Q. How long have you been in business?
A. Baby Home Safety was founded by Mike and Kim Bost in 2000.
Q. How much
does it cost?
A. Cost varies depending on each individual situation. Most jobs average
between $300 to $1200. The two most important factors in determining cost
are the size of your home and how much childproofing you want to do.
You will receive an itemized estimate (materials and labor) during your
home safety consultation--this will give you the best indication of what
it would cost to childproof your home.
Q. Can you do
the estimate and the installation all the same
A. Yes. We are fully capable of accommodating this request if you are
absolutely sure you are ready to have your home childproofed. We ask
only that you let us know beforehand so we can plan our schedule accordingly.
Q. I have some childproofing
products already--can you install them for me?
A. It depends. There are many, many child safety products on the market.
Some are well-made, others are not. We would be happy to install products
you have already purchased if, in our experience and judgment, we know
the products to be safe, durable, and effective.
Q. Can I purchase
the products from you and install them myself?
A. Yes, just remember child safety products are only effective when properly
Q. Do your gates work for dogs as well as babies?
A.Yes, we often install gates to prevent dogs from having access to certain areas of the home. Dog owners love our gates because they are durable and blend well with the decor of most homes. Our gates can also be easily removed from the wall mountings when needed.
Q. What areas do you
A. Baby Home Safety provides service to most of San Diego County including
North County Coastal, North County Inland, San Diego City Limits, Coronado,
East County, and the South Bay Area. We also serve the Temecula Valley and surrounding areas.
Q. Are you licensed,
bonded, and insured?
A. Yes. California law requires anyone performing work
in someone's home totaling $500 or more for materials and labor to be
licensed by the Contractors State License Board (CSLB). To become licensed,
a contractor must pass a state licensing examination, verify job proficiency
and experience, and carry a license bond.
Q. Do you use subcontractors for installation?
A. No. We do all installation of childproofing products ourselves--so you can be assured that your child's safety is in the hands of expert and qualified professionals.
Q. When should
I childproof my home?
A. Ideally, you should childproof your home before your baby becomes
mobile. Keep in mind, mobility could include rolling, scooting, crawling
or cruising--not just walking.
Q. Why should
I use a professional childproofer instead of doing
A. You will save time and energy by hiring a professional childproofer.
