Top Baby Proofing related questions

What does a baby proofer or child proofer do?

A baby or child proofer is an expert in safety. They’ll assess potential hazards in areas where children live and play before making recommendations and changes to improve safety.

Can a baby proofer help improve safety at my family daycare?

Of course! Meeting safety standards is an important factor in keeping and maintaining your accreditation. A qualified safety assessor can help you childproof your family day care to meet the required standards.

What skills, experience, and qualifications does a baby proofer need?

Child and baby proofing experts may come from a range of backgrounds, including carpentry and electrical trades, OH & S, and Early Childhood Education. They must have knowledge of safety laws and regulations, as well as practical skills so they can install your safety equipment.

When should I child baby proof my house?

When you expect to have children in your home (whether your own or someone else’s visiting), you’ll need at least some child proofing to ensure safety. But most parents find that child proofing becomes essential from when their child starts to become mobile (usually between 6-9 months).

How long will it take to fully baby proof my home?

Installing safety equipment may take anywhere from 30 minutes to a full day, depending on what needs to be done. Simple fixes like installing switch protectors can be a quick task, while installing window mechanisms and safety barriers will take longer.

How much does it cost to hire a baby proofer?

Baby proofing your house usually costs around $50-$100 when you hire  through Airtasker. But the cost will depend on the type of tasks, the size of your home, and how long it’s likely to take.

What does a baby proofing service include?

Baby proofing is more than just installing baby gates here and there (although that’s a big part of it). You can get help with securing TVs and cabinets to the walls, installing baby proof locks and devices, and even considering things like height and temperature restrictions to keep your child safe.

Choose from a range of different baby proofing services to suit your needs:

Full house safety assessment
Before you invest in fancy devices, why not undertake a professional baby-proofing assessment? Your baby proofing expert will visit you at home and conduct a thorough evaluation before providing you with a report on all potential hazards. This will cover critical areas, including flooring, trip hazards, railings, stairways, sleeping spaces, electrical plugs/outlets, doors, windows, cupboards, fridges, chemical storage, water, and pets.

Afterwards, they’ll develop a plan to install suitable safety items to minimise or eliminate risks to your child, while still allowing your home to function for the rest of your family.

Doors and windows
Baby proofing your doors and windows ensures that your house meets current safety requirements and keeps your children safe. Your baby proofer can help by installing baby gates, which may need additional mountings for wider stairs and doorways. They’ll measure and fit the baby gates and make sure they’re working correctly.

Part of the child proofing service is replacing dangerous blind and curtain cords, installing wall brackets, cord winders, and tension devices to reduce choking and strangulation hazards. Plus, your child proofer can install window bars, flyscreens, or window openers that limit openings to maximise window safety. They can also install cupboard door locks to secure chemicals and breakables, and add safety locks to bathrooms and toilets so children can’t accidentally lock themselves in.

Preventing burns
If you’ve got a curious baby, you’ll know that nothing attracts them more than heating devices. You can hire a childproofing expert to install safety items such as stove guards, heater guards, and thermostat controls for your hot water systems. They’ll assess your heat sources and measure current temperatures to decide on the best approach.

Next, your baby proofer will install either a commercial barrier product or custom design a setup to suit your house and needs.

Electrical safety
Houses are filled with potential electrical hazards for small children—lamp cords that can be pulled, TVs that climbers grab onto, and all sorts of cables running along the floor that are trip hazards and an invitation to chew. Your baby proofing service will include an assessment of any electrical risks in your home. 

Afterwards, you can choose from a range of ingenious solutions. These may include lockable circuit board covers, cord and cable covers, or even a custom-designed baby proof device charging station that will keep cords safely away from little mouths and fingers.
