Our recommendations which will help to childproof your home:
Use windows stop, window guards of safety netting to keep kids from falling out the windows. Ensure that older children or adult will be able to remove the safety devices as exits in case of emergency.
Eliminate window blind cords with loops to prevent possible strangulation and purchase safety tassels to take the place of cord loops.
Install outlet plugs and covers, this is the best way to prevent electrocution. Keep in mind that small children poke on anything that draws their interest.
Keep little children away from dangerous rooms such as the garage, office, kitchens, and bathrooms by using door locks and knob covers. Put a hook-and-eye latch or slide lock on doors out of their reach.
Make sure to unplug all unused electrical appliances, most particularly the toaster. Keep electrical cords coiled and out of children’s reach at all times. Install smoke detectors in the bedroom floors in the house and the kitchen.
Install safety gates on top of the stairs, outlets, corners to prevent crawling infants from falling off the stairs and also install one in the kitchen to keep them out of the area when you are not around.
Make sure to have safety locks or 3m latches on airtight containers and cupboards including chests, dressers, coolers and even the refrigerator where there is a possibility of your child becoming trapped inside and suffocate. Also, use protectors on sharp edges of your furniture.
In the bathroom, make sure to set the water heater to 120 degrees Fahrenheit to avoid scalding and install anti-scalding equipment on shower heads, taps and faucets.
Store soaps, alcohol, detergents and other hazardous items out of children’s reach.
