Locks keep our homes, businesses, people, pets, assets and possessions safe from intruders, criminals, and unwanted guests. We rely on them every day and it is a serious problem when they don’t perform correctly. Lock failures have the potential to result in lock-ins, lockouts, and the uncertainty and stress of knowing that your residential or commercial property is left vulnerable without proper protection. When you notice that your lock has seen better days, has constantly failed you, or hasn’t been performing properly, professional lock and key services are needed right away. First Lock & Security Technologies outline some of the common signs your door locks need to be serviced and how we can help below.
When Should a Door Lock Be Serviced?
A reliable lock on your door is necessary 24/7. From providing you with adequate security to getting you in and out of the door each day without a hitch, a properly functioning locking mechanism is essential. As you use locks almost every day, they understandably experience some wear and tear that eventually lead to damage resulting in the need for repairs or replacements. Some of the most common signs your home or commercial door locks need to be serviced include:
– Physical damage to the lock
– Difficulty turning the lock or handle
– Loose mechanics or mechanisms
– Lock cylinder turns but does not secure the door
– Latch has become misaligned or damaged
– Key continuously gets stuck in the handle
– Breaking a key in the lock
