Chances are that you have a lot of professionals on speed dial for your business, such as a plumber, electrician, and an HVAC technician. Another professional you should be working with is a locksmith. You will need to use in the following situations.
One of the most common problems you'll run into is the need to rekey the locks throughout your building. This can happen in several situations that can occur frequently. For example, if you recently had an employee leave that has keys, either from quitting or being fired, it is a good idea to change the locks. You can never be sure that they did not make duplicate keys while they had them, which gives an extra set of keys out there in the wild that you cannot keep track of.
You'll also want to use a locksmith when an employee loses a set of their keys. If their keys were attached to any identifying information regarding the business, such as in a purse or a on a key ring with an ID badge, that can tell somebody exactly what building those keys will work for.
Do not assume that having a security system in place will prevent the need to rekey the locks. While a security system will let you know if someone breaks into your business, it only takes a few seconds to steal something valuable from inside the building.
Install a Safe
While there are safes you can buy that are lightweight and easy to move, these safes do not prevent them from being stolen and broken into at a criminal's convenience. Part of having a secure safe is to make sure that it is secured within your building. Thankfully, a locksmith can help you with that.
Hire a locksmith to secure a safe within your building so that it cannot be removed. This will involve attaching it to a part of the building's structure, such as the floor or to a wall. It is the best way to ensure that the contents of your safe actually stay within your building, rather than be taken out during a break-in.
Repair Broken Locks
When you use locks as frequently as you do for a business, it is possible that the locks become worn out and stop working. For instance, keys may no longer catch on the cylinders like they once did. Instead of replacing these locks, you can have them repaired so that they use the same type of key, preventing the need to give everyone a new set of keys.
