As the nation prepares to celebrate the 1st birthday of Prince George this Thursday, home insurance specialist, Together Mutual Insurance, has compiled some top tips on safeguarding the home for those with a little havoc-wreaking prince or princess of their own. These include: opting for easy clean wallpaper, as children love scribbling (especially on walls). Baby proofing sharp corners, but also check that in doing so, you won’t damage or devalue your favourite piece of furniture. Investing in hard wearing sofas as although standard contents policies include an element of cover for accidental damage – including stereo equipment and glass-in furniture – they don’t cover accidental damage to other goods or actual furnishings. A standard home insurance policy doesn’t cover portable electrical equipment and clothing for accidental damage. So, as much as your phone or iPad pacifies your child, it might be better to get them a child friendly version and to hang your favourite expensive jacket out of harm’s way.
