How to Clear Snow and Ice the Safe and Easy Way

1/21/2018 5:17 PM Comments Posted By Floralyn Teodoro
Countless news reports warn people of an ice storm and snow flooding in different parts of the United States. Are you ready?

With Winter Storm Hunter on its way, expect the coming of massive blizzards that can storm the country with snow, sleet, and ice. According to the Weather Channel, Hunter will bring an ice storm, massive winds, blizzards, and freezing rain all over the U.S.

So, when Hunter weakens and leaves the outside of your home covered with snow and ice, below are some of the easiest and safest ways you can try to clear them.

Safe Shoveling

Some people are hesitant to clear snow and ice outside their homes, especially in the UK, with the fear that they’ll be held responsible and sued in case someone accidentally slips and falls. Because of that, their government has issued advice on clearing snow and ice, which they refer to as the “Snow Code.” We all can surely learn a thing or two from it.

  • First, don’t let the fear of someone getting injured get in your way. People walking on snow and ice should be responsible for themselves and be careful.
  • Clear snow and ice early in the day when they’re fresh, loose, and easier to move.
  • Avoid using water to clear snow and ice as it may refreeze and turn into an ice block.
  • Use salt to melt snow and ice overnight and prevent them from refreezing.
  • Use sand or ash. Although these two might not be as effective as salt, these will provide good grip underfoot.
  • Don’t do something that may cause snow and ice to refreeze. Doing such will only make the pathways outside your home more dangerous.

Shoveling Tips

Besides considering others’ safety when clearing out snow and ice outside your home, it’s your responsibility to consider your safety too when doing shoveling tasks. With that, here are some of the many shoveling safety tips from the National Safety Council:

  • Listen to your body and pay attention to how your body feels when shoveling. Feel free to take breaks when you need to. Do not force yourself to work to the point of exhaustion.
  • Practice proper posture. Lift with your legs, and never with your back. Stretching out before shoveling is also recommended to prevent strains and other similar injuries.
  • If you have heart disease or if you feel tightness in your chest when shoveling, stop it immediately. Do not perform shoveling tasks unless a doctor permits you to do so.
  • Do not consume a heavy meal before or after shoveling to prevent putting a heavy load on your heart.
  • Dress properly for the cold weather outside. Clothe yourself in layers, including a scarf, hat, coat, gloves, socks, and water-resistant footwear.
  • If you are an elderly or someone with a disability, you can ask for your community’s resident snow team to do the shoveling for you.

Snow Blowers

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), almost 600 people undergo finger amputations each year due to improper operation of snow blowers. So, if you’re considering the use of snow blowers, see below safety tips from the CPSC, American Society for Surgery of the Hand, and the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons:

  • Never use your bare hands to unclog a snow blower of wet snow or debris. Stop the engine first and use a long stick instead.
  • Always keep your hands and feet away from a snow blower’s moving parts.
  • When refueling your snow blower, make sure it’s not hot nor running. Never refuel when the machine is turned on and running.
  • Be wary of the carbon monoxide poisoning risk of operating a snow blower in an enclosed space.
  • Only use the snow blower when you’re in the right mind. Do not use it when you’re under the influence of alcohol.
  • Lastly, if your snow blower jams, immediately turn it off.

Safety is as simple as ABC, “Always be careful,” – reminds one of the memorable quotes from The Simpsons movie. Here at Home Buys Plus, we wish you safety before, during, and after the winter storms.
