HOME SAFETY TIPS

It’s important to us all that our home be considered safe. Accidents can happen anytime and anywhere even inside your home. Listed below are several tips to follow to make sure you and your family are safe.

In the Kitchen

☑️ Keep flammable objects away from the stove. Do not let oven mitts, paper towels, etc. come into contact with the hot pots and pans or the burners.

☑️ Use cleaning products with caution. Ensure that you do not put the cleaning products within reach of your children. Keep them out of reach so they cannot accidently poison themselves.

☑️Never leave sharp objects and tools unattended in a place where little hands can reach them.

☑️ Ensure that all electrical cords are kept away from water and flammable objects like curtains and hand towels. The cords could overheat and catch fire.

☑️ Ensure that your appliances are getting the proper ventilation. You can do this by keeping them away from other objects and regularly vacuuming out the back of your appliances.

In the Bathroom

☑️ Just like in the kitchen, ensure that all cords are kept away from water. Water and electricity do not mix and can cause an electrical fire.

☑️ Use non-slip floor mats. The shower floor can be slippery when wet. By using a non-slip floor mat you are protecting yourself from slip and fall accidents.

☑️ Like in the kitchen, keep cleaning supplies locked up and out of reach of small children to prevent accidental poisoning. 

In the Bedroom

☑️ Don’t smoke in your bedroom. Flammable objects could catch fire from your cigarette and destroy your home and belongings.

☑️ Purchase a mattress that is flame resistant. If a fire breaks out in your bedroom, then you want to be protected and allow yourself the time you need to figure out your escape route and get out of your home.

☑️ You’re most vulnerable when you sleep. To ensure your safety in case someone was to come into your home, keep a phone and light by your bed.

In Your Yard

☑️ To ensure the safety of your pets and kids, surround your yard with a fence.

☑️ If you have a pool, make sure that it’s covered and fenced in. This will protect your kids from any risk of falling in and drowning. Having an alarm on the fence or the door leading out to your pool will alert you of any possible security breaches by your children so you know where they are and can prevent accidents.

In Your Garage

☑️ Keep any harmful substances you store in the garage out of the reach of your children and pets.

☑️ Keep the space clean and organized to prevent accidents.

Your home is a place to live and relax in, so you should feel safe there at all times. To ensure that you achieve the highest degree of safety within your home, follow these steps and do what you think is right for your home. All homes and families are different, so there will be different ways of keeping each other safe. There are companies that you can hire to come in and evaluate your home to make sure you don’t have any holes in your safety armor. 

Testimonials

We had our roof restoration and roof painting done by Prestige Roof Transformations and we decided to go with dulux products for two reasons: the product is very safe (for our tank water) so we can drink clean water straight off our roof and also for the insulation benefits as it reflect the heat which lowers our energy costs. We are more than happy with the work Prestige Roof Transformations did. Excellent job!

John and Linda Carr – Tinbeerwah Sunshine Coast

We are really pleased with the way the roof turned out because it has been nearly 30 years and our roof was bearing a lot of patches. We have a two storey home and the upstairs was really hot before Prestige Roof Transformation restored our roof. We are very happy about the advice of Prestige Roof Transformations especially about the cool roof system. The new cool roof system came up really well and now we are looking forward for cooler time and environment upstairs. Also, we have a steep roof and Prestige Roof Transformations was really careful about the safety of the men working on the roof which really impressed me. We are so happy about the job they have done!

Julie McKenzie Bli Bli – Sunshine Coast

Highly recommended. Brad assured me that they would start the job once receiving my acceptance of the proposed Commercial Painting works. I was very impressed as they finished the painting before the 3 weeks promised. Everyone on the job was courteous and considerate…… professionalism at its best. Nothing was a problem and I would not hesitate to recommend them to my family or friends.

Olga – Nicklin Way

I’d like to compliment your guys firstly for the quality of their workmanship and in addition the professional manner they have undertaken their work. They moved through the various areas unobtrusively and were very respectful of the privacy of the occupants. It was a pleasure dealing with them throughout the project. My congratulations to both you and your team for encouraging such professionalism.
