Safety Remodeling Tips When Working In The Bathroom
Bathroom remodeling is perhaps one of the most frequently undertaken projects aside from perhaps kitchen remodeling. With that said, there are some important basic safety remodeling tips that homeowners and contractors should consider with regard to bathroom remodel projects. For example, electrical shock is a major concern when working in a bathroom due to exposure to both water and electricity.
Using Electrical Appliances
Contractors and homeowners doing even minor work in a bathroom should always avoid plugging in appliances, power tools and power equipment when there is standing water present. Equally important is to avoid using electrical appliances, equipment and tools in an environment such as a bathtub or shower stall where water is present. Another major safety concern when it comes to doing a bathroom-remodeling project is that of slip and fall related accidents. A bathroom can be a slippery environment especially when it is under construction and being remodeled.
The Added Benefits With Regard To Safety Are Considerable
Equally important and worth considering when having a remodeling project performed on a bathroom is to consider the installation of grab bars if they are not already installed. These are handy safety devices that can go a long way in keeping children and adults alike safe in a bathroom environment well after a remodeling project has been completed. Best of all, grab bars are easy to install and inexpensive. The added benefits associated with safety are considerable with regard to these basic devices. Another key aspect of maintaining high levels of safety during a remodeling project is to always keep medicines and potentially toxic substance out of reach of children.
Provide Adequate Lighting
This is an important consideration simply due to the fact that these types of items may be moved around and be more accessible during a remodeling project. Play it safe and always keep potentially hazardous items well out of reach of children. Finally, as an added note perhaps one of the most important aspects of maintaining safety in a bathroom environment when doing a remodeling project is always provide adequate lighting. One of the easiest ways to fall or trip in a bathroom environment (especially with potentially slippery floors) is to have inadequate lighting.
