Doors often sag downward just from use and gravity. This causes a misalignment of the bolt and the keeper (hole the deadbolt goes into) causing binding and dragging whenever you lock or unlock. You are correct that leaving this unfixed will quickly damage the lockset and be much more expensive to fix. A solution to the immediate problem is to lower the keeper to match where the deadbolt lines up. If you are semi-handy with tools you can probably do this yourself.
Extend the deadbolt with the door open. Push it against the door casing and mark above and below it with pencil. You should be able to "eyeball" it and see the problem by lining up the marks with the keeper. Unscrew the metal keeper from the jamb. Transfer the marks as close as possible from the casing to the jamb (surface where the keeper was). You will need to fill the old screw holes with wood because, when you remount the keeper, the new holes will be close to the old ones. You can use a sharpened popsicle stick, matchstick, toothpicks - whatever - to do this. Best to use glue. Tap them in fairly tight then break or cut the sticks level with the surface. Reposition your keeper vertically to match your pencil marks and screw it back to the jamb. Hold it in place in the new position and mark the screw holes then make a pilot hole for the screws with a nail. [Be careful not to change its position horizontally or the door won't close right] You may also have to remove some wood from the bottom of the hole behind the keeper where the deadbolt rests when locked. Easiest with a hammer and chisel but can be done with a good knife or drill and determination. I haven't looked but I wouldn't be surprised to find a Utube video of this process if you care to search. Good Luck!
