Controlling who can come in and out of your building is a big part of maintaining the security of your building. If you use locks and keys to control who can come into your building, there may come a day when you need to switch out all of your locks and keys.
Rekeying is the process of changing out your locks and making new keys available to unlock and lock your doors. There are several situations when you should move ahead with the rekeying process to maintain the safety and security of your building:
- You discover that someone has access to a key who should not have the key.
- Someone who has left your company currently has a key, and they pose a security risk to your operation.
- Someone broke into your property.
- There is a risk to your building’s safety and security due to the locks and keys currently in use.
Although you should plan on rekeying your locks when any of these situations happen, you should also plan on having your locks rekeyed every six months to two years. This will ensure your locks and keys are as safe and secure as possible.
