Some Do's and Don'ts of Safe Maintenance and Upkeep

Safes are designed to help enhance the security of our businesses and homes. So, buying and installing a safe will help protect your valuables from thieves. However, the durability of your safe depends largely on your safe maintenance routine.

For instance, adequate lubrication of the safe locks will help it last longer thereby saving you from encountering lock jamming. So what are the dos and don’ts of safe maintenance and upkeep? Here are some suggestions:

Dos: Conduct Regular Safe Maintenance Routines

Like every mechanical device, safes require basic home or office maintenance routines to function optimally. Although today’s safes do not need rigorous maintenance routines, neglecting basic protocols will affect your safe’s year to year performance.

Basic maintenance routines such as changing lock batteries, cleaning, and lubricating lock bolts and hinges, will affect the overall performance of your safe.

Don’ts: Avoid DIY

A well-used safe may require an annual maintenance schedule while a less used safe may require one after a few years. Therefore, using a DIY approach and material for advanced maintenance routines could damage your safe’s locking mechanism.

For instance, a dirty surrounding would expose your safe’s lock mechanism to dust and debris. Hence, preventing your safe’s door and locking mechanism from functioning properly. In a dirty surrounding, dust and debris would easily find their way into your safe’s bolt, lock, dial, and door hinges.

Don’ts: Avoid Overlooking Your Safe’s Warning Signals

Pay attention to your safe. Study how your safe works over time. If you notice any sign of trouble (no matter how small), contact a locksmith immediately. Small warning signs are easy to fix and neglecting them could later cause a whole lot of issues with your safe.

Most complex safe’s dysfunctions start small and neglecting the warning signals often leads to more catastrophic issues.
