    Where should you keep your cleaning chemicals?


    Slips, trips and falls are common household accidents. More often than not, they lead to minor injuries such as bruising or slight cuts. Yet, there are greater hazards around in the household, and knowing where to keep your cleaning chemicals can help minimise any risks in your home.

    Where to keep your cleaning chemicals

    Like many people, you may choose to keep your cleaning chemicals under your kitchen sink. This is a common cupboard of choice for cleaning chemicals, but is it a safe one?

    If you have children, it is especially important to know where to keep your cleaning chemicals. You simply cannot rely on any childproof lids on bottles to prevent harm coming to your child.

    With this in mind, it is best if you choose a cupboard out of reach of children. If you do want to keep your cleaning chemicals under the sink, you should fit a childproof bolt onto the door and ensure it is locked at all times.

    Mishaps with cleaning chemicals can be fatal for children.

    Claiming compensation for accidents in the home

    If you have been involved in an accident at home, and you believe a third party, such as a manufacturer is to blame, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation for the harm you have suffered.

    When you buy a product in the UK, you do so in the belief that it will be safe to use, so long as you follow any guidance given with the product. In the case that a product is faulty, malfunctions, or is unfit for use, and as such causes you illness or injury, you could have a case to claim.
