Snow Removal Tips

‘Tis the season! Although Christmas time invites a lot of fun and laughter for many people, it is also the time for snow. Snow can be a pain when trying to remove it from your cars before work, or when shovelling it off of your driveway. Luckily, you have these snow removal tips for the following season.

  1. If you’re expecting a lot of snow, shovel often so that you’re not having trouble shovelling a lot of heavy snow.
  2. Keep your phone with you when shovelling in case of an emergency.
  3. To clear ice from car windows pour lukewarm water over them. Use a wiper to then remove the runoff.
  4. Use rubbing alcohol to get rid of ice on windows. This will also help to defog them.
  5. Keep your car in your garage if you have one. If not, you can cover your vehicle with a tarp.
  6. Consider using snowmelt mats on the pathway to your front door to keep it free of slippery ice and snow.
  7. Get rid of snow by building snowmen with your family. This is a fun and easy way to not only get rid of snow but to also decorate your front yard!
  8. Use a good shovel. Shovelling snow with a bad shovel won’t help you get rid of snow efficiently, and you might even break your back in the process.
  9. If you live in a place that has a lot of snowfall (like Canada!), consider investing in a snowblower. This will make your job a little bit easier every Winter.
  10. Use a leaf blower to get rid of light, fluffy snow.
