If you are responsible for a property in Spain, you are legally obliged to ensure the safety of your customers. This means that both the owner and the agent letting the property, can be prosecuted and fined if a person slips and you have not taken reasonable steps to make the property safer, as required by Spanish and European law. In short, it states that if you have dangerous slippery floors or steps in wet conditions, and you do nothing to address the problem and manage these risks, you will be liable if a person slips and makes a claim against you. The laws in Spain are the same in all European countries regarding safety. Whether a person slips on a spillage in a restaurant, on wet tiles by a swimming pool, or in a shower of a holiday let, you could be liable if you have done nothing to manage the risk. Antislipguys Costa Blanca can apply an invisible anti-slip treatment to existing tiles, making them safer and fulfilling your obligations as both owners and agents. It is not expensive and we will supply you with documents to prove the date of application by our company, along with our 5 year product guarantee. This amazing treatment will not change the appearance of the tiles and can be walked on immediately. It's ideal for all inside and outside areas, like terraces and swimming pools, kitchen and bathroom floors and even the inside of baths and shower trays.
Apart from legal obligations it is important to protect yourself and your family against slipping in your own home (bathroom floors, swimming pool area, steps etc.).
