Q&A by Locksmith Miami Beach:
What security issues should I consider when moving to a house?
Moving into a home can be exciting, especially if it is your first home. But you are wise to consider security when you move in. Check all of the door and window locks carefully to ensure they are secure. Replace any window locks that can be worked from the outside. You should also replace any deadbolts or door locks that are older models and can easily be broken. To prevent entry by anyone with keys from the previous owner, you should either change the locks or have them rekeyed. Finally, call our locksmith Miami Beach office and talk with an expert on youu needs
What’s the difference between changing the locks and rekeying?
There are many times when you might want to increase the security of your home, or restrict access from those who may possess keys. Your two options are changing the locks or having the locks rekeyed. Rekeying locks means that the locksmith uses the same lock but changes the mechanism slightly so that a new key is required. Rekeying locks is a good option if you have high quality locks on your home. If you have cheaper locks you should simply replace them. Another situation in which you might want to rekey locks is when you have house guests. You can give keys to your guests then have the locks rekeyed when they leave.

Why is it important to use a licensed locksmith?
It can be tempting to use the locksmith with the cheapest quote given for the work you need done. But there are some good reasons to use a licensed locksmith. First, a licensed locksmith will be familiar with high quality locks and certified in certain brands. Second, a licensed locksmith is more trustworthy and reliable. An unlicensed locksmith might be shady, make copies of your keys or otherwise compromise the security of your home. In addition, an unlicensed locksmith may have so little knowledge that they make your locks worse instead of better, or damage property while trying to gain entry.
