Replacing the locksmith on your property can either be a complete hardware replacement or it could just be re-keying the existing locks. Here are 4 reasons to replace locksmith in your home.
You bought a new home
Buying a new home is an exciting time. Although your home is new to you, it may not be to someone else. You never really know if you got all the keys to the property or if there are more around. It's a good idea to update the locks on a newly owned property.
Your tenants have moved out of your property
Unless you have used a restricted master key system to secure your rental property, there may be duplicate keys of which you are unaware. It's a good idea to update the locks between tenants. You may also consider upgrading the locksmith to use a restricted master key system.
Old or broken locksmith
An exchange by the locksmith is necessary in any case if the existing hardware is defective or defective. Locks that don't work the way they're supposed to are as good as no locks to have at all. It's a good idea to check the locksmiths on your property every 6-12 months to ensure they are working as expected. They can also do some maintenance on locks and clean them to ensure they stay in good condition for as long as possible.
You've been broken into or you've lost your keys
If you've been broken into, you may be left with broken or damaged locks. Another reason to replace locksmiths after a burglary is that keys may have been among stolen items. Losing your keys can also compromise the security of your home. Instead of swapping out the hardware, you might just want to rekey the property.
Some other reasons to change the locks around your property can be lending the keys to someone or a breakup or divorce.
