Your Locks Must Be Maintained Regularly
Most people think about reaching out to a residential locksmith when they have locked themselves out of their house. Although being locked outside can be a hassle, you might be aware that a locksmith can also offer more services than you realize. For example, it is highly recommended to get your locks checked once in a while to ensure they are still working properly, while locks repairs and replacements may be required occasionally.
You should also think about proper lock security at home, for places such as garage doors, gates, desk drawers, antique cabinets, and safes. You probably have many other locks in your house aside from the one on the front door. All of these locks will benefit from regular maintenance. House rekey and other services can be provided by a good lock and key service company.
Review your options
Now that you have thought about upgrading your locks, you should seek the advice of a professional residential locksmith for options to consider. Though a lock replacement is the first that comes to mind for most homeowners, rekeying might be a better suggestion if you are on a tight budget.
When you find out that your lock seems worn out, it's best to rekey them by getting new internal components instead of a lock replacement. This will prevent anyone with the old key from entering your home. A house rekey is a less costly alternative that can reset rekeyable locks once you need to update your lock security.
If your keys get lost, ensure that you have your locks rekeyed to keep your family, properties, and the entire house safe in case someone finds your keys. Make sure to have your home rekeyed by a reliable residential locksmith so that you will have a sense of security and peace of mind that no one can get through your current lock security.
A residential locksmith will adjust the little tumblers or what they call key pins in a lock. There are different lengths of key pins in a series allowing a key to access the lock. As soon as all the key pins line up when a specific key is inserted into the lock, the key will work to turn and open the lock. This process will provide access to a new key. The old key will not work anymore and can be thrown out. On the other hand, a lock replacement is quite expensive but is recommendable when you transfer to a new home to ensure all doors are secure with new locks.
