Do you have a baby on the way or one already in your house?
Renting a Lone Star Self-Storage unit could be just the tool you need to help eliminate hazards that you may not notice but that could severely injure the small children in your life.
Some furniture just isn’t safe for kids who lack the coordination and judgment of adults. A toddler may see that attractive but unstable shelving unit in your living room as a jungle gym and try to climb it like Spider Man – only to have the entire unit fall on top of him or her.
The good news is that you can help avoid tragedies like these by taking a few simple precautions and getting a Lone Star self-storage unit. Here are some steps you can to make your home safer:
STEP 1: Look around your home or apartment to check for the things – such furniture with sharp edges, heavy/unstable items and glass furnishings – that could potentially harm a child.
STEP 2: If there’s something you want to keep that could be “kid unfriendly,” think about how you could make it safer. For example, use furniture bumpers for sharp corners and mats to keep rugs from sliding across slippery floors.
STEP 3: Anything you can’t make safe will need to go in one of three places: a charity shop like the Goodwill, the trash heap or into your Lone Star self-storage unit.
It may seem a headache to have to part – even if only temporarily – with items that you enjoy having around. But peace of mind you’ll feel will be worth the effort. Besides, it won’t be long before your child will be big enough to make his or her way around the less safe furniture in your house.
