Often times, we take for granted the protection and features that our safes provide. It is all too easy to put the care and maintenance of your safe on the backburner. You should know that for your safe to take care of your valuables, you need to take care of your safe.
We suggest you can start taking better care of your safe, here are our top four maintenance tips for your commercial safe, including
- Treating your safe with care
- Cleaning your safe regularly
- Having your safe inspected
- Performing your own safe maintenance when necessary
1) Treat Your Safe With Care
Just because you have a giant, plated container that is built to withstand blunt-force and fire damage, does not mean that you need to play rough with your safe. Repeated blows and drops can cause serious damage to the sensitive interior mechanisms and components of your safe.
What good is your safe going to be to you if you can’t lock it properly, or get it opened? Be gentle with your safe and store it somewhere that it is out of harm’s way.
2) Clean Your Safe Regularly
One small step that goes a long way is in making sure that you clean your safe on a regular basis. This is going to do much more than making sure that your safe looks nice. Cleaning your safe is going to prevent dust, oils, and grime from building up in and on your safe, which could prevent the safety components from functioning properly.
Make sure you use a dry or damp cloth to clean your safe, but do not use any polishes, as they can actually cause damage to the exterior of the safe.
3) Have Your Safe Inspected and Serviced
You should have your commercial safe serviced annually by our certified professionals. You can often find that the manufacturers of your commercial safe may know some of our professionals and if not you can contact us here.
4) Perform Your Own Maintenance
You can even take the liberty of doing some of your own safe maintenance. Adding a little lubrication to your locking mechanisms once a year can make a big difference in the maintenance, functionality, and lifetime of your safe.
