Change Door Locks

You and your family just bought a new house. Before you move everything in, the seller hands you the keys and says congratulations on being the proud owner of your new home. 

A few years later, you are grocery shopping. After you check out at the counter with everything that you need, you reach into your pockets to grab your keys and they aren’t there. You frantically scramble through your bags to try to find them, but they are nowhere in sight. 

Customer service announces you lost your keys, requesting anyone who finds them return them to the customer service desk immediately. You keep an eye on your car while some of the store’s associates go over each aisle with a fine-tooth comb. Unfortunately, your keys are nowhere in sight. 

Thankfully, you have a backup set of car keys. Your significant other comes to bring them to you and you take your car home. 

Why are these situations important?

They describe two opportunities in which you should change your door locks. When you move into a new home, you want to believe that the previous owner gave you every existing copy of the house keys. 

How likely is that?

Over the years, the majority of people make multiple copies of their house keys for

  • Friends
  • Family members
  • Coworkers that can watch your house or take care of your pets

As much as you might like to believe you have every key ever made for your new home, you probably don’t. Which means a lot of people that you don’t know have access to your house anytime. 

This is a little more obvious in the second scenario. If there is any type of evidence on your keyring as to where your house is and where you park your car, you are at risk of someone stealing your car or breaking into your house. 

Why you should get your locks changed

These are just two common examples for when you should consider changing your locks. Most families don’t think of this when they move into a new house. The excitement and exhaustion of the move tend to overshadow safety when keeping you and your family safe should be of utmost importance. Since you don’t know who or how many people may have keys to your new house, you should change your locks as soon as you can. 

If your keys are lost or stolen, you should change your locks as soon as possible. Burglary and theft are serious issues. Issues that you can avoid and prevent by changing your locks immediately. 

Other reasons you may want to change your locks include

  • If you have gone through a divorce
  • If your home was burglarized
  • Or if your locks have been damaged
