Checking the Mezuzah: As already indicated mezuzah must be written in a very specific way. As time passes, it sometimes happens that the mezuzah will become damaged. Even a tiny crack in a letter can invalidate the mezuzah. Therefore, the proper practice is to have one's mezuzah checked twice every seven years. This checking should be done by a qualified sofer (scribe).
