You do not know for sure how many keys were made for the old locks on your new home or how many individuals had access to these keys.

Instead of incurring the cost of changing all the locks on your new property, it might be a good idea to just have the locks rekeyed. This is a service that can help you save a lot of money.

Here is everything that you need to know about rekey lock and cylinder services:

Why Choose Re-keying?

One of the reasons why rekeying the locks on your new home can be such a great option is because it is the cheaper alternative to having all of the locks changed. This means that you do not need to buy all new locks for the property. All you have to do is to choose high quality re-keying services that allow the lock to be re-keyed so that a new key is required.

With Re-keying, the previous key for all of the locks will no longer work, but you do not have to buy new locks entirely. You really do have the ability to save a lot of money by choosing lock rekey services that are designed to be the simple solution for you.

Because of this, you have to remind yourself that maintaining the security of our home is of the utmost importance in order to preserve the safety of our loved ones and treasured possessions. One of the simplest and most cost-effective strategies to strengthen any home security system is to rekey the locks rather than install new ones. But, how can you know for sure when it’s time to rekey your locks?

After Breaking Up with Your Partner

Unluckily, not all break-ups are based on a mutual decision and carried out in a civil manner.  In the event of a bad separation or divorce where you keep the rights to a previously shared house, you have to really think about rekeying your locks. This will guarantee the safety of both your house and yourself. Human nature can be highly unpredictable, and so proactively avoiding any chancy encounters by denying your ex-partner access to the house whenever you are not there might be the best course of action.

If this is the case, you have to contact Mya Locksmith. We are available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. This includes holidays and weekends. 

Rekeying After a Break-in

If someone really wants to gain entry to your home, possibilities are that they will eventually find a way. Fortunately, though, most burglaries are crimes of chance instead of intentional attacks on a specific homeowner. Burglars like to strike hard and fast, gaining entry before the neighbors have a chance to become suspicious. Thus, the more obstacles there are to entering your home, the more likely it is that a burglar will move on to a less well-defended target. If your house has already been the target of a burglary, taking the crucial steps to secure yourself from future invasions by rekeying the locks will not only provide a sense of comfort and security but also help to subside the feeling of violation caused by the first break-in. Furthermore, having an expert locksmith appear at your home to upgrade your security system will intimidate any potential intruders, as well as remind neighbors to upgrade their own system. 

If you have fallen victim to a burglary, contact Mya Locksmith right away and we will walk you through your options for high grade and pick-resistant security.

Keys Won’t Work Anymore

Door locks and keys don’t last forever, just like other things. Over time, the teeth of the key can wear down or accumulate rust, rendering it hard to use or even totally unable to open its designated lock. One solution would be to just replace the key, but if the condition of your key has been compromised by the passage of time, it is entirely possible that your lock has also suffered from similar erosion. To ensure effortless accessibility for those with keys, and security against those without, we recommend having your locks rekeyed once every five years.

Lost Keys

At some point or another, everyone has misplaced their keys. This occurs to even the best of us. However, what happens whenever the key to your house simply mysteriously vanishes, never to be seen again? The most obvious answer inexperienced homeowners turn to is to have another key made. But, practiced homeowners know that sometimes the most obvious solutions aren’t always the best ones. Are you willing to chance a stranger finding your missing keys, and—worst case scenario—making use of them? To prevent any chance of a burglary, call a locksmith to have all of the exterior doors, including the one leading from your home into the garage, rekeyed.

Moving to a New House

The old is quickly replaced with the new ones once you move into your new house. Everything is transformed to fit your unique needs and tastes as a homeowner. You have the walls repainted, the rooms refurnished, and you begin to make a place that you can truly call home. But is it really “yours” when you still have the previous owners’ door locks?  Can any new homeowner really even feel comfortable when they have no way of knowing who has access to these locks, and when it’s entirely possible that the friends and family of the previous owner—complete strangers to you—may still have a spare set of keys? Protect your home and your family from unwanted intruders by having your locks professionally rekeyed whenever you purchase a new home.
