House Ceaning Services – Master Cleaning Now decided to figure out how to make the house comfortable and safe for a family with a child.
As soon as a child is born, his parents begin to look at the world around with very different eyes: even ordinary household items can be dangerous for a baby.
EQUIPMENT SAFE SPACE FOR A CHILD IS NOT DIFFICULT, the main thing is to take a responsible approach to solving this problem, and not to limit ourselves to installing elementary plugs on the sockets. This is certainly an important point, but far from the only one.
A lot of boxes – a real bait for any kid. In an effort to know this world, the child will try to look into all corners of the kitchen. The task of the parents is to make these studies safe. Boxes in which sharp objects lie or kitchen household chemicals are stored need to be equipped with special locking mechanisms with which the child cannot cope. Either these items should be moved to the boxes above. Bottom drawers that do not pose dangers and in which, for example, pots are stored, can not be locked. But it is better to check whether they open smoothly, and put the closers so that the child cannot pinch his fingers.
If you are doing repairs while waiting for your baby, think about the location of the plate. When punching the slab into the countertop, ask to move it as far as possible from the edge. And get used to putting pans on the stove so that the handle is turned to the wall, not to the edge. Otherwise, the baby may come up, grab the handle and turn the entire contents on itself.
If the oven is low and the child can reach it, make sure that the knobs and knobs are always locked.
All that can break, valuable, dangerous needs to be raised to a height inaccessible to the child. It is better to equip accessible lower cabinets and drawers too, just in case, with blockers, or fill them with children’s books and toys – the child will study them for a long time. Make sure that the baby can not drop anything heavy. Bookcase and TV is better to fix on the wall. Sharp corners close special soft plugs.
Windows and doors
Put the locking mechanisms on the windows – this is especially important if the windows are low. You can make the window open at an angle and not completely – enough to ventilate. Limit the number of mosquito nets and do not open windows, equipped with them, wide open.
In a child, they form a ghostly feeling of security: he can rely on this grid, and in fact it is almost not fixed and cannot serve as a support. Install the chain on the balcony door at 1.7 meters, so that the child could not independently go to the balcony. If you choose the pattern of forging on the balcony, pay attention to the fact that the baby could not climb on it like on a ladder. Equip the interior doors with shock-stoppers that prevent the doors from closing to the end, so that the child cannot pinch his fingers.
The child should not be alone in the bathroom: even if it seems to you that you have foreseen everything, all possible dangers are gathered here. All household chemicals and first aid kit should be located as high as possible and, if possible, close with a key. While the child is small and it is impossible for him to explain what can be touched and what is not, it is better to remove soap, shampoos, toothpaste in a separate box.
Starting repair in the nursery, pay attention to what materials you use. Choose the most environmentally friendly. Do not place in the children’s mirror, the TV in this room is also superfluous. There should be no shelves, cabinets or pictures above the baby’s bed. If there is already a shelf, then only light toys are stored on it, and not books. By the way, there should be a minimum amount of books in the nursery – so that they do not collect dust, which is a strong allergen.
Place a light switch or a small scon directly at the crib so that the baby is not afraid of the monsters under the bed and can easily turn on the light on their own.
– TRY NOT TO HURRY WITH THE MOVE to the apartment where the repair is just over. Fine dust after repair is in the air for several months, and the corresponding strong odors do not disappear for a very long time.
– IN THE HOUSE, WHERE THERE ARE LADDERS, special partition grilles that will prevent the child from falling down the stairs will be useful. The distance between the stair balusters should not be more than 15 centimeters.
– DELETE FLOWERS INTO ACCESSIBLE FOR THE CHILD’S PLACE so that he cannot drop heavy pots or taste their contents. If the balcony is glazed, you can temporarily equip a winter garden there.
