Knowing When It’s Time to Rekey Your Home

rekey your homeDo you remember the last time you rekeyed the locks in your house? For many homeowners, the answer is “never.” This shouldn’t be the case. When you rekey your home, you’re taking an important step toward protecting your family and property. This is certainly not something you need to do every year or even every other year. However, there are specific times when rekeying is highly recommended. Here are several scenarios that warrant a call to a professional locksmith.

1. Relocating

Have you recently moved into a new home, condo, or apartment? When you move somewhere new, it’s always a good idea to have a locksmith rekey your home. This ensures prior residents or tenants cannot access your space.

2. When Someone Moves Out

Whether you had a paying renter or were just doing someone a favor, it’s important to rekey your home once that person has left. Too many house keys floating around makes your home vulnerable. Those extra keys can fall in the wrong hands, and you would never know about it.

3. After a Break-In

No one is ever prepared for a break-in, but when it occurs it’s vital that you act quickly. One of the first steps is contacting a lock and key professional for repairs, as well as rekeying all the locks.
