Keep Your Children Safe During Home Renovations with These Safety Tips

If you’re living in your home as it’s being renovated, safety is a important factor to consider. The safety of your household becomes even more important if you’re living through renovations with young children in the house. Kids are curious, and that curiosity can lead them to explore potential dangerous and exposed areas of your home while it’s being renovated. Here are a few tips and tricks for keeping your young kids safe throughout the home redesign process.

Alter Your Habits

Keeping your children out of dangerous renovation zones can be difficult, especially if you’re redesigning spaces they use every day. The best way to keep your children out of harm’s way is to create an alternative space they can occupy during the renovations. For instance, if you’re having your kitchen remodelled, create a temporary kitchen space in your garage, basement or any other available space where your children can go grab a snack without interrupting the renovations and putting themselves in danger.

Prepare Your Ventilation

Many children suffer from respiratory conditions, such as allergies and asthma, that can be triggered by the particles and debris created during the construction process. Sealing off HVAC ducts and venting in the area, using disposal drop sheets, and maintaining a clean workspace are all things that a professional contractor will do to ensure that your home renovations don’t ruin the air quality in the rest of your house. If your child suffers from a respiratory condition or is especially sensitive to ventilation issues, let us know at Miter Renovations and we’ll be sure to take the extra precautions necessary to ensure that proper air quality is maintained through the renovation process.
