We get it: Moving is a big deal. There are many things on your mind, and many things on your to-do list. It can be difficult to keep track of everything, and it’s easy to have tasks slip through the cracks or get put off until next week, or next year. But, one thing that is very important is getting your locks changed on your new home. Here are a few reasons why:
Think about it: The old owners of your home gave you the keys when you purchased it. But, how do you know that is the only set? We all give extra keys to friends and family members to help with watering the plants, taking care of pets, or doing other tasks while we’re out of town. This makes your home unsecure. Even if someone enters your home with a key by mistake – not knowing the house has been sold – you could experience unpleasantness and misunderstanding. It’s better to simply change your locks when you move in.
It’s important to change you locks to keep up with extra security measures. You weren’t there when the previous owners installed the locks. Do you know that the deadbolt is installed correctly? Deadbolts are useless if not properly installed. When installed correctly, they are one of the best defenses against break-ins and burglaries.
