Why You Should Get Professional Maintenance On Your Important Locks


Does your building use a significant number of locks to keep the building secure or to keep specific things within the building under additional protection? You might already do a variety of different maintenance tasks around your building in order to keep your property in good shape, but remembering to have professional maintenance done on your locks specifically could also be a good idea. Here's why you should come up with a plan with a local locksmith for regular locks maintenance.

Extend Lock Lifespan

When you buy a commercial-grade lock for your building, you have expectations that it will last for many years if not decades. But if people are not careful when they turn the lock or insert the key, the lock could pick up wear and tear sooner than expected. Regular lock maintenance will extend your lock's lifespan so you can get the most value out of your investment in each lock.

Prevent Accidental Jamming

As the lubrication inside a lock dries out over time or certain parts become worn out, it becomes more likely that a key will get stuck when someone inserts it and tries to turn the lock. An accidental jamming like this could leave that person — as well as anyone who tries to enter the building after them — locked out until a locksmith can arrive to fix the problem and let people in.

Prevent a Lockout From a Broken Lock

The worst case scenario of course is if an employee puts a lock into its place but instead of just jamming the key, they accidentally cause something inside the lock to snap or otherwise break, and now you'll need a whole new lock installed. This will once again delay people from getting into the building and it might also cause a bit of a security risk for your business until a new lock can be put into place to replace the one that just broke.

Maintenance is Less Expensive Than Replacement

Commercial grade locks can be a significant expense to your bottom line if you suddenly have to start replacing more than one of them due to excessive wear and tear or employees not being careful. By doing regular lock maintenance, you can have a locksmith switch out a worn-down part without replacing the entire thing. This will extend your lock's lifespan and protect your bottom line. Contact a local locksmith to discuss your needs.
