Keep Your Child Healthy And Safe: New Findings Show Danger of Indoor Play Areas
Earlier in the week, you made plans with some other parents to meet at the park for your kids to have a play date. But the weather can be unpredictable and the dark clouds are signifying rain is on the way. One of the parents calls to move the play date to an indoor play area so the kids won't be disappointed. You agree, but remember the article you read about the dangers of indoor play areas.
As your California Health Insurance agency, and fellow parents, we want your family to be safe and healthy. The CNN article states that indoor play areas are a major host to bacteria and other pathogens such as Staph aureus and E. coli. The article also pointed out there were certain maintenance problems found, which included broken windows, missing bolts, and shredded webbing. Many indoor play areas have a lack of cleaning and maintenance regulation, and therefor, are putting your children in danger.
So what do you do? You volunteer to call the play area to get information on their cleaning schedule. You can also take extra precautions while in the play area such as frequent hand washing and/or use of anti-bacterial gel. You can also suggest a more frequent cleaning schedule to the staff at the play area in order to keep children healthy so they can return for future play dates.
As a parent you do your best to protect your family, but some things are out of your control, which is why California health insurance is so important. Call John E. Peakes Insurance Agency today to find out if you are getting the best rate on your health insurance policy. Just like you want the best for your family, we want the best for you!
