Bringing Up a Baby in a Safe Environment Requires an Effective Home Alarm

New parents oftentimes spend months preparing their home for the arrival of their newborn (who will soon be a teetering toddler), stowing away breakable knick-knacks and the good china and gating off stairways. But can you be sure that you’ve covered all situations that are potentially dangerous, whether for the apple of your eye or for your family heirlooms? Consider the following suggestions for further child-proofing your home.

Certain obvious disaster situations that need to be guarded against include firearms and sharp knives. Sure, maybe you’ve set the safety on your hunting gun and snapped your knives into their cases, but a curious child can do just about anything. Best to take the extra measure of locking everything away in a cabinet or a case that is stowed out of the way – even better if your kids don’t even know you have potential weapons in your home. Keep an eye on gardening tools and the workroom, as well – screwdrivers, nails, hammers, and shears can all be just as harmful. Hanging them well out of reach is one idea, or making certain that doors to those areas are always locked securely.

Toxics – kitchen cleaning, medicine cabinet & purse, garden shed, garage

Small children have the tendency to explore, a wonderful characteristic unless they go rooting through the cabinet under the kitchen sink. Poisonous substances are all around us and need to be stored in such a way as to not allow children to accidentally swallow them. Many containers come designed with child-proof lids that even some adults have trouble prying off, but for extra caution, pull toxic matters out from low spaces and stash them away on a high shelf. Do the same with your medicine cabinet, and keep an eye on purses or bags that may contain pill boxes or prescription medication. Also, don’t forget about toxic liquids in the garage and the garden shed; fertilizers, weed killers, auto oil, and gasoline are serious hazards.

A flimsy screen will likely not support the weight of a child’s body and should not be considered a sufficient barrier. Rather, bar windows that will put a child in immediate danger of falling out, though remember that at least one window in each room must allow escape access in case of a fire.

Speaking of fire, fully-functioning smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are essential, as is a complete list of emergency numbers, including poison control and the doctor. Orient babysitters with home security systems and make sure that they are familiar with how to activate and turn off the home alarm, as well as how to contact police, fire, and emergency dispatch. Child caregivers should also be familiar with basic first aid and what do to in case of an emergency – if you are placing your trust in someone else to care for your child, be sure that they have all of the right skills and tools.

Deter crime against your home with an ADT house alarm. You’ll be able to relax at work, at night, and on vacation when your home is being watched over by an ADT home alarm system.

Keep Your Pet in a Comfortable Environment

As a pet owner, you must be conscious of your pet’s health because you are your beloved pet’s primary caregiver.  Since your pets provide so much for you, it is only normal that you would want to provide them with the most comfortable environment possible.  Here are some ways to ensure that your cat, dog or other type of pet is in the best environment possible. 

Pet Boarding

Pet boarding services are suitable for pets whose owners are unavailable to take care of them for a certain length of time.  In general, the duration of the pet boarding can vary from one night to a few month’s time.  This service can be offered to a variety of pets, ranging anywhere from horses to hamsters.  Pet boarding services usually include feeding, playing with the pets, training and other activities.  With today’s technology, some boarding/day care centers have even installed web cameras so that you can watch your pet live on your computer while you are away to ensure that they are in the best hands.  Pet boarding is a great option to consider.

Pet Daycare

Pet daycare is something quite different from pet boarding.  Unlike with pet boarding, pet daycare services usually deal with taking care of the pets while the owners are at work or out for the day.  At the end of the workday, the pet owners will pick their pets up from the pet daycare provider.  Pet daycare services are often offered to dogs but can involve other animals as well.  At pet daycare, the pets usually have everything they need from food bowls to toys and more.  It is a great way for the dog or other animal to receive care and get to interact with other pets during the day.

Pet Spas

The current trend in pet care is pet spas.  The main focus of pet spas is small animals like dogs, cats, ferrets, guinea pigs and rabbits.  At pet spas, the pets are often trained, exercised, pampered and groomed.  There are oftentimes do-it-yourself pet spas where the owners have to train and groom their own pets in order to improve the bond between them but the spa will provide the necessary space and grooming equipment such as the wash basin, shampoo and nail clippers.  Whichever type of pet spa you choose, your pet is sure to love the pampering aspect to it. 

If you are looking for pet care services, keep these previously mentioned services in mind and provide your pet with the best care possible.

Petsitting.com is an innovative website connecting pet owners with professional pet service providers. This site allows pet owners to search for pet care providers close to where they live, and is 100% free for the consumer.  Services currently offered include: dog walking, pet sitting, pet boarding, pet grooming, doggie daycare, pet waste removal, dog training and pet insurance.
