Who has the keys to your house?
I was talking with my friend Andy Corman from A.C. Trash Hauling, he gave me an idea for a question to ask of everyone. Do you know who has your house key? For those of you who have been living in your house for quite some time, I am sure that you have a good idea. What about the new home owner, or those of you who have just been in the house for a couple of years? Did you have the locks re-keyed when you moved in? Most people's response is either "No" or "I can't remember, why?" Here is some food for thought. Have you ever given your key to the neighbor or a family member to let the pet out when you couldn't make it home on time? Have you ever left your key with someone to bring in the mail when you went on vacation? I know I have. When you think about it, most of us have. Some people still the put the key under the doormat. So that brings me back to the question of who has a copy of your key? Most people don't think of calling a locksmith out when they get their new home. Your home is usually your single most expensive investment that you make in your lives. Somehow the homes security seems to be in the back of everyone's mind. There could be dozens of people that have access to your home. Making that call to the locksmith can benefit you in a couple of ways. First you have the peace of mind in knowing that you are the only one who has the key to your home. Secondly most homes these days have a couple of locks that don't use the same key, some people even have the infamous lock that has no key. The locksmith can make you a fresh unique key to your house, but we can also solve that multiple key problem. Wow all the locks on the same key, even better a key for every lock. Keep this in mind if you are moving or have recently moved. There are a lot of expenses when purchasing a home. This is a necessity that is often over looked.
