When winter arrives, there’s nothing quite as picturesque as a blanket of freshly fallen snow. However, that serene scene can quickly turn into a homeowner’s nightmare if you’re unprepared for the task of removing that snow.
Shoveling snow is not only a strenuous activity but can also lead to injuries if not done correctly. To help you tackle the snow with confidence and safety in mind, here are some essential snow shoveling tips for homeowners:
Push the snow rather than lifting it whenever possible to reduce strain on your back. When lifting is necessary, bend your knees and lift with your legs rather than your back. Don’t forget to engage the core of your body to protect your back.
Shoveling snow in winter can be tough, but by being careful and using the right methods, you can keep your property safe and usable all winter long. For more tips on how to take care of your property while you are away, read our blog page
