Pop quiz! Which residential mechanical device do you use regularly, yet neglect the most? It’s the same thing we depend upon for the majority of our home’s security, and if you’re thinking door locks, you’re right! Most of us do little to nothing to maintain these essential devices, yet we all expect them to perform properly at all times. When they don’t, we panic. That’s why you should find a Reno mobile locksmith before you need one.
Commonplace Lock Problems
Door locks that appear to be functioning may have issues you can’t see – issues that will ultimately lead to failure. Some commonplace lock problems that are internal, and therefore invisible from the outside, include:
- Deadbolts that don’t fully extend
- Uneven strike alignment
- Damaged deadlatches
You can avoid problems like these with a good mobile locksmith. Here in Reno, a certified technician from AllSafe Lock & Key can assess your home’s door locks for these and other conditions to make sure they’re in good working condition. Having your locks professionally serviced will help ensure that your locks are working just as the manufacturer intended.
Upgrades & Rekeys
Maybe you aren’t the first person to live in your home, or you’ve given keys to people from old relationships. Either way, you can’t know for sure that you and your family members are the only ones with access to your home. Fortunately, a good locksmith can solve that issue by rekeying your locks or upgrading your locks to a quality product that you won’t find at the hardware store. Upgrading your home’s door locks has another benefit, too. It’s a cost-effective alternative to something like an alarm system. Home alarms can be useful, but they’re more of informational service instead of a preventative one. Their job is to alert you or the authorities when your home is entered without authorization. Plus, ongoing monitoring costs can also be cost-prohibitive for those who may need them most.
A certified mobile locksmith like AllSafe Lock & Key in Reno can help you here, too. Let our technician improve your home’s security by reinforcing its entry points and windows. A door’s weakest part typically includes the door jamb, the door edge (where the locks are installed), and the hinges. A certified and experienced locksmith can install reinforcement hardware to shore up these areas of vulnerability.
For senior citizens or those with disabilities, a good locksmith can also make accommodations to door locks for easier access. Ask AllSafe Lock & Key for suggestions and recommendations to suit your particular situation. We’re happy to help!
Don’t Wait Until You’re Locked Out
Don’t wait for an emergency lockout scenario. Doing so puts you in a position of anxiety and pressure as you frantically search for a locksmith. Not only are you at greater risk for a locksmith scam, you don’t have the luxury of finding a local locksmith who is certified, reliable, and reasonably priced. Instead, find a good Reno locksmith like AllSafe Lock & Key before you need one, and you’ll enjoy the peace of mind that comes from having a reliable professional there when you need help.
