Consider padding the edges of sharp furniture if you have small children or clumsy animals. You can even turn this into a stylish do-it-yourself project. You can get protectors for the corners of your furniture from a store or just use tape made of foam and if you wish your car to have protection too, consider having carport kits. Another thing that you should do is tape down loose wiring that can strangle your child.
Tie or cut dangling blind cords. You can avoid a disaster by a child or pet becoming tangled in them and potentially strangling. Leave just enough cord so you can use the blinds, but don't leave any that will cause a problem.
