Kid’s safety is always on the mind of any parent, especially during a major home renovation. And that’s no surprise since remodeling can involve lots of construction dangers and many people moving about. A space that is being worked on can have sharp, uneven surfaces that aren’t safe for kids. Children are also naturally curious, and that can lead them to get into places that they shouldn’t be in during a remodel. For these reasons, it’s important to take precautions that keep your kids out of harm’s way during your next home renovation.
A major job, such as a kitchen remodel or bathroom renovation shouldn’t be a job with a high risk of injury. Rather, it should be a fun new project that allows you to look forward to refreshing your home’s look and having a vibrant new living space for your family. By following a few basic kid’s safety tips you can greatly reduce the risk to children, pets, and parents alike.
Keep Air Clean
This safety tip is less about controlling your kids and more about thinking ahead. Remodeling projects tend to kick up a lot of dust, and that can be bad news if you have a child with allergies. Before your project starts, it’s best to take measures to mitigate the spread of dust and therefore reduce its risks for children. When it comes to your air conditioning system, that means sealing off all HVAC ducts so that dust cannot spread through them.
