Child Safety Electrical Outlets | Austin Texas Baby Proofing

Baby proofing your home is more complete after addressing Child Safety Electrical Outlets | Austin Texas Baby Proofing.  Infant House childproofing experts recommend that all outlets below the counter top be secured to prevent electric shock or worse.  One of the most popular items to do this with is the outlet plug.  Unfortunately, these are easily pulled out by your child and pose an additional choking hazard.  These plugs actually add a concern to your life instead of eliminating one.

Implementing Child Safety Electrical Outlets | Austin Texas Baby Proofing

The best solution is to switch our your existing plate covers with a spring-loaded sliding electrical outlet plate.  These are very easy for adults to use, but are difficult for children to manipulate.

Surge protectors and outlet strips are a hazard as well, and the little orange/red light is a baby magnet.  Use a power strip cover to secure the hazard.

 Ramin R., MD said:

 … Infant House was amazing! …great job, on time. …very clean, organized, and helpful. Pricing was very fair!

Kimberly K. said:

Infant House was very knowledgeable when it comes to infant/child safety and “baby-proofing” ones home. They took the time to come out and walk through each room and provide their recommendations on products and services. Based on their recommendations, you can select the services/products that best suite your needs at the time. We have a large 5500 sq ft home and did quite a bit of baby-proofing including all new safe plug outlets in the home and lock/magnetic systems in the kitchen on all the cabinets and drawers. I would recommend Infant House of Dallas to anyone looking for these types of services!

Jennifer S. said:

Infant House did an amazing job. They came out and installed several gates and baby proofed many areas of the house. They even gave me suggestions on other things I should do to baby proof, like moving end tables that could be easily pulled over onto one of the girls. I received a very thorough quote and I could pick and choose which items I wanted installed by the professionals and which I could do myself.

Infant House saved me a lot of time and made sure my girls would be safe. I would recommend them to anyone looking to baby proof their homes.

Infant House  childproofing experts use appliance latches for various other appliances like the one above.  We recommend that wine/beverage appliances be secured from little explorers so that glass bottles are not pulled out, accidentally dropped and broken at which point can cause injury from cuts and punctures.  Also, the contents of the containers are often not appropriate for toddler consumption which could cause poisoning or worse.

Austin, San Antonio, Round Rock, & Georgetown Texas Baby Proofing Recipe

I learned long ago how to cook and I was told to use the best ingredients, follow the instructions and with experience, I would have excellent results.  With this combination, my results were very good.  When I took a short cut on the instructions or used an ingredient substitution, the results were often terrible.  At Infant House, our philosophy is to follow our proven Austin, San Antonio, Round Rock, & Georgetown Texas baby proofing recipe .  We start with making a list of ingredients (safety products) needed in the house as well as making sure they are the best quality.  Then we follow the manufacturers instructions  and with our 13+ years of baby safety product installation experience, we have excellent results.

Ingredients for Baby Proofing

Our clients at Infant House demand the very best and we give it to them.  Our selection of products is very narrow as we only use the best of the best and forget the rest.  Quite frankly, a lot of the child safety products on the market are not very good.  We work within our association, the IAFCS, to keep up to date on the latest cabinet locks, child safety gates and various other items for childproofing.  Over the years our ingredients list has changed for the better and our selection is always top of the line.

Baby Proofing Instructions

The manufactures include instructions with their products.  Sometimes they will have instructions printed out in six different languages and even with pictures, it can be difficult to understand what in the world you are supposed to do with the products.  We have seen baby safety products installed by other “professionals” that completely botched the job.  It is not their fault, they just don’t have the experience that we do at Infant House childproofing experts or follow a prove baby proofing recipe.

Poison Safety Tips for Your Home

pills
By Rob Carter & Gene Rice

Take a few minutes to consider these safety tips for keeping your family safe from poisons commonly found around the home.

  • KEEP CHEMICALS AND MEDICINES UP HIGH. Keep them out of sight and use locks. “Child guard” caps are frequently no match for determined children. Children often can reach more than parents think they can or might drag a chair to the counter if they saw you use one.
  • KEEP PURSES AND BRIEFCASES CONTAINING MEDICINES INACCESSIBLE to avoid children finding hazardous items.
  • DON’T LEAVE ANY MEDICINES OR CHEMICALS UNATTENDED. Poisonings can happen quickly when adults using the items become temporarily distracted.  As soon as you are finished with the item, even if it is medicine you need to take often, put it away for safety even though it is less convenient for you.
  • CALL MEDICINE WHAT IT IS WITH CHILDREN and never describe it as candy or something food-like.
  • DON’T TAKE MEDICINE YOURSELF WITH SMALL CHILDREN PRESENT since children learn by imitating what they see adults do.
  • STORE CHEMICALS AND MEDICINES IN THEIR ORIGINAL CONTAINERS to ensure all items are properly identified, and keep them away from food storage areas since many hazardous chemicals and medicines look like attractive foods to eat or drink. Poisonous products come in containers that are very similar to drink or food containers.bottles

    Is it a beverage or a dangerous cleaner?

  • STORE INCOMPATIBLE CHEMICALS SEPARATELY such as ammonia and bleach which, if they interact, can produce very toxic fumes.  Read labels carefully which will indicate what to watch out for.
  • KNOW YOUR PLANTS since a variety of common household plants are poisonous. Be careful of dangerous fertilizer chemicals which may reside in the potting material of the plants.
  • AVOID CAT LITTER IF YOU ARE PREGNANT since litter boxes are breeding grounds for germs and dangerous bacteria, particularly if you have an “outside” cat.  Likewise, it’s good to keep children away from the box, as well as dogs who, too often, view litter box contents as complimentary hors d’oeuvres.
  • READ DIRECTIONS VERY CAREFULLY WHEN GIVING MEDICINE TO CHILDREN as incorrect doses can pose serious risks.
  • SECURE YOUR COSMETICS WHEREVER THEY ARE (in purses, master bathroom, etc.).
  • KEEP eCIGARETTES AWAY FROM CHILDREN since they and liquid nicotine can be harmful if ingested.
  • KEEP ALL SMALL BATTERIES SECURE FROM CHILDREN since they can be a major source of injury if swallowed or even placed in an ear or nose.  Serious chemicals burns can occur.  Such batteries are commonly found in hearing aids, watches, toys, games, flashing jewelry, singing greeting cards, remote control devices, etc.
  • LAUNDRY DETERGENT PACKETS are dangerous. Highly concentrated single-load liquid laundry packets can cause serious harm and should be stored securely up high.
  • CHECK FOR RADON in your home since the radioactive material in radon gas is the leading cause of lung cancer in the United States for non-smokers.
  • ELIMINATE MOLD since many molds can cause illness and discomfort if not dealt with in a timely manner.  Eliminating water intrusion, leaks and excess humidity will help keep mold from growing.
  • CHECK YOUR HOME FOR LEAD-BASED PAINT IF BUILT BEFORE 1978. If lead is identified, have a professional help you. Learn more about lead hazards.
  • KEEP ALL COMBUSTION APPLIANCES WELL MAINTAINED as they can be a source of carbon monoxide. This would include: gas stoves, gas hot water heaters, gas furnaces, fireplaces and wood-burning stoves.
  • INSTALL CARBON MONOXIDE ALARMS to guard against this colorless, odorless gas produced by combustion appliances.
  • BE ALERT WHEN VISITING OTHER PEOPLE’S HOMES since they may have many poison hazards that are unsecured throughout the house.
  • DISCARD SYRUP OF IPECAC. It is no longer recommended for you to store Syrup of Ipecac at home. Call the Poison Center!

KEEP THE U.S. NATIONAL POISON CONTROL HOTLINE NUMBER HANDY. 1-800-222-1222. Store this number in your cell phone and post it in your kitchen.
