Safe Deposit Box Maintenance Guide
To maintain your deposit box properly, you need to take care of both internal and external parts. Whenever you place the box, make sure it’s dry and clean at all times. Damp places can trigger on the metal of the box. Also, dust can get into the buttons or the security touchpad so you need to keep it cleaned as well. The box can malfunction in case there is a coat of dust preventing the system from getting a proper reading.
Use a dry cloth to wipe over the outer part of the box often. It will prevent any dust from storing and keep the box shiny. Even though the inside is airtight and not even a dust particle can get inside, you should clear out the box and keep the door open for a while. Repeat this step once a month otherwise the inside may give out an unpleasant smell. After clearing the box, use a cloth to clean them as well but don’t use anything damp.
As for the security part, you need to set up a code that you will absolutely remember. If your box does have an override key of sorts, keep it in a secure place or if you can, keep the key on you at all times.
If you suspect anyone having a hold of your code, reset it as soon as possible. Make sure you keep an eye out for the battery life so you know the right time to replace it.
