Take a good hard look around your bathroom and you'll notice that everything has a hard edge to it. Porcelain tubs, sinks, and toilets, metal faucets and handles, tile floors don't offer a lot of give if you slip and fall.
Those are just surface-area hazards that must be properly navigated. We also shouldn't forget about the potential to be seriously burned by scalding water, and never be foolish enough to ignore the deadly combination of water and electricity. Here are some things you can do to make your bathroom a safer place:
Be certain that your bath or shower has non-skid mat or other similar strips on the standing area.
Your bathroom should have soft lighting without glare. This will make it much easier to see standing water on slippery surfaces.
All light switched need to be near the bathroom door, ensuring proper illumination when entering.
It's critically important that all electrical outlets are Ground Fault Circuit (GFC), which protect against electrical shock in by actually breaking the circuit immediately upon overload.
Home security is a combination of many things, including a monitored ADT home security system. When you take care of the smaller details, like safety in your bathroom and other rooms in your house, you're adding to the effectiveness of your overall home security plan.
