We all know that it is important to keep a watchful eye on our homes, but there are some safety hazards we might not always think about. This blog post will help you identify five areas in your home where potential safety hazards may be lurking!
1) In the Kitchen:
It’s essential to always keep track of possible safety hazards in your home,we often place knives and other sharp objects near the edge of counters or too close to children and pets. Make sure these items are safely stored away from harm’s reach when not in use with a knife block or drawer insert.
2) Around Stairs:
Be aware of any small items that could cause slips or falls around staircases like throw rugs, shoes left outside of bedrooms, or shoes left by the front door when coming inside from outside.
3) In the Garage:
The items in your garage, especially if it’s attached to your home, could pose a safety hazard for you and your children. Be sure to check items like gasoline containers or paint cans before leaving them overnight because they may explode from heat buildup when left unattended! It is also important to clean up spilled fluids and prevent them from spreading by using large tarps. Always turn off power before working on wiring so that there are no electric shocks!
In the bathroom, there are many safety hazards that may not be apparent. For example, we often assume bathtubs or showers are safe to use without backing up while using them-but it’s important to check if they have any spots where water could leak onto other surfaces and cause slips or falls. Finally, always store household cleaning
5) Laundry Room:
