3 KEY TIPS TO SAFE-PROOF YOUR HOME FOR YOUR CHILDREN!

3 KEY TIPS TO SAFE-PROOF YOUR HOME FOR YOUR CHILDREN!

Children. We absolutely love them and cherish them but they will take EVERY opportunity possible when it comes to destroying your home – and that can lead to some potentially serious situations. That coffee table you just HAD to buy suddenly becomes a danger hazard and those curtains you love? You just know they’re going to get dragged down at some point!

But there is good news – you can easily lower those odds by thoroughly child-proofing your home, and here we list three ways in which you can do so!

 

1)     Spotting trouble

Keep an eye out for anything pointy, slippery, or potentially dangerous. Any remote risks may need to be removed from the home (or at least covered up) until your child is a bit taller. For furniture with sharper edges, it would be wise to invest in some bumpers. They may not look great, but they’re worth it!

 

2)     Reduce hazards

Check around your home for loose cords or wires. Curtain pulls and electrical cords, in particular, can be a problem and should be tucked away or tied down securely. It’s imperative that all electrical outlets are covered up too to avoid any dangerous situations!

 

3)     Clean, clean and clean again

To maintain the safeness of your home, you would be wise to create and stick to a regular cleaning schedule! Check the floor often for anything that might have been dropped or items that may have slid under the furniture, because even the smallest of objects can represent a choking hazard to young children.
