As a homeowner, safety becomes a significant issue when caring for small children, especially when they’re just learning to move around on their own. At this stage, making sure the little ones don’t hurt themselves becomes a crucial part of any renovation process.
Some effective childproofing tactics you can instigate during a remodel include:
Installing Temporary Barriers
You can cordon off dangerous sections by installing temporary barriers around such areas. These barricades work in the same way as baby gates or stair barriers as they limit access to certain places that represent a danger to your kids. They’re easily placed and removed and are particularly effective with toddlers.
Allocating Safe Spaces
You can also allocate specific areas where your children are allowed to play, preferably far from the remodeling contractors and their work. If you’re renovating your kitchen, for instance, you can declare the back of the house a no-go zone and make it clear that the kids can only play in the living room.
Invest in Childproof Locks
Keeping tools and materials in a childproof location ensures no child gets their hands on them. You can childproof the lock to a particular cupboard where the contractors can keep anything they need.
