Never Give a Babysitter a Key to Your Home

Written by BigRed Locksmiths on . Posted in Blog

Big-Red-Locksmiths-locksmith-services-in-OmahaAt Big Red Locksmiths, we often asked, “How should I give the babysitter access to our home? Is it okay to give out a house key so they can come and go?” As if there isn’t enough to be worried about as a parent of small children.

In our experience, giving out keys to your Omaha home, even to a trusted household employee, is one of the biggest security mistakes you can make. In fact, our experienced Omaha Locksmith security technicians instruct that a key to your home should never be given to someone hired to perform domestic service. In response, we typically hear the objection, “If I can’t trust my babysitter with my house key, then I shouldn’t trust her with my kids!”
