Holiday Safety Tips for Your Interior

Safety of decorated christmas tree and your familyThe holidays are a time of year when we gather with friends and family and celebrate the things that we hold dear. The holidays are also a time when unique situations present the possibility of injury and accident. Follow these tips to keep the inside of your home safe for your family and friends this season.

  1. The Tree

Keep your kids and pets in mind when you decorate the tree. Little ones will want to grab shiny ornaments and pets will want to play with tinsel. If you have breakable ornaments, put them towards the top of your tree. Keep larger, plastic ornaments towards the bottom where little hands can reach.

  1. Watch the Lights

Everyone loves beautiful holiday lights. Check them regularly, especially if you have kids and pets. Make sure they are plugged in properly, make sure the cords are not frayed, and be sure that no connections are loose.

  1. Toxic Plants

There are several types of plants that can be toxic to humans and pets. Mistletoe berries, Jerusalem cherries and holly berries are poisonous in certain amounts. If a child or pet eats a piece of a toxic plant, contact the proper medical professionals immediately. You can also call the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222.

  1. Toys

When buying toys for your little ones, make sure that they are safe. Read warning labels and instructions. Scour the Internet for current recalls. Toys made for children have age recommendations on the box or bag. Be sure to check these and buy toys that are age-appropriate.

  1. Button Batteries

If you buy decorations or toys that use button batteries, keep the loose batteries away from children and animals. These tiny batteries may look innocent enough, but they are choking hazards.

  1. Cooking Safety

If you are going to let kids help with the cooking and baking, take the time to give a lesson on kitchen safety. Don’t assume that your children know to use pot holders, hold things with two hands, or even how to use utensils properly. Children do not know these things unless they are taught.

The holidays should be a time of joy and merriment. Make sure that you follow these tips to keep your home safe for the holidays. Your whole family will be the better for it.
