We all have a pretty good idea of when it’s time to change our oil or even replace our running shoes, but when is it a good time to replace our door locks?
Here are a few simple situations when it’s probably a good time to give 24/7 Emergency Locksmith a call at (484) 891-1922 to talk more with us about replacing your door locks.
SOMEONE MOVED OUT
Whether or not it’s a good friend, the best roommate of all time, or even a long house guest, if someone had access to a key to your house for a period of time, it may be a good idea to replace those locks. By doing so, you’re not saying that the person who moved out was untrustworthy, it’s just smart to play it safe in these situations.
VISIBLE SIGNS OF WEAR AND TEAR
If your locks show any visible signs of wear and tear, including rust, it’s time to have a professional look at them.
ANY TIME A KEY IS LOST OR STOLEN
Don’t gamble with your safety. If you lost your key, it’s time to replace your locks. In a digital age, it’s not that hard for someone to track down where you live if they are able to connect your key to you.
YOU’RE MOVING IN
Unless your house literally had no one living in it before, there really is no way of knowing who has had access to your keys, who made copies, and who never turned their copies in.
YOU HAD A RECENT BREAK-IN
This one may be the most obvious, but if you had someone break into your home, regardless of if they broke a lock or not, means it’s time for you to contact a locksmith to make your home safe again.
