Five Situations When Rekeying Locks is Necessary

January 6, 2020

Ensuring security should be the utmost priority in both residential and commercial establishments. Not only does it prevent you from incurring additional expenses due to lost or stolen items, it also assures you that no harm will be done to your family and employees. The barrier between safety and vulnerability lies solely on your security system, for example - locks. Incidents that lead to these systems being damaged or compromised should not be tolerated. You should be able to monitor the condition of your security system and be aware at all times if it does not function the way it is supposed to. Below are five situations when rekeying locks is necessary.

Property Break-Ins

When burglars target homes, they usually focus on the breaking in by tampering with the locks. Whether they succeed or not, this tampering can cause severe problems to the lock that can make it easier for another break-in to occur or prevent it from working properly. Be mindful of your locks and ensure that they are in good working condition for maximum security.

Relocating to a New Property

If you’ve recently moved into a new home, hire a mobile locksmith to change all of the locks on the property. Even if you trust who you purchased the home from, there’s always a chance that an unknown third party still has keys to the property.

Misplaced or Stolen Keys

The simplest way to address missing or stolen keys may be to use a spare set or hire a locksmith to replace them. However, taking this approach still means that someone has access to your home. This danger may be even more present if the keys were lost or stolen along with personal identification that lists your address—such as your driver’s license. For this reason, it’s best to have the locks rekeyed immediately.      

Occupant or Staff Changes

Whether you’ve had to kick out a troublesome roommate or have finalized a challenging divorce, having people leave your home is usually a good time to have locks rekeyed. In some cases, these individuals may use their keys to re-enter the property—and even take items in the process.

Old and Non-Functional Locks

After several years of repetitive use, door locks scan start to experience wear that affects their internal mechanisms. As these systems age or experience damage, they become easier to pick and present a higher risk of jamming. To simplify your security, have a mobile locksmith come to your house to replace any locks that aren’t completely intact.
