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.
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.
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.
