Welcoming a new baby into your family can be overwhelming when it comes to assessing your home for safety; each stage has its own safety needs. So, can you do it yourself or is it worth calling in a professional to find those hidden dangers?
Källababy paired local mom Teresa with Gate Maven Childproofing Services Ottawa.
Here is what she had to say:
We contacted Sharalyn from Gate Maven Childproofing Services to do a safety inspection of my home in preparation for the arrival of our second child.
The home safety inspection began with a tour of our house. While we thought we had all of the basics covered after we baby-proofed for our first child (i.e., outlet covers, baby gates for the stairs, etc.), Sharalyn pointed out a number of potential safety issues that we had never even considered. In hindsight, some of these issues were fairly obvious (and I was embarrassed that we’d missed them), yet Sharalyn raised each issue without judgement and was genuinely interested in improving the safety of our home. She was also able to readily identify behavioural changes and/or appropriate safety products to address any dangers she pointed out.
After the tour, Sharalyn e-mailed us a personalized report that re-iterated all of the potential safety issues she had noticed during the inspection and provided links to cost-effective safety products that could be purchased online. Gate Maven also provides installation services, should they be required.
It is clear that Sharalyn is very knowledgeable in the childproofing field which she has cultivated firsthand through her experiences with her own children, as well as through years of working in the industry. She’s seen it all! I would highly recommend Gate Maven to both first-time and seasoned parents!
