Here Are A Few Safety Tips To Prepare
Salt before it snows
While most homeowners salt their driveways and walkways after they’ve cleared away the snow, its actually much more effective to use salt and de-icing products BEFORE the snow begins to fall.
Lay Tarps In Key Areas
Make It easy to clean up snow in key areas quickly by putting down drop cloths or plastic tarps before the snow starts to fall.
Utilize Your Backpack Blower for Light Snow
Just because all the leaves are gone, it doesn’t mean you should put the leaf blower away for the seasons. This is the perfect too to move light, fluffy snow in a jiffy!
Don't let Snow Build-Up Too Much
It is much easier to remove snow a little at a time than wait until the storm passes to get started. The more snow that falls, the heavier it gets, and the greater the possibility that the snow will stick to the ground, making it much more difficult to remove later.
Stake Your Driveway and Sidewalk Ahead Of Time
Expecting more than a foot of snow in your ware…. create yourself an outline around your driveway and sidewalk with tall stakes. This will make it easier to know where to start your snow removal efforts.
Roof Rakes Are A Life Saver
Heavy snow can wreak havoc on your roof. Excess weight can damage the structure of your roof, causing cracks and even eventual collapse. When snow melts and re-freezes, it creates ice dams that harm your gutters and cause more damage. That is why it is so important to remove heavy snow from your roof as you can. Call Us We can help!
Pam Your Shovel
Shoveling snow is hard enough, but when wet, heavy snow sticks to the shovel, it can make the job seem ten times harder. One way to prevent snow from sticking to your shovel is to spray your shovel with PAM Cooking Spray before heading out of your house! The cooking spray creates a slippery barrier between the snow and your shovel, making it much easier to release the snow where you want it!
Invest In A Snowblower
If you are able to do so, we recommend it!
Practice Healthy and Safe Habits
Shoveling snow is not easy. Be sure to bend your knees and lift with your legs, keeping the shovel blade as close to your body as possible. Avoid twisting motions that can put a lot of strain on your back. Instead, try to turn your whole body when dumping snow. When shoveling more than a few inches of snowfall, don’t try to dig all the way to the ground on your first pass. Shovel a few inches at a time to keep the weight manageable. Give each side of your body a rest by alternating from right to left-handed shoveling. You can also change your grip from underhand to overhand to limit fatigue and prevent sore muscles.
