The world we live in can be a scary place. You turn on the news today and it always seems like something bad has happened in some neighborhood. This can make us wary of who enters our home. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Your home is your personal safe space, and you should be aware of who you are letting into it. So here are some tips to help keep your home safe and secure, and to help you feel secure with who you are letting into it.
First, it’s important to understand that most people you encounter are going to be okay. Never determine this by the age, gender or general look of a person. Dangerous callers could be in the form of men, women, or even children. So never let anyone into your home if you are unsure or uncomfortable with them.
What you’re now thinking is, “How will I ever feel comfortable with service professionals in my house, then?” There are certainly measures you can take to confirm identity and integrity of these people before you let them inside. The first step is hiring an accredited company. You can even take an extra step and look at their reviews online, from consumers like yourself.
When setting up the appointment get plenty of information. It is their job to make sure you are happy and feel comfortable right off the bat. The day of your service, you can request from them the name of your service technician. This way, you can know ahead of time the name of the person coming to your door. If you are still unsure of their identity, ask for a business card so you can confirm they are indeed with the company you scheduled to come over. This should not be a problem for the technician, as they should want to make you feel comfortable with their presence in your home.
If you are still not sure about being alone with a stranger, it is always okay to ask a friend or family member to stay with you while they are present. But it is important for you to feel secure, and any company you hire should understand that as well.
