The Lehigh Valley isn’t immune to extreme cold and that cold can directly affect your locks a few ways.
Regular moisture in the air and inside the lock can freeze and cause problems with the inner workings of the lock. During regular weather, moisture usually isn’t a problem. It only truly becomes a problem when cold reaches extreme levels and can make your lock literally unusable.
While you can try to heat up your key, use deicer, or even heat up the lock itself, it may be best to call 24/7 Emergency Locksmith to take care of the issue.
Beyond the simple icing problem, your lock may also contain oil and dirt that can eventually work itself into a mess that clogs the lock as well.
During extreme cold, if you encounter a lock that isn’t working properly, don’t wait. Call 24/7 Emergency Locksmith at (484) 891-1922 and we’ll get you on the road or inside your home again!
