Your home is full of things you hold dear, especially when occupied by family and friends. Families with small children and senior citizens understand that making the home an environment free of slip and fall accidents is of the utmost importance.
According to the National Safety Council, nearly 29,500 individuals died from slip and fall accidents in 2013 alone, many seniors. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that one out of three older adults falls each year, and in 2013, 2.5 million individuals visited the ER for slip and fall nonfatal injuries. That’s a lot pain and suffering.
Take a minute to think about the areas of your home where the outdoor elements make their way inside creating a slippery mess. This could include: entryways, hallways, garage floors and areas near doors. Now think about the areas in the home where people create slick situations. This could include: the kitchen, wet bar, artist studio, etc. Do such water-prone trouble spots exist in your home?
While there are various areas that may pose a slip and fall hazard depending on your lifestyle and home setup, bathrooms are the most common areas where harmful (and even fatal) accidents occur.
Getting in and out of the bathtub or shower can be a dangerous situation for even the most agile of humans! Keep everyone safe with the proven non slip flooring treatments from Slip Resistant Solutions. Do you have ceramic, travertine or terrazzo tile in your bathroom? Or perhaps your bathroom surface of choice is polished marble, polished granite or polished porcelain tile? These microscopic abrasion treatments are DIY, easy to apply at any skill level, and increase the coefficient of friction without changing the appearance of your bathroom surface. So, if you just indulged in a gorgeous natural stone remodel, safety and beauty now go hand in hand. (You really can have it all!)
Skip the non slip mat around the toilet, nix non slip bathtub mat in front of the shower, and throw out those non skid rubber appliques inside the tub. While these products have long been used in the home, they are often the hideout for bacteria, germs and soap scum – all of which can be a real doozy to clean. Plus, non slip bath rugs and adhesive stickers can be the root of trip accidents themselves! Longer lasting and more affordable options are available to cover every inch of slippery tile beneath the feet of your loved ones.
