How to Fix a Door at 3 in the Morning
A broken door is one of the most inconvenient things that you can experience. It interrupts your sleep, and makes it difficult to get around your home without having to climb over or crawl under a piece of wood. You might think you should just call a repairman in the morning, but there are actually some steps that you can take right now if this happens at night.
First, make sure the door is closed and locked. This will help keep out unwanted guests. The, call a 24 hr locksmith. They will help you get a new lock on your door quickly and easily.
If you have a phone that has a flashlight on it, use that to inspect your front door or back door for any signs of forced entry. There may be scrapes from someone using tools to pry open the lock or jiggle the latch loose on an external entrance. If there are scratches then you should call the police immediately because this could indicate more than just entering into your home which can lead to burglary and physical assault in some cases. You might also want to grab something like pepper spray if possible so that you feel safe while inspecting these things too close up or by yourself at night when it’s dark outside as well as being on your own.
If you don’t have a phone that has a flashlight, then use candles or lanterns so that you can inspect the door for forced entry and damage without it being difficult to see anything. Just be careful not to leave any open flames near something flammable as an accident could occur while inspecting if left unattended even briefly. It’s better just to call the police in this situation too because of those risks involved with having open fire around things like wood doors or furniture which can catch quickly when exposed to flame from candle light or another source of heat due to their more organic materials used which are highly combustible by nature.
