It is clear that having a cellar can be a cost-effective and simple storage solution in a home. Having a cellar may be a luxury but it is certainly a place where you are prone to slips, trips and falls.
The maintenance of such a room is absolutely essential as it can have a serious knock-on effect on the safety of the rest of your home. There may be a school of thought which says that the workplace is the most likely place you can suffer an accident but you can be just as unfortunate in your cellar too.
Here is a five point checklist to ensure you keep your cellar safe:
1. Make sure you control any potential water supply you may have in your cellar, and regularly check and rectify any water leaks.
2. Ensure there is ventilation in the cellar otherwise the humidity and condensation could make it a toxic room.
3. Ensure that any potential exits to and from the cellar are unblocked.
4. Be careful that you don’t overstock the cellar or you could leave slip, trip and falls hazards.
5. If you see any mould in your cellar instantly resolve the issue and try and address the causes.
