Bathroom safety: Keep it safe

You may not expect danger to lurk in the most unlikely places. It happened to me. You were taking a bath when suddenly, the tap broke, and a jet of high-speed water sprayed out. This plastered you against the wall and immobilized you in shock. Your maid may have cleaned the floor of the bathroom but left soap on it. Anyone in the family will slip and fall, possibly with disastrous results. Electrical appliances with faulty wiring can send you flying two feet with a sudden current.

You would probably agree that after having encountered two of the three potential hazards in the bathroom, you are very cautious about the risks of the room. I’m also a bit OCD. I’m teased by my sister, but let me explain.

The bathroom and kitchen are the two most dangerous rooms in the house. Water is the bad master of the bathroom, while soap and water are the good servants in the kitchen. There is plenty of soap and water to create a rich lather, which, thanks to gravity, settles onto the floor and makes it slippery. The bathroom also has sharp-edged items like razors and scissors, so you can’t let a child in alone.

In all cases, it is better to be prepared than not. After all the research and experience I’ve had with bathroom safety, and how to make it foolproof, I’ve come up with a few conclusions that you can use in your own life.

Get an electrician to come in and check your bathroom’s wiring, sockets, and other appliances every so often. You can check the hair dryer, electric razor, heater, or any other appliance. Check that the wiring is safe and insulated. If necessary, replace it immediately.

When plugging in a geyser, be careful. They should ideally be placed at a height, far from water taps and away from any moisture.

Contact your plumber to check the life expectancy of your faucets and taps. It is like being sprayed with water by a cop on the street when a tap malfunctions. My friend sat down on his toilet, and it broke. Do not ask what happened. Replace any cracked basins, sinks, or commodes.

Do yourself and your elders a favor by installing slip-proof tiles. Many tiles are slip-pon the market roof and water-resistant on the market. It can be used around wet areas to keep the floor completely dry. I would even use a towel to clean the floor because I was so afraid of slipping.

Keep your bathroom clean. It’s not necessary to stress this. We all know that dirty water can cause moss, hard water can cause lime deposits, and slippery floors are dangerous.

After your child has finished using the bathroom, you can dry it again. They love to splash water around, and the bathroom will look like an indoor Jacuzzi. They also tend to be careless when it comes to soap, which can end up on the floor or under your feet when you enter! You should check the bathroom after your child has used it.

Lock cabinets when there is a child at home. Keep razors and scissors in the cabinets. Razors are especially dangerous, and you should be extra careful if you have children. I cut my eyebrows with a razor when I was seven, and I still have a scar. It could have gone worse, but…you get the idea.

If you have children at home, keep all lotions, mouthwashes, and soaps in locked cabinets. Keep medicines out of bathrooms.

Keep your bolt high enough from the inside if there is a child in the house. This will prevent him from locking himself in the bathroom. Bolt your bathroom at a height from the outside so that children cannot enter when you’re away.

Do not let a child under ten years old bathe alone in the tub.

Test the temperature of the water before bathing the children.

Please keep it clean, invest in an exhaust fan that works, and use proper lighting.
