Winter weather in the midwest is unpredictable at best. One day, we may have sunny skies and mild temperatures, and the next, we wake up to a foot of snow on the ground. The best anyone in the midwest can do is to be as prepared as possible, and try to stay ahead of the ever-changing weather. On that note, your friends at Greenworks Lawn Care are sharing our top three favorite ways to prepare for winter. So even if you don’t know what the weather may bring, you’ll be ready.
1. Buy Supplies Early
Well before the first snow of the year, you should start getting prepared. Go ahead and head to the store now and pick up some ice-melt for your sidewalk and driveway so you won’t find yourself running to grab the last bag on the shelf when it snows. Just make sure you use the product correctly, as it can cause damage to your yard or house if used incorrectly. Carefully read the instructions on the bag and remember, less is more. Also, make sure you have a quality shovel and ice scraper ready to go.
2. Keep a Mop by the Door
Unfortunately, many homeowners make the mistake of thinking they are safe from falls once they have made it into their homes. However, falls can still happen inside the home from wet floors caused by tracked-in snow or rain. The best way to avoid slipping and falling on wet, slippery floors is by keeping a dry mop by the door to soak up any moisture being tracked in. You can quickly mop up the water, snow, or dampness, and avoid falling.
3. Bring in the Pros
Because Indiana winters are so unpredictable, there’s always a good chance you’ll wake up one morning and have to frantically dig out your car to get to work on time. To avoid that frustrating experience, why not hire a crew ahead of time who will start to work as soon as the snow falls? When you hire Greenworks to handle your snow removal, you also get de-icing and ice removal, leaving your property safe and accessible, all without you lifting a finger.
