Sooner or later, your child will learn to crawl, walk, and jump around your house. Create a safe space for them with these child-proofing tips.

When moving into a new house or condominium, it is important to consider which areas of your home are safe for your child to roam around and play. With that being said, child-proofing is necessary to avoid the perils lurking in your home.

Whether you are moving into a brand new house, condo, or a foreclosed property, here are six tips for you to effectively child-proof your home.

Soften Sharp Edges

As your child starts to crawl and walk, add corner guards to your furniture to prevent your child from getting bruises and cuts from hitting these sharp corners. If your home has pillars and columns, install safety padding around them so that your kids won’t get hurt when running or crawling around.

If your kitchen and bathroom countertops are slightly rough because they are in a newly-purchased foreclosed house or condominium, sand them down to make a curved surface. Do any necessary household repairs that will make child-proofing hassle-free and effective.
