product installation 2-5 days later. Installations
can take anywhere from 2 to 8 hours (depending on home

Why hire a professional home babyproofing
Homes are not created with the safety of
children in mind. There are hundreds of hazards in the
home that create problems for children from electrical outlets to stairways, from sharp fireplace hearths to open
banisters, homes have a wide array of areas that can be
hazards to children. We pinpoint these hazards
and work with you to safeguard them.
"There are just too many items to choose from": If you go to your local baby specialty
retail store or search for childproofing products on the
internet you'll find thousands of products - how do you
know which ones are right for you, your home, and your
"I don't have the time": Many times, people have an appropriate
childproofing item still in the package, but haven't
gotten around to installing it yet because hubby is out
of town or works late hours and hasn't
been able to find time. We have the time, and will work with your schedule.
"My house is going to turn into a
padded room": Some parents think if they install
childproofing products they may as well turn their
house into one big padded room. Do you need to turn your
home into a padded room? The answer is no. Kids
actually need to be introduced to different colors,
textures, sounds, etc. to learn how things work. At
certain ages, they need to be able to pull themselves
up on furniture and navigate a stairway under adult
supervision to help develop gross motor skills. The keys
to keeping children at this stage safe are supervision and
appropriate childproofing for the age and needs of your
Our home babyproofers will work with you to
come up with a childproofing plan that works for you, your
home, your child, and your budget.
