How often should the locks be changed in a family home?

Home security is important, and whilst household locks generally do not need to be replaced unless they are malfunctioning, you may nevertheless feel that it is time to upgrade your home security system. This can be for a variety of reasons, and if so, now might be the best time to call us. In most cases we will only advise that it is worth changing your locks if you believe someone, other than you, might be able to access your home. Maybe you have had contractors working in your home or you have recently sacked an employee and they have failed to return a set of keys? Or perhaps you have had your keys stolen? Either way, it is worth being cautious to make sure your property is safe and secure to guard against unauthorised entry.
