We all experience situations where we find ourselves locked outside our house or office, cursing our luck and possibly wondering what we’re doing with our lives. It’s aggravating and we don’t know what to do. Should we wait or should we call a professional? How long would it take for the professionals to arrive? Should we do it ourselves? These are just some of the questions racing through our heads.
If that ever happens to you, don’t worry. We, at Key4Freedom, are here to help. The first step to solve any problem is to relax, calm yourself, and look for the best possible ways to get out of it. The second step is to do something. But do what? Let us examine some of the common problems people experience and, more importantly, what to do if you find yourself on the wrong side of a locked door.
When might you need a locksmith?
In our years of experience in professional locksmith services, here are some of the common problems we’ve seen people encounter:
This is the number one problem for which people contact us. A lockout occurs when people least expect it. And it is the situation where people resort to the most desperate means to unlock the doors. This often results in damage to property which is even more frustrating and time-consuming than being locked out of the house.
Another frequent problem is lost keys. What happens here is people try to break in through windows or use credit cards to unlock the doors. Both of these so-called “solutions” result in damage to either your credit card or the window. And there’s still no guarantee that you’ll be able to finally open the door. So, if you lose your keys, contact professional locksmiths.
There are two primary situations where you would need to replace your existing lock. First, if your lock is faulty, jammed, or damaged beyond repair, it’s better to get it checked and repaired. Another reason for a lock change is moving to a new house. If you have relocated to a new area and are not satisfied with the existing locks or your insurance company has instructed you to change your locks, then go for it. There’s no point in taking a risk.
Not all damaged locks need a replacement. Sometimes, it’s better and more affordable to just get it fixed.
What to do in case of a lockout or a lock problem

Not only are we better prepared to handle these situations in a more organized manner, you can rely on us for affordable rates and a timely service. Just give us a call and our local locksmiths will be there in just 30 minutes!
Why call up a professional?
This is what a lot of people think. Why spend money on a professional service when I can do it on my own? The answer is simple. The security of your house or commercial establishment is significantly more important than the money you spend on a locksmith service. Doing it yourself or contacting an amateur carries a risk of damage to the property. And you don’t want that now, do you?
