Hiring Neal to babyproof our home is one of the best investments we’ve made since our son was born. Rather than spending hours researching childproofing products and struggling with installation ourselves, we trusted an expert to take care of everything in one day. Neal installed multiple baby gates for us and came up with custom mounting solutions when necessary. We couldn’t be happier with the results: securely mounted gates with no trip hazard and no damage to our banister. If necessary, we can also temporarily remove the gates at the touch of a button and then slip them back onto the wall-mounted hardware ourselves. He also childproofed our kitchen cabinets with hardware-mounted locks that we can turn on and off at our convenience, which is a big improvement from the adhesive-type locks we got from Amazon that our son yanked off within weeks.

Finally, Neal installed a lock that operates at the top of a door leading into our basement. Adults can reach it, kids can’t. A baby gate wouldn’t have worked in the doorway for a few reasons. His solution was simple and smart and one we’d never seen online.

SafeBeginnings provides an essential service for families with young children. We live in an average two-story suburban house with banister stairs, and childproofing it effectively was simply beyond our skill level. Unless you’re handy with power tools and good at choosing from among the hundreds of gate-mounting kits out there, the DIY route probably means frustration and wasted money. We’re glad we hired Neal instead. His workmanship is excellent and he was a pleasure to work with. We’d recommend him to anyone looking to childproof their home.

Neal from Safe Beginnings came and installed a baby gate at the top of our stairs. We have a unique railing set up so it was difficult to find a standard baby gate that we could install ourselves to fit. He was very kind and very efficient. The cost of labor is pricey, but I will say the gate is super sturdy, clean looking, and he was in and out VERY quickly the same day he came to inspect the situation. All in all, we are very satisfied.

We are beyond thrilled with the childproofing done by Neal at Safe Beginnings!  We just moved into a new home and Neal spent the entire day working tirelessly to make sure that every inch of the house was safe for our 2 year old son.  From replacing all of the outlets to be tamper proof to installing custom gate systems on each staircase and even locking access to crawl spaces throughout the house, Neal did an amazing job.  He was punctual and professional.  He walked me through everything he proposed, including cost, and even cleaned up dust left behind!  I would recommend Safe Beginnings to any parent who would like complete peace of mind that their home is safe for little ones.

As first time parents we were unsure about what we should childproof as our child becomes increasingly more mobile.  Neal did a great job at surveying our home and identifying key areas.  He then reviewed these with us.  Neal was extremely thorough and meticulous with the process.  We have peace of mind and we recommend Safe Beginnings Childproofing to anyone looking for childproofing assistance.
