Whether you’re a homeowner or a business owner, you need to know your property is secure when you keep it in your safe. Your safe protects your belongings in the event of a burglary or fire. That’s why it’s important to know when it’s the right time to change the combination on your safe.


At Bloomington Security Solutions, we bring professional expertise to your business and understand everything you need to know about keeping your property secure with a safe. Read our guide below to help you decide if it’s a good time to change the combination on your safe.


1.      Have you recently inherited or purchased a safe?

If you’re lucky enough to inherit a great safe, the first thing you should do is change the combination. You don’t have any way of knowing who might have had access to the safe before it came into your hands, and it’s a risk you can’t take when it comes to protecting your valuables.


The same is true if you’ve purchased a safe secondhand. Before you put anything in your safe, make sure the combination is one that only you and those who need access are aware of.


2.      Have you had a change in who should access the safe?

As a business owner, you may find that your staff who have access to the safe change over time. When you have any employees leave who have had access to your safe, the first thing you should do is change the combination of your safe. If you’re a homeowner with a private safe, you should be just as careful if you’ve had a change in your life that means someone with access is no longer living with you. 


3.      Has your safe combination been compromised?

As the owner of a safe, your valuables are only as secure as the combination to your safe. If for any reason you suspect that someone has shared information or had access to your safe combination that should not have, assume it is no longer secure. Changing the code to your safe can be done simply and quickly with just a phone call, so there’s no reason to put it off.


4.      Have you forgotten your combination?

If you’ve forgotten the combination to your safe, don’t wait for the information to come back to you before changing the combination. You never know when you may unexpectedly need access to the precious items inside your safe, which makes putting off changing your combination risky. Our team of security professionals can get your combination changed quickly so you can worry about other things.
