We all know that there are many dangers in the world. But did you ever think about what is lurking around your house? It’s important to always be aware of what possible hazards are in your home. Here we have a list of eight hidden hazards in your home – and how to avoid them!
1) Unstable Furniture
2) Sharp Edges
3) Cooking Mishaps
4) Broken Floorboards
5) Cords and Appliances
6) Falling Objects
7) Bulky Furniture
1) Unstable furniture:
Make sure to move items that might be unstable, such as stacks of books or boxes. Even a small shift in weight could lead to a tipping disaster.
2) Sharp edges:
Be mindful when walking around corners so you don’t accidentally cut yourself on any sharp objects like knives or broken glass. If there is any chance someone with mobility issues will visit, it’s important they know about these risks ahead of time and have an appropriate plan for their safety.
3) Cooking mishaps:
Take caution when cooking to avoid spilling hot liquids or oils on yourself. Always use a pot holder when lifting something from the stovetop, and never leave anything cooking unattended.
4) Broken floorboards:
This one is a little more obvious, but it’s important to be mindful of where you step. Check for cracks or holes in the ground before stepping on an uneven surface and risking injury.
5) Cords and Appliances:
Be sure to keep your cords out of the way so they don’t tangle with something else. Place any appliances that generate heat (such as space heaters or microwaves) at least three feet away from anything flammable.
6) Falling objects:
It’s important to keep any breakable or fragile items away from high-traffic areas and ledges.
7) Bulky furniture:
Furniture that takes up a lot of space and can’t be pushed against the wall will often block entrances or access to other parts of the house.
Consistent use of electronics can lead to eye strain, headaches, and computing neck. If possible, limit the time you spend on your computer or tablet so that you don’t experience any health concerns.
*Note that this is a list of eight hazards, not the only hazards in your home. The best way to avoid these dangers is always be aware and on guard while you’re at home.
