Kitchen safety

Baby Safe Homes performs a complete walk-through of your home and provides a detailed, itemized estimate of what we think would best baby proof your home. It is then entirely up to you to decide how much or how little work you would like to have done.

Let’s take as an example kitchen safety tips and recommendations. To steer clear of tipping hazards, anchor floor standing ovens to the floor. To check your oven, grab the back of the oven and pull forward or open the oven door and push down. The oven should not tip forward.

Keep dishwasher locked or install an appliance latch. If latching is not possible, point sharp utensils downward. Do not add dish washing detergent until you plan to run the washer, and when not using it, store it out of reach.

Cabinets and drawers below counter level need to be secured with high quality latches specific to your cabinetry. Although latches are installed try as much as possible to store all chemicals and poisons (e.g Cleaning products) out of reach of children. Also, keep knives and sharp objects toward the back of drawers.

Other possible child proofing solutions to secure a kitchen would be for example, to install self close electrical outlets, outlet plugs, power strip covers, or carbon monoxide and smoke detectors.
