The heat may be intense and the sun may be blazing, but that doesn't mean you can simply stop providing the summer maintenance your home needs (e.g. gardening, waterproofing the roof, etc.). What it does mean, however, is that you need to take extra steps to ensure you're being safe while you're spending time outside. For a few tips on how to work outdoors safely during the summer months, read on.

How to Provide Outdoor Maintenance During the Summer

  1. First of all, stay hydrated. If you'll be working outside, you will be sweating a lot, which means your body will need water to make up for its lost liquid. Keep water near you while you work, so you can sip on it regularly.
  2. Choose the right time to work to be safe. Earlier in the morning or later in the evening are best, since the sun and heat won't be as strong. Check the weather forecast for deterrents (e.g. heat waves, rainfall, or other bad weather condition).
  3. Wearing appropriate clothing can also be a game-changer: opt for old clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. Make sure these will provide protection from the sun and will keep you fresh while you work.
  4. Developing skin cancer is one of the biggest risks of working outside. To prevent that situation, stay protected from the sun: apply sunscreen, use sunglasses, wear long sleeves, and don hats and gloves to keep your body shielded.
  5. It's also necessary that you take breaks from time to time. Working in smaller segments and seeking shelter from the extreme sunshine will help you prevent some of the ailments that can be caused by being outside during the high temperatures.
  6. If needed, ask for help from family, friends, neighbors, etc., to finish your summer maintenance projects. This will make the tasks go by quicker in a safer, more efficient, and much more enjoyable way.
  7. As a final tip, remember to always pay attention to your body. If while you're working, you feel nauseous, extremely hot, or fatigued, stop, rest, and drink water, as these could be signs of dehydration and heat stroke. If necessary, visit a doctor to get a check-up.
