The reality of accidents is that they can happen more at home than anywhere else. Imagine staying inside the comfort of your home and knowing that you are more prone to get into an accident compared to if you are at work or even when you are driving on the road! One of the leading causes of accidents are slips and falls. According to the National Safety Council, over 8 million people are reported each year for sustaining injuries related to slip and fall accidents. Because the weather is now shifting the colder season, it’s essential to safeguard your rental property and complete a few essential maintenance tasks designed to reduce slip and fall accidents on your Cypress rental homes.
Above everything that needs to be accomplished on your rental property upkeep, proper maintenance of exterior and interior walkways in a rental home must be strictly completed as it is vital to preventing slip- and fall-related injuries. Rental properties need to be monitored to guarantee that walkways and hallways are free of clutter, debris, leaks, runoff, and other obstacles. Another critical item to check is flooring and carpets, which should always be properly maintained and repaired as needed. Loose fibers, broken tile, peeling laminate flooring, and loose or missing handrails can all lead to serious injuries.
While checking the outside of your rental home, be wary of the walkways, make sure that they are clear of leaf debris, ice, and other problematic items. The exterior should be consistently checked to ensure that tenants are not storing objects in a manner that may obstruct walkways and present a hazard. Uneven surfaces should be fixed as quickly as possible, especially if ice is present. Chemical ice melt products should be used on steps and other high-traffic areas to ensure firm footing in freezing conditions.
As an owner of a rental home in Cypress, it can be challenging to make everyday safety a top priority. Safe hallways and walkways are essential, but remembering to monitor your properties both inside and out for hazardous conditions can be difficult when more important matters arise.
