When you really think about it, one of the first and greatest lines of defence and security that your home has is the simple lock and key systems that define the boundaries of what is outside and what is inside. Keys are something that are so small and so easily lost at the bottom of a bag, we can sometimes forget just how integral they are to the access and safety of our properties! When you lose them, it is a whole world of hassle, but what about when you need to change them?
What are some reasons I might rekey my house or business?
Here at Terry’s we specialise in everything home lock related, and we love to spread the word about everything that can help you to remain as secure as possible in your home. Here are some common reasons why it might be time to rekey your house using a Gold Coast locksmith.
- It’s always a good practise to rekey your home if you have just moved into it a purchased property. We’re not insinuating that anything sinister with the previous owners is going to occur, but you never know how many of their extended family and friends might have been given a key down the years.
- Another occasion when you might want to change the locks and rekey your home is if you have gone through a rather messy breakup or divorce. Unfortunately, some ex partners don’t respect boundaries and property, so it is a good idea to make sure they don’t have easy access.
- You might lose your keys and assume it was an innocent mistake, but you never know who might have picked them up or who might have actually pinched them from you. It is always safer to assume the worst and protect yourself and your home from any potential intruders.
- A less ‘person’ based reason that people rekey their homes is the simple fact that the locks are hard to open! You don’t want to get caught out in a situation arriving home in the middle of the night, only to find that you can’t get into your own house!
So, if you are in need of the services of a Gold Coast locksmith, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. The professional and dedicated team will always go everything they can to resolve your home security problems in as fast a time as possible without cutting any corners on quality.
