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!
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!
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.
There you have it guys – our top tips for maintaining a
child-friendly home through the summer and beyond! Of course, our expert team
