The changing of the seasons means there are a variety of things to do including yard work, gutter cleaning, and even a change of seasonal decorations… but the change also means weather that can affect your locks.
During the spring and summer, the additional humidity can cause the wood of doors and windows to swell making locks and deadbolts stick.
On the other hand, during fall and winter, the lack of moisture in the air can cause the opposite issues. This can mean a variety of problems that can exacerbate potential damage that may already be present.
So what do you do?
If your locks are causing any issues, your best bet is to call a locksmith.
If a lock is already beginning to have problems, the added stress from additional sticking can cause further malfunction and damage. A locksmith can assess what’s going on to see if any additional measures are needed to keep your security optimal.
