What can you do to avoid any damage caused by dangerous chemicals?
This article does not attempt to train you on all the dangers or safe use of the products that have dangerous chemicals. We do want to set straightforward guidelines to keep your family and property safe from these chemical products.
Make sure that all chemicals must bear the label intact on the product container. Products that have lost their label must be disposed of properly along with all contents.
Store all chemical products in a safe location. Keep them out of reach of small children or pets. You should have a safe storage cabinet or locker that you can only access.
Before you use any chemical product, make sure you understand the hazards or threats it can pose to your health or property.
Avoid mixing household chemical products. There are household products that when mixed can result in potential serious injury from inhalation, explosion, accidental splash, and skin burn and irritation due to prolonged exposure.
