With winter storm Gail recently hitting the U.S. and other storms sure to follow, Delaware homeowners must make sure that their properties are ready for the snow, ice, wind, and rain that Mother Nature has to offer. Neglected piles of snow and sheets of ice can present significant safety hazards for homeowners, children, and passersby. Snow removal services, gutter cleaning, and other maintenance services can help homeowners keep their properties safe and undamaged, no matter how much snow we get this year. Follow these four tips and contact the team at Paul’s Lawn Service for snow removal services to minimize safety hazards on your Delaware property.
Prevent Ice Buildup on Your Roof, Sidewalks, and Gutters
Ice is one of the most significant safety risks that property owners face in the winter. Not only can icy sidewalks and stairs create the perfect conditions for a slip-and-fall injury, but ice accumulation can cause damage to various materials and structures. Prevent ice buildup on your roof and gutters by having your gutters cleaned and repaired. Avoid ice accumulation on sidewalks, patios, stairs, and driveways by using deicers and having snow removed promptly.
Clear Your Property With Professional Snow Removal Services
One of the best ways to keep ice at bay is to enlist the help of a professional snow removal team. With Delaware’s unpredictable weather, snow can fall, thaw, and refreeze, creating large sheets of ice. Have your property cleared by a team of professionals in a timely manner to reduce the risk of accidents and keep your property accessible.
Keep Walkways, Trees, and Other Landscape Features Well-Maintained
Is your landscape stable and ready for the harsh conditions that can occur during severe storms? Precarious tree branches, unhealthy trees, cracked or crooked sidewalks, and other maintenance concerns can become hazardous after a rain or snowstorm. Make sure to have a team of landscaping professionals trim your trees regularly, prune bushes as needed, and attend to any hardscape, landscape, or paving issues before any storms.
Keep Entryway Floors Dry and Store Shoes Properly
Your risk of slip-and-fall accidents doesn’t stop once you get inside. Keep a mop or absorbent floor mat on-hand to soak up any water or snow that you and your family members track in from outside. This is particularly important on hard flooring. Also, keeping shoes stored neatly and in a dry area is vital; unruly piles of wet shoes are easy to trip on, and your shoes may not dry properly.
