Steve Brown from Brisbane North Snake Catchers and Relocation said during the interview with the Yahoo News:

If she hadn’t have seen the snake she would have gone back to do some more laundry

Woman’s husband was out of the house, and she has no idea how long the snake could be inside. She left the doors open in order to have more fresh air in the house.

Of course, she understood that it is better not to repeat the same mistake, and it is a good idea to have doors closed.

Mr. Brown said:

It was a bit of a fright for her… She was petrified. She’s not opening [the doors] any more.

What not to do when you find a snake in your house?

This situation can happen with anyone, and it is important to know how to react and what to do or not to do in such cases. Here are some recommendations from snake catchers, originally published by ABC:

  • don’t judge snakes by color, as you can mistake deadly snakes for more harmless ones;
  • don’t try to kill any snake you find in the house;
  • immediately contact the licensed snake catcher.

Snake catchers claim that there are a lot of cases of mistaken identity when house owners try to find out the snake type by themselves. Never attempt to do the same, as it is always better to contact professional services.
