Locks age and undergo wear and tear just as other frequently used items do. Over time, the tumblers inside a door lock begin to wear down as the home or business owner locks and unlocks the door multiple times throughout the day or night. If the wearing-down action is not taken care of by a professional Richmond Hill locksmith, the day will come when the owner realizes he is unable to unlock the door–or that he is unable to rely on the ability of the lock to keep the door closed against unwanted intruders.
When Locks Break:
Door locks can malfunction unexpectedly. If they haven’t worn down from repeated usage, the interior mechanism can jam, keeping a business owner or homeowner from being able to turn the clock with his key–let alone unlock the door and get inside. Short of breaking into his own property, the owner has to have a reliable fall-back so he can get into his home or business.
A professional locksmith is equipped with the tools and knowledge to help someone who needs to get into his home or business. In some instances, this may require realigning the locks, then reconditioning them so they function correctly. In other situations, however, the door lock will have to be changed entirely.
Replacing Malfunctioning Locks:
Should the malfunctioning lock need to be replaced, the locksmith is able to remove the old, non-working lock and replace it with a new locking system. It shouldn’t matter whether the call comes in before or after hours, in the middle of the night, during the weekend or on a holiday. Locksmiths provide a vital service; as such, they need to be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, even during a holiday.
Commercial and Residential:
For a residential lock-out situation, the locksmith can either repair or replace the homeowner’s broken locks. Because the homeowner may not want several sets of keys for each door of his home, all locks will have to be replaced, whether any of them are malfunctioning or not. Once the new locks have been installed, the locksmith will provide the homeowner with the needed numbers of new, customized keys.
For a commercial lock-out, the locksmith will need to repair the current locks or, if they are too damaged for repair, he will have to replace them. Again, all door locks for the business will need replacement. Because more than one person in the business is likely to need to lock and unlock the doors, the locksmith will have to provide keys for everyone authorized to hold a key.
Range of Lock-Change Services:
Locksmiths are expected to provide a laundry list of services to customers inconvenienced by a lock-out. These include:
º Lock alignment
º Reconditioning of existing locks
º Replacement of door locks
º Lock repair, all types of locks
