There is so much to love when it’s winter season:
The smell of Christmas in the air, fuzzy socks, hot cocoa, cozy fires, and of course, snow. Everything around you is covered in this pristine white color that makes your surroundings look magical.
The only thing that makes winter not so inviting is the fact that we have to shovel out snow-covered driveway, porch, sidewalks, roofs and the surrounding area of our house quite often. Shoveling snow is grueling work but is an essential winter chore that needs to be done if we want our family members safe from slips and falls and have our homes protected from snow and ice damage.
But how often should you shovel during the winter? Is there a certain schedule you have to follow? Some tricks and tips maybe to make this exhausting task a little bit easier and more manageable?
There is no perfect routine when it comes to shoveling snow. Each homeowner has his or her say when it comes to this. But one important tip is to not let the snow build up. It would be easier to shovel 5 inches of snow twice than to shovel 10 inches once. Hence, snow shoveling should be done as often as needed to avoid buildup of snow.
Shoveling of snow at regular intervals during heavy snowfall is also recommended to make it more manageable since snow can get quite heavy. This also prevents the bottom layer of snow from turning into ice making it slippery.
Homeowners are responsible for their snow removal by either doing it themselves or hiring someone to do it. There are important points to remember when shoveling snow in different places of our properties. Take the driveway for example; one’s driveway should be clear enough during the winter that cars, especially emergency vehicles should be able to get in and out without hassle. Sidewalks should also be cleared in a way that a person or a wheelchair can pass by safely. You also have to keep an eye on the pathway going to your mailbox. A homeowner has to make sure that it has an accessible path that is completely safe for the mail carrier when he delivers mail.
