- Take good care of the lock on your door
The lock on your door is extremely important to ensure the safety and security of your house and so it is very important that it is always working properly and doing its job.

This, of course is a huge annoyance, and no one wants to come home to a situation where the lock isn’t functioning and they have to stand outside the house trying to correct the problem. Hence, to avoid any such kind of issue, it is important to use a lubricant on the lock so that it works properly even after a bit of time has passed.
