Is there a safe way to protect my child inside my home during preventative home maintenance?

Preventative Home Maintenance=Safety and Savings

Every homeowner who has a family believes in maintaining a safe and happy home. Preventive maintenance can keep children safe as they are growing up, but doesn't have to break your budget. Here are several preventative maintenance tips to keep your kids safe and healthy.

Tip #1: Cover Electrical Outlets

Plastic electrical plug covers are available at most retailers and grocery stores. They only cost about a $1 a pack and can keep children safe from sticking objects into the electrical outlets.

Tip #2: Clean Air Filters

Furnace air filters can get clogged with dust, pushing it into the rooms of your home and causing allergy or breathing problems in young children. Therefore, replace dirty air filters.

Tip #3: Check Baseboards and Floors For Loose Nails

Prevent your children from stepping on nails that raise from out of baseboards or wood floors. Go around your house and tap the nails back into place. Remove bent nails and replace with new ones.
