Recent discussions about locks made a light bulb pop to life over my head!
Locks are mechanical and metal. Two reasons to keep them well lubricated.
When we recycle cylinders we lube each one with Houdini spray from Landlordlocks.com. We can instantly feel the difference once the used cylinder is sprayed.
(Use the thin tube and spray into the keyway, insert key and work it around for a moment.)
Because some residents stay for YEARS I realized we are not changing their locks so those cylinders are not getting lubed.
Now on the list is to shoot some Houdini spray into front and rear locks on the Preventive Maintenance Visit. Twist it around with the masterkey.
Makes them smell citrusy fresh too!
Happy Landlording all Housing Providers!
