If you are moving into a new home with young children, it is very important to have a safety strategy in place. Moving into a larger house with a young family can always be a real challenge. When taking the needed precautions early on, you can be assured your children will be safe. This is especially true when you’re moving into a brand-new home from an apartment.
1. Establish a secure cabinet for cleaning supplies: When determining the storage area for your cleaning supplies, be certain to choose a location that cannot be accessed by a child. Keeping all of your detergent and household chemicals in one area that is difficult to reach, and protected with a child safety lock, will keep your children away from these harmful materials. Establishing this designated area early on will allow you to isolate harmful chemicals that are brought into your home immediately.
2. Cover your electrical outlets: Placing plastic socket covers in each of your unused electrical outlets is the best way to protect your child. If you have kids that are just starting to crawl and explore, there is a good chance they will try to put their fingers into an unprotected electrical socket. Socket covers are a simple precaution to take to help protect your child against injuries caused by electrical shock.
3. Check your smoke alarms often and install a carbon monoxide detector: When you are moving into a new home, it’s always best to inspect or replace the smoke alarms and install a carbon monoxide detector right away. Installing these devices will not only benefit your children, but will benefit your family as a whole. Be certain that your early warning devices are well maintained and in good working order at all times. Early detection of carbon monoxide build up, or fire is the best way to prevent injury to your family members in this type of emergency situation.
4. Set up barriers: Make sure that you are always locking your doors, blocking off stairways and securing windows. This can prevent falls by children who are curiously exploring their new environment. Installing baby gates will prevent your child from accessing areas that could be potentially dangerous, or leaving an area that is child safe. Placing child safety locks on windows and your doors will help to prevent accidents while making your home more secure at the same time.
