Should You Rekey Your Home?
So you have a new house. It’s exciting. You want to have it painted and get a few things done, like your floors, paint, counters, and more. You hand out some keys, or hide a key and tell your contractors where to look. However, here’s a problem. A few people are not honest. No surprise, but you still do not give that key a second thought. You do not rekey after all the work is done and you move in. After a few weeks, you notice things missing and some strange things out of place.
You can avoid this scenario by having your house rekeyed after all the work is done and before you move in. This ensures that no one has keys or there are no stray keys running around. Most of all it gives you peace of mind and security in your new home.
In addition, people know when you’re moving in, and this goes beyond your neighbors. Crooks ride around just looking for the movers. They slide in unnoticed and just walk off with stuff, and you think you lost something and blow it off as a lost item. One great word of advice. If you have not invited someone to your home, then Do Not let them in your home.
Always, always ask for I.D and know who you’re dealing with. Do not settle for, ” well I was told to come by and check your filters and fittings.” I mean really? Yes! They have that kind of gall and are that brave. Crooks play on you just not knowing.
So always ask questions and always ask for IDs.
