Home safety is not just prevention of slips, trips, and falls. Environmental factors such as molds and different kinds of vapors can have harmful effects. Construction materials, including asbestos, paint, and gases can accumulate and kill you! When pests such as insects and rodents contaminate the home they bring diseases, parasites, and possible allergic reactions. Improperly maintained air conditioning, heating, and major appliances are an electrical hazard and can cause breathing complications. Right outside the home there are dangers lurking. Follow this guide to improve the safety and well-being of your loved ones.

Key Takeaways:

  • Most mushrooms are poisonous and can be deadly.
  • Racoon feces may contain parasites like roundworm which can infiltrate the organs, brain eyes and spinal cord.
  • Each year more than 25,000 children are injured by TVs or other falling furniture.
