What does rekeying really mean and why would someone need to rekey their home or business place? When locksmiths are rekeying a lock, they are actually removing the pins and springs in the lock cylinder. Then, they replace them with new ones. Your ‘new lock’ will, therefore, need a new set of keys. It may seem like a task or hassle to get your house or business place rekeyed. But here are 3 great reasons when you should do so.
If you or any keyholder loses the keys
In this case, you are unaware of who may have gotten possession of your keys and what they may have done with them. So even if they are found later or returned, for security reasons you need to rekey your property.
If an employee quits or is fired
If an employee is leaving and may have returned the keys, you do not know if they made copies. Also, if an employee is fired they may be malicious and can use the key or copies they made to commit criminal activities to your residence or business place.
After a divorce or end of a common-law relationship
It doesn’t matter if the relationship ended well. If you are the one staying in the property, consider changing your locks. Rekeying them will help you secure your possessions. It will give you peace of mind since your privacy will not be compromised.
