TotSafe At-Home Babyproofing Service
TotSafe has been offering professional home childproofing services to families in the Southeast Michigan area for 10 years.
We specialize in working with our clients differently to provide the best services each family. Sometimes that means we inspect the home from top to bottom. Sometimes its just one room. We work with you to come up with a plan which works for you, your child, your home, and your budget.
How does TotSafe's home childproofing service work?
TotSafe offers home baby-proofing services to parents and caregivers of infants and toddlers.
In-home, room-by-room evaluation by our professional childproofers, including
a thorough babyproofing checklist,
discussion of child safety concerns and suggestions,
product consultation and selection.
The in-home consultation and product selection generally takes about 2 hours. Once we have completed the in-home consultation, and you approve the product selections, we can generally schedule the product installation 2-5 days later.
Installations can take anywhere from 2 to 8 hours (depending on home size).
At the time of installation, a TotSafe babyproofer will also offer product training to all caregivers in the household.
There is an hourly fee for installation, as well as the retail cost of all products installed.
If you are handy with tools, you can choose to have TotSafe deliver your products to your door for you to do-it-yourself.
Totsafe services suburbs in southeast Michigan (Oakland, Macomb, St. Clair and parts of Wayne County).
Please call if you are out of the area, sometimes we are able to accommodate a larger service area for an extra fee.
Why hire a professional home babyproofing service?
Reason 1: 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.
Reason 2: "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 child?
Reason 3: "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.
Reason 4: "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 child.
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. Call us today!
