Child Proofing Questions Answered

How long have you been in business?

Baby Proofers Plus, a reputable child proofing company, was founded by Howard and Rene Appelbaum in 1993, one of the pioneer companies in the industry on the East Coast.

How much does it cost?

Cost varies depending on each individual situation. Most 2 bedroom/2 bath apartments in NYC average around $600. Most typical 2 floor homes average $1,200 - $1,500. The two most important factors in determining cost is the size of your home and how much baby proofing you want to do. You will receive an itemized estimate within 24 hours of the home safety assessment detailing our safety product recommendations along with the cost of labor to install those products in your home. You then have several options to help stay within your budget: we can do it all for you (most customers select this option), you can pick and choose, even break it up in phases as your child develops, or do it on your own.

When should I baby proof my home?

Ideally, you should baby proof your home before your child becomes mobile and inquisitive. Keep in mind, mobility includes rolling, pushing backward, trying to pull up --- not just crawling and walking.

Will you install products I purchased on my own?

There are lots of child safety products on the market. Some are top quality products, others are not. We would install products you may have already purchased if, in our experience and opinion, we know the products are safe, reliable and effective. We stand behind any product that you purchase from us.

Do you have solutions for pets as well as babies?

Yes, we have several gates to prevent dogs from having access to certain areas of the home and solutions to allow cats to roam while keeping cat litter boxes out of reach of babies.

Do you have solutions for spiral staircases, terraces, decks or railings?

One of Baby Proofers Plus most touted specialties is the custom application of Plexiglas and Lexan for spiral staircases and interior/exterior open rail spaces. Once custom-fitted and installed your baby will be safer and the finished result will be virtually unnoticeable – views will not be obstructed, aesthetics will not be compromised and there will be nothing to repair years later when you move or no longer need the child safe guarding.

Do you use subcontractors to conduct safety assessments or for installations?

No. We are passionate about what we do and our unparalleled reputation exists because we do it all ourselves --- so when you hire Baby Proofers Plus, you get us.

Are you insured?

Yes. We are fully insured.

Which cities/counties do you service?

Baby Proofers Plus provides service to New York City, most of north/central NJ including Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Morris, Passaic, Somerset and Union counties. For our valued customers who also have a home in the country, we will provide service in other areas.

How long does it take to baby proof a home?

On average, most city apartments take about 2 hours to baby proof while a single-family, two story homes typically takes about 4 hours. And, the best part is there is nothing you need to do to get ready for us.

Why should I use Baby Proofers Plus to baby proof my home?
