How often to rekey a commercial lock
You've probably changed your locks at least once in your life. For example, when you moved to a new place, or someone broke into your home. In situations like that, leaving your old locks decreases the security level. Replacing all your locks might be quite expensive, so you may consider rekeying. It's the process of replacing some pins in the lock and changing the key. This service is a popular option, which is why more people want to know how it works. Probably, the most common question is – how often residential rekeying and commercial rekeying should be performed. Sure Lock & Key is ready to answer this question and provide you with any additional information you require. Also, we provide all kinds of locksmith services, so we'll gladly rekey your locks.
When should you rekey your locks
- You moved to a new facility: If you move to a new location, security should be your first priority. How much do you know about the previous owners? Can you be sure they won't return at some point to steal something? Rekeying the locks will make you feel much safer and prevent people with the old key from entering your home.
- You need to change the old locks: Despite regular maintenance, mechanical locks slowly wear down and can easily break. It will take minutes for a skillful thief to break that kind of lock. So, rekeying is a good idea if you live in an old house and don't want to ruin its authentic appearance.
- You lost your keys: Most of us have lost our keys at least once. However, you have no way of knowing if they just fell out of your bag or if someone stole them. This puts your property in potential danger of a break-in. However, it doesn't mean you have to replace your locks completely. You can simply rekey them, which is time efficient and not that expensive.
