Windows are a beautiful and useful feature for any space. They not only let light in but can be used as a way to see what is going on outside. No matter how often you use your windows, every family should make it a priority to practice window safety to help keep everyone in the home, especially children, safe. Being mindful of windows and the danger they can pose to residents of a house is the first step towards implementing window safety in your space.
Window Safety 101
Keeping children and other residents of the home safe around windows only takes a few simple preventative steps. Once all of the windows around the home have been identified, these window safety tips will help ensure that windows add beauty and function to a home without the worry of any risks.
Take Preventative Measures
Windows are meant to be a barrier for a home, but they are also meant to be opened and ventilate the space. Taking some preemptive window safety measures can help you enjoy your windows to the fullest. A sturdy and reliable window security screen will allow you to still feel the breeze while keeping bugs and possible intruders out and children safe on the inside. While there are options for ways to protect your windows, only a Crimsafe Security Screen will give you unparalleled security and benefits without compromising the look of your space.
Keep Windows Locked & Closed
Even with a great security screen, if you aren’t using your windows and children will be around, every window should be closed and locked. Anyone with kids can tell you that children have a habit of getting into things that you might not have believed were possible. By taking the steps to ensure windows are closed, locked, and childproofed, you make it a little more difficult for any kids in the home to get them open and help to keep them protected from accidents.
Only Open Windows That are Out of Reach
If a child can get into it, they probably will find a way. Thankfully, when they are younger there are a lot of places that are naturally out of their reach. When choosing which windows you open for ventilation, choose the ones that the kids in your home won’t be able to reach or pull themselves up onto. You will also want to make sure that any furniture is kept away from windows so that they can’t climb up to them and get access.
Always Provide Supervision
The best way to keep kids safe and secure is to ensure that they are always supervised by an adult. By providing adult supervision, whether it is a parent, trusted friend, or babysitter, you will be able to steer the actions of a child away from situations that could cause them harm or lead to accidents. While an older sibling can help lend a hand in supervising when you may be busy, you will still want to check in as your judgment as an adult will often be more reliable and lead to better, safer decisions.
