SERVPRO Says Keep Your Children Safe from Home Remodel Sites in Naples

Most children love to watch big vehicles and “workers working” so you can only imagine what a joy it is for them to see a dump truck pull up in front of our house and unload a full driveway full of gravel.

When in the midst of a remodel to your Naples home, no matter if it is a small bathroom or a large addition, it is exciting and new for children. It is important to understand that though the workers clean up reasonably well each evening, it is the parent’s job to be the safety monitor where the kids are concerned.

It might look enticing, but that mound of torn up lumber has nails sticking out of it and nasty allergens floating around it. So the first rule of the remodel is a tip from SERVPRO: Kids can only visit the work site with their parents or supervised adult. We insist on either holding hands or carrying them so we can see precisely what they see. Any tools are off-limits.

 Another great tip is always to let your contractor know the number of children in the house, their ages, and whether any of them are likely to be a bit too curious. However, as a parent, you are the first and the last line of defense for your children's welfare and safety.

For restoration and repairs after a damaging event from mold, fire, or smoke, trust the pros from SERVPRO of Naples/Marco Island by dialing (239) 302-5700.
