Home security is an essential part of keeping not only yourself and your family safe but also keeping your possessions out of the hands of those you do not know. When moving into a new residence, or going through a major life change, make sure your home is secure. Below are five signs that you need to rekey locks at your residence.
Moving into a New Apartment
Moving into a new apartment is an exciting time. You’re anxious to start new and make the space feel like your own. Before you move anything in, you’ll want to start thinking about the security of your new home. One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to ensure that your home is safe and secure is to rekey locks. Can you really start to feel as though your apartment is your own knowing that the previous tenants or their friends might still have keys to your locks? Your best bet is to invest in locksmith services to rekey locks, providing you with peace of mind and security.
It might not have happened to you yet, but chances are it will happen at some point. Losing your keys, never to be seen again. While it might be tempting to have a copy made from the spare that you still have, this isn’t the best solution. Don’t take the chance that someone finds your lost keys and is able to grant themselves access to your apartment. To mitigate any chance of someone being able to enter your apartment, contact Artie’s Locksmith to rekey your locks.
Keys Stop Working
Locks and keys are like everything else, they don’t last forever. Over time the teeth of your keys can wear down or accumulate rust, making them challenging to use, or unable to open a lock at all. When this unfortunate situation happens, instead of getting a new key, it is going to be in your best interest to rekey locks because it is probably in a similar condition.
Following a Break-In
If your apartment has already been the target of a break-in, you’ll want to take the necessary steps to protect yourself from it happening again. One way to protect yourself is to rekey locks. This will provide you with a feeling of security. Additionally, having a professional locksmith come to your apartment they can determine where else you might be lacking in security.
