If your London home has been broken into and you need emergency glazing London based company, here are a few things to keep in mind.
Your natural instinct will probably be to panic when you find out that one of your windows has been broken. It’s important to stay calm and contact people who can help you. Call a friend or family member who lives nearby if you feel that is necessary, ring the police if it looks like a burglary and call a local London emergency glazier who can repair the broken windows or doors. Remain calm so that you can communicate effectively with people with regard to the break-in, and if you have other family members who are uneasy after the events, try to reassure them.
Don’t take any risks
Always make sure it’s safe before entering your house after a break-in. If you’ve contacted the police, it’s often best to wait until they’ve arrived and entered the house first. If an intruder is still inside the house, that could be dangerous, but you also don’t know how much damage has been done and if it’s safe to be walking around touching things. Another reason to stay out of the house is so that the police can see things as they are and photograph anything if necessary.
Change the locks
Once the emergency glazing services arrive, take every safety precaution you can think of. Make sure the windows are properly boarded up or repaired, and ensure that the locks are changed properly. You could even add extra locks to your doors and windows if that helps you to feel more safe in your home.
Call the insurance company
In order to cover the costs of all the damage and the costs of repairing the damaged parts of the property, you’ll need to make a claim if you have home and contents insurance. The emergency glazing services can be very expensive, especially since they’re emergency services and are available to repair windows and doors 24/7. Don’t worry straight away about calling your insurance company. Your priorities are to make sure that you and your family are safe in the house and to contact the police to report the incident. The call to the insurance company should be near the bottom of your priorities list and contacting an emergency glazing London based company should be near the top!
