3 Tips To Keep Your Home Mishap Free This Holiday Season


If you receive many visitors during the holiday season, it would make sense to “guest-proof” your home. This is especially true if your guests bring along children. Here are three tips to keep your Christmas mishap free.

Reduce damages due to spilling:

Your couches are usually the most susceptible to damage due to spilling. Investing in a couch slipcover is an intelligent way to minimize such damage. A striking couch cover will also do wonders to enhancing the look of your room. Preferably buy a couch slip cover with a dark color such as the Latte Plush One-Piece Sofa Slip Cover, or one with an attractive design such as the 3pcs Burgundy Paisley Jacquard Sofa / Loveseat / Chair Slipcover, so that staining is not easily visible!

Remove your costly carpets and place color coordinated nonskid foot rugs on the floor. Also do not allow the children to litter toys on the floor. Keep napkins at an easily accessible place so that you can clean any spill immediately.

Prevent accidents due to fire:

One major fire hazard during the Christmas season is the live Christmas tree. Opt for an artificial prelit Christmas tree made of fire retardant material. Place an iron fireplace screen before fireplace so that sparks do not fly onto the carpet or those who are sitting near the fire. The screen will also add beauty to your décor.

Put away delicate items:

Put away precious breakable heirlooms. Better safe than sorry! Try and make the living room as child safe as you possibly can.

Following these tips will help to keep your home mishap-free to a great extent. Keep yourself alert and note if there are any other areas specific to your home where an accident can occur. Try and find a remedy to that specific problem area. Hope you have a safe, stress free and happy Christmas!
