Baby-Proofing Your Home

Get Your Home Ready for Its Newest Member

At Mr. Handyman, we would like to extend our congratulations if you are expecting a new member of your family! We would also like to offer our help to get your home ready. Instead of spending your free time going through your home and making it safe for your child, allow our team to check that off your to-do list for you. You’d be quite surprised by just how many risks your home poses to new babies, especially as they begin to crawl and walk. Their desire to explore means that you need to be ready. Our handymen are experts at baby-proofing your home.

We’ve helped many new parents protect their new bundles of joy from getting into things they shouldn’t. Some things are obvious – locking cabinets, getting dangerous objects out of reach, blocking stairs – but there are quite a few things you may not be able to spot, especially if this is your first child and you haven’t gone through the experience before. Our baby-proofing handymen will walk through your home and point out all the risks that may be present.

To learn more about our baby-proofing services or to schedule a service, give us a call today at (888) 263-7304.

Tips on How You Can Baby Proof Your House

Wondering what you can do to keep your child safe from harm? Consider the following tips:

  • Get rid of sharp objects that are within the reach of the baby.
  • Remove any objects from the ground that could be dangerous.
  • Secure large, top-heavy furniture so they do not fall easily.
  • Cover all of the electrical outlets throughout your home.
  • Install safety gates at every doorway and near every stairwell.
  • Install windows that you can open from the top.
  • Ensure your smoke detectors are functioning properly.
  • Install childproof locks on cabinets, toilets, etc.

As you can see, there are quite a few things to do. Don’t underestimate the curiosity of a baby! They can get into far more than you would think. So it’s better to be safe than sorry. Mr. Handyman looks forward to helping make your parenting experience a tad bit easier.
