It is a very common situation that you go outside your home for one moment and the door suddenly shuts behind you. Now you find yourself in an emergency situation standing outside your house without keys. Or you forget to take keys with you while leaving your house. Here are few things to do if you find yourself in such situation
Before getting stressed about the situation, check all your pockets to make sure that you are really out of keys. It’s a common thing that whenever we are in any emergency situation our minds become filled with anxiety and we forget everything. Getting stressed will make the situation worse and will not help you in any way. Instead of panicking, keep yourself calm. Think off all the possible ways in which the situation can be resolved.
Do you have good relations with your neighbors? If yes, then ask them for help. Ask them to let you weight inside their home. Recall if you have hidden any spare key somewhere near your house. Try to arrange a duplicate key. If you are living with any roommate or family members, call them because they might have a spare key with them.
If you rent your place, then contact your landlord. As a rule, they will have a duplicate of your home key just in case they need to get into the house for maintenance or an emergency.
Look for another way to get in. Try to find any unlocked window as it is the perfect way to get access to your home. Be careful while entering through a window because it might cause you any kind of injury. We all know it’s a frustrating situation but you have to keep your senses together. Don’t try to do anything silly and handle the matter carefully. Have a deep breath and be patient.
Do not damage your property by smashing things in order to get access to your house. It will complicate the whole situation as you might hurt yourself by doing all this. All this destruction could get expensive as you need to repair it later. Neighbors will think that you are a thief and might call police which can be a disaster for you.
If all the possible ways to have access to your house fall short, it’s the time to call a locksmith for rescue. They are professional and have a lot of ways to provide lockout services in the time of emergency. They are available 24/7 for your help. They are very trained and will open the door quickly for you without damaging your property.
