Ways To Prevent Injuries When Spring Cleaning Your Home

Plenty of people are in the midst of spring cleaning their homes. Will you be spring cleaning your home this weekend? If so, be careful when doing so! Below are some tips that will help you prevent injuries when you are cleaning the house.

  • You don’t have to get all of your spring cleaning done at once! Be sure to take breaks and stay hydrated.
  • Don’t try to move heavy furniture all by yourself. It may require two or more people.
  • Getting on your hands and knees to clean the floor is not ideal. Instead, use a mop to clean the floor.
  • Stand on a secure ladder when cleaning high windows.
  • When pulling weeds in the garden, use your legs and abdominal muscles.
  • Bend your knees and use the strength in your legs when lifting heavy objects.
  • Vacuuming can take its toll on your neck. To avoid this, push the vacuum with both hands.

We hope that these tips help keep you safe. If you have been injured, turn to the experienced personal injury lawyers of Levine and Wiss, PLLC. Call toll free at 1.888.GOT.HURT (468-4878) to schedule a free initial consultation.
