Arriving home late at night only to realise that you have lost your keys and been locked out of your house can be a nightmarish situation. Here are two things you should do if this ever happens to you.
Call a locksmith
Hiring a locksmith to open your door and provide you with a new key will, of course, cost money. Additionally, you may need to wait quite some time for the locksmith to arrive.
One of the locksmith emergencies you may experience as a homeowner is hearing that unmistakable crack as your key breaks right inside its lock. Keys breaking can prove to be frustrating for a couple of reasons. Firstly, a broken key without a spare means you would have to locate emergency locksmith services as soon as possible to give you access to your door. Secondly, if the broken part is lodged in the lock, your spare key will not do you any good as you will not be able to access the lock cylinder.
