What to do when you lose your house or car keysBotak Locksmith
You’ve got a lot to do today, and very little time to do it. As you reach for your keys, you realize they are not where you assumed you had left them. A feeling of hysteria starts to set in. What do you do? Without them you can’t drive anywhere, and at this rate you’re going to throw off your entire schedule.
Fortunately, you aren’t alone. Forgetting the whereabouts of keys is quite a frequent offense in many homes. When time is of the essence, it becomes all the more important to find them as quickly as possible. Before declaring them lost and the situation hopeless, take deep breaths and attempt to calm down. Clear your mind and try to recall where you last saw your keys. If you’re sure that they absolutely must be somewhere in the house, begin to retrace steps. Very often when people come home, they haphazardly place their keys wherever they may drop in the flurry to remove coats, mittens and other accessories. Be sure to inspect the areas around doorways, not forgetting to include any and all tables and chairs.
Keys can often end up in places that defy logic, so this should also not be ruled out. Try looking around the inside of your kitchen cupboards, in bathroom medicine cabinets, even inside or on the rims of the toilet, sink or bathtub. Between and under couch cushions, around the TV or other entertainment centers, and under the furniture are also prime spots to inspect. Make sure to check each area as thoroughly as you can manage before moving on.
When all else fails and your keys simply are not anywhere to be found, there is no need to lose sleep at night
