Preventing Slips and Falls
Slips and falls are one of the leading causes of injury in the home. Take a few moments to see if your walk areas are potentially hazardous. Evaluate all of your loose throw rugs and runners. If they can move, you will need to either replace them with rugs with a non-slip backing or use double sided carpet tape to secure them to the floor. If any of your rugs are curling up at the edges, discard them. You should also remove any obstructions in your hallways and entry areas.
