Locks are an essential feature in regards to the safety of any residential or commercial property. It is quite unfortunate that a majority of people do not take ample time to check the locks in their homes or offices. Most of the time they do not follow the required instructions to maintain effective locks for their properties. Before you start unpacking in your new home or office, it paramount that you are aware of the importance of changing your locks and when to do it. There are two main reasons it is important to change your locks, and these are:
1. Enhanced security
The rates at which old or copied keys are used to access properties is astonishing. There are numerous cases where professional locksmiths record that there was no forced entry during a burglary. Regardless of whether it is a business, house or flat, you never know how many keys are in the hands of old tenants, residents, cleaners, staff and maintenance people. Changing the locks gives them a fresh start where you can enjoy great peace of mind knowing that you are in control over the people who have the keys. This also helps to meet insurance requirements as many home insurance policies require you to change the locks if you do not want your claim to be refused if your property is broken into.
Nowadays, a majority of people prefer to unify their locks so that they can operate using only one key. This is another point to the importance of changing your locks as it saves you the confusion of having multiple keys which can easily get lost. It is not only beneficial to homeowners who can access numerous locks with one key, but it may be great for people who own rental property, joint owners of one property or body corporate firms that require a master key to access many locks within a building (s).
Now that you are aware of the importance of having the locks changed, here are some good times on when to do it.
Moving into a previously rented or owned property
There is a high chance that people who lived or worked in the building still have keys to the place. Despite the fact that people are required to hand in all the key copies they have, it is not always the case. It is essential that all the locks are changed before you start moving in to ensure that only authorized people can access the building.
Moving into any new home or office
Most people would say that the locks do not need to be changed because they are moving into a new home or office. It is not true as it is a wise move to have the locks changed before you settle in to be on the safe side. There are probably many people who were involved in the construction of the property that may have access to the building and could cause unnecessary trouble.
Moving into an old building
Notwithstanding the challenges of upgrading and maintaining some features, an old house can be a gem. However, it is important to note that a majority of older homes had less secure locks, perhaps because there was no need for sophisticated locking systems back in the day. Nowadays, the story has changed as home invasions are some of the common security issues that homeowners face on a day to day basis. After acquiring an old home, on top of the “to-do list” should be to check and change locks so that they can serve the requirements of your home security.
Worn out or faulty locks
There is no need of risking the trouble of having to deal with breakdowns and malfunctions of worn-locks or broken locks as it can be quite frustrating on your end. Your life can be a lot easier if you just decide to change the locks. It can be considered as an opportunity for upgrading the locking system. All you have to do is consult with expert locksmiths to discuss the kind of locks that need to be installed.
Misplaced or lost keys
Another good time to change your locks is when you have lost or misplaced your keys. It makes sense to err on the safety side. Do not think twice about changing the locks, thinking that the person who finds them will not know where to use them. Call Diamondback Lock and Key today!
