Slip and fall accidents are second only to car accidents in accidental death. Non slip floors can reduce those numbers.
The home itself offers many types of slip and fall hazards. Probably the number one concern in the home is the bathroom. Many bathrooms have ceramic tile floors or even marble, granite, or travertine tile floors. These floors are beautiful to look at and much easier to keep clean but they create a slippery situation when they get wet.
Porcelain bathtubs can be treated to make them slip resistant and there will be no visible difference in the bathtub.
The bathtub can be a hazard where thousands of accidents have happened.

Kitchens often have tile floors. These floors can easily get wet during the cooking or the cleanup process. Usually we see ceramic tile in the kitchen of a home. But some homes are using polished marble and polished porcelain as well.
The swimming pool deck is always wet and so it can be a source of accidents.
It would be a good idea to treat the pool deck if there is tile around the pool or even tile stairs into the pool. Sometimes the tile on the edge of the pool can lead to a slip and fall hazard.
The porch or the lanai can get wet when it is rainy outside and be very hazardous. The garage is an area of concern as well.
