Need An Emergency Locksmith? Perth Residents Locked Out of Their Homes
Posted on 20th, Aug 2018
There is a terrible sinking feeling that you experience when you realise that you’re locked out of your home. This is even more exasperating if you’re in a hurry or if this happens outside business hours. If you’re good at planning or just lucky, there may be a spare key available somewhere, but the rest of us will need a 24-hour locksmith. Let’s take a closer look at some of the details that you need to consider before making the call.
You’re Not a Cat Burglar:
This is an assumption, as a burglar probably doesn’t need to read this article and they can break into their own houses easily. Back to being serious, many homeowners think that they can solve their problem themselves, by breaking into their homes. This is understandable, especially if you’re trapped outside, out of hours, and you’re in a rush. However, breaking into your home can cause a lot of problems, and it can even make the situation worse.
Attempting to climb through upper story windows, without the correct ladders or safety equipment is dangerous. Breaking glass or attempting to kick in doors, can cause serious injuries and unnecessary damage. Picking locks, using credit cards and hair clips may be possible in Hollywood movies, but in reality, you’re more likely to break your locks. Fixing, what is probably a minor lock issue, can quickly become very expensive if you don’t know what you’re doing and not using the correct tools.
Calling the Police:
This may seem like a good idea, but in reality, you’re just wasting time. The Police will want to make sure that you’re safe and that your property is secure, but they are unlikely to effect an entry. Typically, police officers only force their way into a property if a crime is being committed or if there is someone at risk. Although a burly cop could break into your home, they won’t have the right equipment, and they would cause damage. A police officer will recommend that you call out a 24-hour locksmith and they might call one for you if you’ve locked your phone indoors.
Getting Professional Help:
A skilled local locksmith will be able to gain access to the property easily. There won’t be any additional damage issues to deal with, and if there are, they will be insured. You will need to provide some proof that you’re the resident, if your identification is locked in the property, they will need to see it once they have made an entry.
