While not the favorite chore for many, shoveling snow accumulating around homes is crucial. Failure to do so frequently risks the snow melting and seeping into the subfloor, which could lead to basement leaks and water damage to the foundation. In the face of such risks, keeping your home's perimeter clear of snow is best. Follow the snow shoveling tips below to perform this task safely and effectively.

Essential Snow Shoveling Tips

  1. The first step is to get the right shovel. Look for one specifically designed for snow shoveling, as using any other shovel could result in injury due to overexertion or improper posture. For such risks, opt for a shovel with a long handle and a wide, square mouth.
  2. Remember to warm up before shoveling. Remember, this maintenance task is an exercise where you must push, lift and throw relatively heavy loads of snow. Thus, warming up will help you avoid injury or muscle strain.
  3. The next step is to shovel snow in the correct posture. For that purpose, remember to keep your back straight when pushing the snow. Also, avoid lifting heavy loads and twisting your body when throwing it away.
  4. Avoid piling snow near your home's foundation, as this could damage outdoor faucets. Instead, collect it at least five feet away from your house.
  5. Next, remove snow from concrete roads to prevent these surfaces from becoming slippery. To do this, spread calcium chloride products on driveways and walkways.
  6. Finally, ask for professional help if you need to remove snow or ice slabs from your roof.
