Home Safety Tips

Keep your stairways clear and free of clutter. You don’t want to be going up or down them and trip over something – such as a pair of shoes – that was left on a step. You should also turn on a light in the stairway so that you can see if something has been left by accident.

Putting skid-proof backing on all of your rugs and runners will help keep them from sliding out from under you as you walk. If your rug does not come with a skid proof back, you can buy rubber mats, or double sided tape that will work.

Make sure that there is a guard or screen around your gas fireplace, radiator or wood burning stove. This will help to keep curious children and pets from getting too close to something that will burn them.

Keep all of the instruction manuals for all of your appliances. This way if something starts to go wrong with it you will know what to do before they cause damage – such as sparking a fire.

Keep smoke detectors installed on each level of your home. Also make sure that the batteries are checked and or changed every six months. In addition to the smoke detector you should also have a carbon monoxide detector on each level of your home.

If you have blinds on your windows you should make sure that the cords and pulls are kept where curious children and pets cannot get to them.

Check the locks on your doors and windows to make sure that they are working properly.

Having a sturdy stool is handy for reaching items that are in top shelves. You don’t want to use a stool or chair that cannot support your weight while standing on it.

Beside your phone you should store a list of all the emergency numbers you may need. For example police and fire (9-1-1), doctor, and poison control are all good numbers to have on the list.

If you use a space heater during the winter – it should be kept away from curtains and other flammable materials. This will help to prevent these items from catching fire.

If you have small children, BABY-PROOF your home THOROUGHLY. Put child-proof locks on all cabinets within the child's reach and use gates to block off potentially dangerous areas (such as the kitchen or staircase). Make sure all sharp items and cleansers are also out of the child's reach.

Lightbulb Home Safety Tips

Always make sure the cleaning product you're reaching for is the one you really want! Many products, particularly aerosol cans, can't be distinguished by "feel." For example, mistaking furniture polish for insect killer could make the floor very slippery and lead to falls.

Cleaners with ammonia or ammonia-based ingredients should NEVER be mixed with chlorine bleach or vinegar to avoid irritating fumes.
