Here’s the situation: You go home to rest after an exhausting day at work or running errands, you have to take the garbage out or go quickly to the store, and you find out that you forgot your keys inside the door, it’s locked, there is no possibility to open it again and you find yourself in a very uncomfortable situation that you need to solve as soon as possible because it’s already night. It’s locked, there’s no chance of unlocking it again and you find yourself in a very uncomfortable situation that you need to solve as soon as possible because it’s already dark. What can you do now?
We know you’re frustrated and probably don’t want to read solutions, just kick the door in with a huge kick. But there are some options outside of even calling a professional to provide you with a door unlocking service (even though it’s the best option). Want more information on this? Read on and I’ll explain.
Call your neighbor to whom you have left a copy of your keys.
One of the reasons why you should make friends with your neighbors or have a short distance contact with a copy of your keys is this. If you have not left the key attached to the door, your best option is always to call that person who once took care of your plants or who has offered you a similar service and who has a copy of your keys. This person probably still has it and can save you if you give them a little time and wait at a neighbor’s house.
Find a local locksmith
If the above options are not very viable, you live in a house and you are not a very trusting person or you haven’t thought about the key removal service before, then the best thing you can do is find a service that does keyless door opening. This person will allow you to open your door without damaging it or doing any damage to it as long as the key is not stuck in the door on the other side.
Call the manager
If you live in an apartment, there is a chance that you can call the apartment manager and have him open your apartment with a master key that is only kept for high-risk occasions or problems similar to this one. So it’s probably time to look for him at the front desk and ask for some help.
Find another way in
Check around your home, you may have left the back open or have a window that you can easily access without breaking it. Rarely do we opt for these options that may be viable and prevent damage to your door. You can even, if you have the expertise, ask a neighbor to help you dismantle a frame. The only problem is what to do next, but we imagine you’ll figure it out once you get inside your home, right?
So much for our article today. Sometimes, the best solution we have is to have somebody who is trained to open our door in an emergency. See you next time! We wish you the best of luck.
