If there’s one thing we can all agree on today it’s that there’s not enough hours in the day to get everything done. From work meetings, to running kids to afterschool activities, making dinner and can’t forget the laundry – we live in a society that’s always on the go and crunched for time. It’s just the way it is. But there are things that make life easier – even if just a little. Hiring gardeners, house cleaners and contractors to take care of the extra stuff you just simply don’t have time for is a great convenience.
Many will come to your home, even when you are not there, to get the job done. Even if you trust these companies to handle the job, do you think it’s wise to give them a key to your home? What happens when they are no longer employed by you?
Here’s a closer look at who you should and shouldn’t give your keys to.
Taking Back Your Keys
When you take your keys back from someone you’d no longer like accessing your home, you may feel empowered and secure, however have you ever thought about the fact that they could have made a copy of that same key? Not everyone has ill intent, but does that mean you should trust everyone you know? Common sense should tell you that house keys are to be kept sacred. If you must give keys to others for an emergency situation, you should also think about lock changes and rekeying services from a locksmith.
How a Locksmith Can Help
Just like when you lose your keys, a locksmith can be called to come out to replace and change the locks on your door as a security measure. If you’re unsure about who has access to your home, using a locksmith’s services is becoming a standard practice. It’s also increasingly being used by those who are moving into a new home or apartment and especially after a burglary. Professional locksmiths can remedy the issue by either installing all new locks and hardware for your home or rekeying your current doors so that only the new and unique key you have will work with it. Talk about feeling secure. And you should when you’re home.
