A Little Maintenance Goes A Long Way
When it comes to locks and door systems, the key to avoiding costly problems lies in preventive maintenance. Especially during the cold winter months, when we rely most on our locks and doors to help keep us warm, protect us from snow, wind, and fire, secure us from unwanted intruders and keep businesses open and holiday shopping flowing. But as temperatures drop, worn locks can freeze and door frames can contract, causing alignment to shift, compromising function and hardware. Resulting in a poor fit between the lock and the door itself. Home and business owners may find that they have a hard time getting the key to turn in a deadbolt lock when both locking and unlocking exterior doors. High volumes of traffic can wear out seals, hinges, knobs, and closers on buildings, retail, and commercial doors. If left untreated these problems will only get worse over time and eventually get to the point where they do not work at all.
