This number might shock you but according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission 41 people lost their lives due to falling televisions, furniture and appliances in 2011. That number actually represents an increase in the number of these types of accidental fatalities. Additionally, there were over 43,000 reported injuries from falling furniture. How can this happen? In many cases it might just come down to a matter of clutter. If you’ve got too much clutter in your home then it’s going to be hard to get around. Things are stacked up on very shaky ground. Reaching for something high on a shelf can bring the whole structure tumbling down. What’s truly sad is that these kinds of accidents are completely preventable.
There are many objects in your home which would be better served if they were secured to the wall. This is especially true with all those brand new flat screen televisions which look better hanging like a painting than sitting on a entertainment center. It’s important to make sure those wall units are mounted professionally. If you have young kids putting something out of reach isn’t the best option. Instead a desired toy or trinket you be put out of sight. Remove the temptation and you remove the potential for an accident.
