Lubricate the Door Lock:
One of the most overlooked parts on your door is the euro key cylinder which never gets cleaned or lubricated, never lubricate a cylinder with a wet lubricant such as oil or WD40 it will always make the situation worse not better, this is because a euro cylinder has inside it a number of pins, springs and retaining clips.
If you put a wet lubricant into it you will cause these to stick together and any dirt and grit from outside will get stuck in these moving parts and will cause it to jam and break down.
Instead you should always use a dry lubricant such as a graphite powder. Graphite powder is super smooth and allows parts to slide without any friction & does not adhere to foreign particles such as dirt and grit. This quick and easy fix may save you a fortune should your cylinder fail meaning you need the services of a locksmith call out.
