Best Recommendations To Baby Proof Your Home

Kids always find the way to do make anything dangerous. Baby proofing your home is the best way to avoid dangerous injuries. Now it is a challenging question that what to childproof in your home or what not to, but the main goal is to keep your family safe.

Stair is the place in a house where most of the falls occurs. According to “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention” (CDC), in the United States almost 8,000 are treated in emergency room everyday with fall-related injuries and up to 2.9 million injuries over a year. Luckily, it is easy and simple to baby proof the stairs.

There are a lot of options for railings, but it is very difficult to select the products that actually match the style of your home without the supervision of experts. It is important to choose railing properly to child proof the balconies or stairs of your home to avoid baby falls.

In vertical ladder railing, if the gap is wider than 4 inches, then a baby can wedge in the railings and suffocates. If railing has horizontal bars kids use them to climb up and fall due to slip. To prevent these type of hazards you should cover the railing with various options like a clear plastic sheet, plastic garden fence, or with the sheet of Plexiglas.

Among all these, Plexiglas is the best solution for making stairs or balconies railing safe. It doesn’t affect the looks of the balcony as it is transparent and also gives the greater protection than others. Measure both the height and length of the railing and buy the sheets of Plexiglas that fits into it. It is easy to fit smaller sized Plexiglas in the railing.

Drill a series of holes of 1/4 inches around the edges before removing the plastic cover of Plexiglas. It will prevent the hole from cracking. Hold the Plexiglas in place on the balcony railing, and secure it in place using cable ties through all the holes with railing. Make sure there is no gap more than 2 inches all around. You can use 2 sheets of Plexiglas to make up the length of the balcony.

Make sure not to keep any items nearby banisters that can be used by kids to climb up and over the rails. You may get the help of the professionals for childproofing your home or purchasing safety devices.

Many people put-off baby proofing because they do not have the time- there is absolutely no excuse for that. I have taken care of patients who have their babies fall down stairs, choke on door stoppers, and pull down furniture onto themselves. This can be prevented. And the service is very affordable- the only additional cost versus doing it yopurself is the labor cost.Thank you to Baby Safe Homes for providing an excellent service to me and my patients.

Hi all. I just wanted to let you know that we recently used Baby Safe Homes to childproof our house. More than a few friends referred us to this company and I can’t speak highly enough it. They came to our house for a consultation, made recommendations, and did immediate installation. He was very honest and didn’t pressure us to buy or install anything we didn’t feel we needed to. If you have an infant ready to crawl (as we do) I’d highly recommend Baby Safe Homes.

Thank you very much for making my house a safer place for my twin girls. You did a wonderful job! Everything works great, and I’m starting to appreciate all the devices even more as the girls get better at getting into things. I will certainly recommend Baby Safe Homes to all of my friends with kids and my patients.

Baby Safe Homes was an absolute pleasure to work with. I felt so overwhelmed by the process of babyproofing I procrastinated until my 8 month old was on the go. Within a few short days of my initial call Baby Safe Homes came out, gave me the guidance I needed, and proofed my entire house with top of the line products all within a 2 1/2 hour period. I can actually get more done now without constantly stopping to chase my son!

Thank you for helping us babyproof our new home. I loved that you gave us all the options and didn’t push anything on us and allowed us to pick what we felt was necessary. Also, I couldn’t believe how quick everything was finished. Within a few days of speaking with you, you came out and installed everything in just 2 hours! Our stair gates look and work great! I wish I had heard of you before and I will definitely recommend you to all of my family and friends. Thanks again.
