Slips, trips and falls are a common concern wherever you go, including your home. Fortunately, these can be avoided with a few simple changes to your household. Double J’s Installations, a quality flooring and carpeting company in Flagstaff, AZ, provides quality flooring services to ensure that your floors not only look good, but are properly installed as well.
Leading Causes of Falls
The majority of falls happen due to a combination of factors. Some of these include:
- Slippery surfaces
- Wet floors
- Worn or peeling mats or throw rugs without a non-slip backing
- Poor lighting
The following is a checklist of preventative measures to minimize flooring-related incidents:
- Non-slip strips or mats
- Floors clear of spills or pooled water
- Plenty of floor space between furniture
- Floors clear of clutter, including throw rugs, electric cords or other hazards
- Good lighting
- Good foot protection
- Compliant Flooring
Choosing the Right Flooring Material
Though wet floors in bathrooms or kitchens may be the most possible suspects for home-related falls, the highest-frequency area is actually the living room. Fortunately, by installing flooring with a degree of shock absorbance, you can avoid nasty falls. A plush carpet installed by Double J’s carpeting services in Flagstaff, AZ can help insulate heat, reduce noise, and make your living area a safer place for play or children’s early steps.
Vinyl floors, on the other hand, provide easy-to-clean surfaces that resist stains and scratches in kitchens. Both vinyl flooring and refinished hardwood floors are hypoallergenic and minimize the risk of allergies from particles and dust, and they provide a solid and clean surface without splinters, making them safer for children and animals.
