Welcome a child into a safe environment and speed up your fostering or adoption case

Becoming a foster parent or adopting a child is a big, exciting step. It’s also a huge commitment accompanied by a lengthy list of rules, legal requirements, and hefty fees.  Whether you are doing this alone or with a partner or spouse, you can use all the help you can get.

As a foster or adoptive parent, you already have a lot on your plate — no need to add babyproofing/childproofing on the never-ending to-do list.

So, let’s talk about childproofing. Sounds simple, right?

How Does Childproofing Work?

Babyproofing/childproofing is more involved than you might think. Especially in fostering/adoption situations.

In addition to being prepared for your own and the child’s sake, you will need to go through the process of demonstrating your preparedness to a bunch of strangers.

Childproofing is a deciding factor when it comes to strangers deciding just how ready you are and how safe your home is for the child or children.

In most states, in addition to various government officials, your home will get inspected by a local fire marshal. They will be looking at your smoke alarms, floor plans, fire extinguishers, and so on. Oftentimes, they can get pretty finicky.

This is where super dads at Ouch Proofers come in…

When you hire our team, you won’t have to worry about assessing and neutralizing hidden dangers nor will you have to touch a hammer or a drill. Our super dads will do all the planning and measuring.

Because who wants to spend hours and hours scouring the internet for baby gates, corner protectors, and various straps and latches? How one even knows which parts are reliable and which ones are flimsy? The dads have done the research!

On the day of scheduled installation, a team member will come to your home and childproof the property in one session.

Hazards in the kitchen, fireplaces, tricky stairs, sharp corners, hidden dangers in the bathroom: the dads will take care of it all.

In addition, we will make sure you have the correct fire extinguishers, approved smoke alarms, and floor plans posted on each level for an escape in case of fire.

Our services are affordable, and we are available in Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia.

All in all, getting childproofing done by professionals will ensure that you meet and exceed safety requirements put in place by various adoption and fostering agencies in your county.
