House Covered in Snow & Ice? 5 Tips to Help You Safely Remove Icicles & Snow From Your Roof!

If you have a lot of ice and snow on your house, you may be tempted to remove it. But be careful. Here are four things to keep in mind!

  • When removing ice and snow, safety glasses and hardhats are often overlooked, but may be a wise investment to prevent injury.
  • Lightly tap icicles with a long-handled shovel to gently dislodge them, rather than giving a forceful whack.
  • Make sure people and pets are clear of the area.
  • No one should be on a snow-covered roof unless you are a professional specially equipped and trained to handle the dangers. Paying a service provider may be a wise investment rather than risking your safety!
