Getting locked out of your home can be anything from an annoyance (if you know someone with an extra key nearby) to a calamity (if you truly have no other way to get in.) Here’s what you should do if you find yourself locked out of your home.
Phone a friend
It’s not a bad idea to leave a spare key with a trusted friend or family member. If that’s not an option for you, call the landlord of your apartment or home. They’ve dealt with it before.
Did You leave a window open?
Two things: If you left a window open, then you’re in luck. But, if you left a window open, you also need to realize that other people can get in as well. Make sure that you lock your windows and doors when you leave. It might mean that you’ll be locked out, but so will those who you don’t want in.
If you don’t have someone with a spare key, your landlord isn’t available, and there is no other way into your home or apartment, the first thing you need to do is stay calm. This is something that happens to people every day and there are solutions!
