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!
Let's be safe this winter!
