It may not feel like spring time but it definitely is upon us and with that comes many issues that can arise.  From all the trees and flowers blooming, getting your yard in order, and many other things that are done preparing for the nicer weather, things will happen.  While there is no way to prevent these things from happening there are some things you can do make sure you are having a happy and safe spring!

  • Do not overdo it! The nice weather will make you want to get everything done all at once, you have plenty of time so pace yourself and take plenty of breaks. Remember, you do not have to get it all done in a day!
  • Allergies are just a common occurrence this time of year. Make sure you contact your doctor if your symptoms become overwhelming for treatment options.
  • If you do strain yourself during outdoor work, use ice, heat and rest but do call if you need further treatment.
  • Ladders can be very dangerous, use extreme caution while using them and having a partner to help is not a bad idea! The elderly should avoid ladders!
  • This is a great time to get out and start walking which is great exercise. It’s been a long winter and is now time to get out there and get in shape!
  • Also having an emergency kit with food and water for 72 hours, batteries and a battery operated radio for power outages and a first aid kit is always good to have on hand with the unpredictable weather this time of year.

Always remember to be safe, but enjoy the spring time weather, it only arrives once a year! Despite some issues that come with it, we are here to help in any way we can, if you have any questions feel free to give us a call!

Have a safe and happy spring!
