Central Valley Rental Properties – Is Your Property Safe for Small Children?

By RPM Central Valley

With spring officially here more renters than ever before will be searching for Central Valley Rental Properties.

Although your home, condo, town home or single family home may look great, the reality is that if it’s not safe for small children you could be losing more money than you know.

In today’s post we will break down exactly how you can get your Central Valley Rental Properties ready for small children.

Tip 1 – Examine the Grounds Surrounding Your Property

Search for anything that could be considered to be dangerous for kids, especially small children, including: downed tree branches, gopher holes, debris or garbage which may have been left on the property after the previous tenant rented there.

Tip 2 – Post the Speed Limit for Your Property

If you own a multi-family unit make sure you have the speed limit posted on your property since it’s easy for some people to speed in and out of a residential area, and that’s when accidents occur.

Tip 3 – Confirm That Your Swimming Pool Is Secure

It doesn’t matter if you own a single family home with a swimming pool, or a multi-family rental unit with a swimming pool, make sure you secure pool access for all of your Central Valley Rental Properties to make sure small children are not able to get into the pool.

Tip 4 – Create a Dedicated Play Area

Children will play with anything they can get their hands on, including abandoned shopping carts, and this can present a problem if you don’t have a dedicated play area on your property. To avoid this problem consider creating a dedicated play area which includes a slide, monkey bars and traditional play structure so kids know where to go when they are playing outside.
