If you install garage storage cabinets in Phoenix, you will not only improve the appearance of your house and garage, you will also reduce your chances for household accidents. Here are some sobering statistics regarding household accidents, from WEBMD:
“Home may be a place to escape the dangers of the outside world, but a new report shows dangers abound on the home front as well — causing as many as 20,000 deaths, 7 million disabling injuries, and 20 million hospital trips in the U.S. each year…
The Home Safety Council commissioned the report, “The State of Home Safety in America.” The authors say it’s the first comprehensive look at the prevalence of unintentional injuries in the home as well as what causes them.Researchers say many Americans don’t think about making their home safer because, for the most part, they don’t even know the problem of home hazards exists. Statistics about home injuries are hard to compile and often incomplete.” [READ SOURCE ARTICLE]
As for what causes a lot of household injuries it can be broken down into a few categories. Trip hazards are one problem of a cluttered garage or a cluttered home. All it takes is one tool out of place and you can go sprawling. Garden tools for example often have long handles that are too easily tripped over. Another cause of household injuries is falls. For example, if you have a box that is up high on a shelf and you fall from a stepladder when trying to retrieve it, the fall can be catastrophic, or even fatal. The final household accident type is falling objects.
Garage Cabinets: A Safe Alternative
Garage storage cabinets clear up potential dangers from falling objects. Look at what happens when a box falls on someone’s head. You run the risk of a concussion or other form of head trauma, especially if the object in question is heavy enough. However, it may not be just you that is in danger. What about small children or a household pet. Look at something like a hammer stored on top of a shelf. If it falls on your head or foot it will most likely hurt, but to a small child or a cat or dog, it would be the equivalent of a sledgehammer falling on you.
While all of these scenarios are just possibilities, they are very real dangers. How can you avoid becoming a statistic on a chart? One way is to install custom garage cabinets in Phoenix
