RISMEDIA, June 17, 2010—Inspect-It 1st has created a free whitepaper, titled Safety Defects Found During A Home Inspection That Are Especially Dangerous for Children, highlighting areas and situations that may be harmful to kids, and ways to reduce the risk of potentially fatal accidents.
“As certified home inspectors, we not only help consumers make educated property decisions, but also educate homeowners on ways to maintain the comfort and safety of their home ongoing. For young children in particular, the home can be a dangerous place instead of a safe haven,” stated Chris Earley. “This whitepaper brings attention to these potentially hazardous areas while providing suggestions for keeping children safe.”
While not intended to be exhaustive, the whitepaper discusses the safety concerns most commonly detected during an Inspect-It 1st home inspection, including the following concerns and areas:
– Accidental Drowning
– Garage Doors
– Guardrails and Handrails
– Carbon Monoxide/Home Fires
– Bedroom Window Egress
– Closets, Attics and Crawlspaces
“It’s important to keep in mind that no home is free from defects, not even a brand new one. But through awareness, prevention and proactive correction, we can keep our families safe,” stated Earley.
