All mechanical devices can all benefit from regular upkeep to help keep them in tip-top shape. Your locks are no different, and with routine maintenance, you can help your locks as well as secure your home or commercial premises as a whole. Keeping your home or business safe is always your top priority, and with repair and lock replacement services you can do just that. In today’s blog, First Lock & Security Technologies outlines some helpful tips on when you should have your locks serviced and when having them replaced is a better option.
You Should Change the Locks when Moving into a New Home or Business Premises?
Nothing can compare to that first moment when you walk into your new residential or commercial premises and begin to make it your own. However, unless your home or business has just been rekeyed by you, having your locks rekeyed from a local locksmith is a highly suggested first move. Even on a new construction build, various contractors may still have a copy of the keys. Rekeying newer locks and those that are in good condition or completely replacing older and broken locks, will help keep anyone who may have had access to your property in the past, out of your home or commercial buildings now and in the future. This helps keep occupants and property safe and secure.
Can I Rekey a Lock If I Lost the Key?
Losing your keys can be a frustrating ordeal, especially if you have several keys on your key chain. However, it can also leave your property open to invasion, theft and/or vandalism if you don’t rekey or change your locks promptly. If you lose your keys, one of your first moves should be to rekey or replace the locks on your home or business premises in order to ensure the safety of belongings, building occupants and guests to your property.
Rekey to Free a Sticking Lock Problem
Have you ever put your key in the lock, only to find it just won’t turn? Old age and/or the elements and other environmental factors may have taken their toll on your lock, making it nearly impossible to turn as intended. Various lock services mean your locks will return once again to perfect working order. If, however, your locks are beyond repair or their age dictates the end of their life is near, then complete lock replacement can bring new, state of the art locks to your property for increased security.
Locks have Different Keys
If you find you have different keys for different locks on your premises and you want them all to match one single key, as long as all the locks are of the same brand or keyway, rekeying locks can achieve this goal.
