Remember these tips and you will have a safe, happy and accident free Spring.

It’s finally getting nice, and time to get outside to
clean up and start the lawn work.  Here are a few reminders to help keep you safe.

Wear appropriate protective clothing:

  • Don’t wear anything loose that could get caught in equipment
  • Wear long pants
  • Choose appropriate footwear, usually boots or heavy shoes
  • Wear headphones or earplugs to protect your hearing
  • Wear goggles or safety glasses to protect against flying debris
  • Wear gloves as needed
  • When getting equipment out in the spring, review the instructions and safety warnings to refresh yourself on
  • proper usage.  Be sure your extension cords are in good condition and appropriate for outdoor use.

When mowing, pick up the yard first.  Stones and other items can become dangerous projectiles.  But if you would rather enjoy Spring by
relaxing, contact Home Services Link .  We will arrange
lawn service for the entire season

Keep your children safe.  Don’t leave equipment or tools in the yard. Keep children (and pets) away from power equipment and lawn mowers
(don’t let them ride with you on a lawn tractor either).

Work from the ground when possible.  Use extension rods to clean gutters and a pressure sprayer for cleaning siding and windows.  When
using a ladder, have someone around to hold the ladder and help with supplies and equipment.  We have
service providers for all your Spring
clean-up needs.
