Most people enjoy spending time outside with their families. For that reason, some parents and grandparents who are homeowners have decided to install playground equipment on their property. This can be an awesome way for kids to get fresh air, sunshine, and exercise, all while forming memories to treasure for years to come.
However, if you own a playground set, you also own a responsibility to make sure that it’s safe year after year. In our area, the changing seasons can cause warping in the materials used to form a playground, and wet weather can cause changes to the ground. This can lead to loose nuts and bolts, rotting wood, and exposed rocks or run-off ground cover. For these reasons and others, it’s important to give the old swing set, slide, or other playground equipment in your yard a thorough inspection once the temperatures start warming up. This is a good way to keep your beloved little ones safe.
