Though the snow may look pretty, as a homeowner it is often a pain to deal with. Use these tips to quickly and easily tackle the snow this winter!
Choosing the correct clothing when shoveling snow is vital to the efficiency of your work. Its common sense to wear warm clothing, but you’re bound to sweat while shoveling. That’s why you should opt for materials that will help you wick moisture away while still keeping you warm.
SLOW AND STEADY
You may want to just plow through the snow, but shoveling is hard work. If you go too fast you might hurt yourself. Take care of your body by taking breaks throughout the process and not trying to get too much snow on your shovel.
Shoveling can often be a project that is left to the last minute – like when you are leaving for work. Don’t let this happen. Plan ahead when you know there will be snow and give yourself plenty of time to clear a path. You don’t want to throw out your back before making it into the office because you overdo it shoveling.
INVEST IN YOUR TOOLS
Living in Indiana means you can expect at least a few heavy snowfalls each year. Instead of buying a cheap shovel when you get your first home, invest in good supplies like a good quality shovel or even a snow blower, that will last you for years.
