a property, it is a critical issue. Nobody wants his keys to be shared with a criminal or even a person with drugs or alcohol issues. When you duplicate your house key, it’s obvious that you need to make sure he is a honest and fair person.
What should you consider before giving your key to someone?
Your child is a great example for someone you can trust, but you need to make sure to explain him or her, the risks that come along with the responsibility of holding the house keys. A little kid can be manipulated, so made it clear. No one else, even your friend, child or other family member isn’t allowed to get the key, even for a few moments.
