In our household accidents may occur and therefore it is good to prevent them. It is necessary that we look after our family (especially the elderly and children). With that goal will give you some tips to know what precautions we should take in order to live in a safe home.
First floors should have a non-slip surface. If you want to use these large carpets should be fastened to the floor. In addition, make sure you have adequate lighting in all rooms. Watchmen placed to achieve a clear vision and no need to turn the main lights in the middle of the night.
If you live with people too old must include rails for the toilet and bathtub. Then they can stand and sit without any problems. Furthermore, in the bathtub placed a rubber mat (and warn slips).
Check all electrical appliances at home and only use cables and wires with insulating cover. We’ve already warned about the special attention that we have with electricity in the home areas in which water circulates, for example, in the bathroom. The most important thing is to remember that you must keep electrical appliances distant sinks and bathtubs.
Phones available in areas within easy reach and next to them saves a list of emergency numbers. A practical option for any problem is to have a cordless phone that can transports around the house.
In addition, immediately repair any loose tile home. Install railings at the entrance that support and balance (also requires a good lighting). So you can move with confidence when you get home in the middle of the night.
