Case 1: When an Employee Quits
If an employee previously had access to the keys to your office and is now no longer working for you, then it is essential that you have your locks changed. Reasons like ‘he was trustworthy’ and ‘he’s worked with us for years!’ are silly because you can never be too careful, especially with your confidential business data and information.
Case 2: When You Renovate Your Home or Office
After your house or work place is complete and fully renovated, have the locks changed. Your contractor may be trustworthy and dependable but he may have handed the keys to other workers who may not be very reliable. It is always best to be on the safe side and hire a Commercial Locksmith and have all your locks changed.
Case 3: When You Lose Your Keys
Change the entire locking system if you have ‘mysteriously’ lost your keys and are unable to find them. In cases like these, it is best to do this as quickly as possible without any delays. Your keys might have been stolen; in which case your home would become an easy target for the burglars.
Case 4: When There’s Been A Break-in
If you already had a break in and continue using the same locks, you are making a huge mistake. It is essential that you improve as well as change your home’s security after the break-in to avoid any further loss in the future.
Case 5: When There’s A Change of Tenant
If you are a landlord and your tenant has moved out, then have the locks changed. They might have handed their keys back but they may still have made copies. Your new tenants would be unsafe if you continue to use the same locking system. Simply hire a Residential Locksmith and get the locks changed so both you and the new tenant can experience peace of mind.
Case 6: You’ve Just moved into a new house
The previous owner of the house may have copies of the keys, giving them access to the house you’re living in. Don’t take your family’s safety for granted. It is best to install a new security system for this house with new locks to ensure complete safety.
