You probably have no issues staying on top of your regular home cleaning, but there are some home maintenance and cleaning tasks that might be better left to professionals. Some of these jobs might require special equipment that you do not own, and many of these tasks could put your safety at risk.
What are the Dangers?
It is understandable if you want to do most of the work around your home on your own, but you might not fully appreciate the dangers that can come with tasks like pressure washing and hanging Christmas lights. Before you take any chances, you might want to consider the potential risk of these household chores.
A pressure washer can be great for a range of outdoor cleaning tasks. They can save you time, and remove dirt and stains that would otherwise take hours of scrubbing. What many people do not realize is that these machines have the potential to not only damage your property when they are used incorrectly, but they can also cause severe injuries.
Even with the wider settings, the water from a pressure washer is coming out under extreme force. Thousands of people suffer injuries related to pressure washer use every year, and some of these injuries can take a long time to heal. Under enough pressure, water can easily cut through skin, it can go right through a shoe, and it can leave bruises and lacerations.
Decorating your home for Christmas can be fun; but it can also be dangerous. Every holiday season, thousands of people go to the ER for injuries that they suffered while hanging Christmas lights. People fall from the roof, ladders tip over, and you have injuries like back strains that are related to carrying heavy boxes of decorations.
You also can’t forget the risks that come with improper installation and faulty lighting. Christmas lights can cause house fires that can damage the home and add to the danger of decorating for the holidays.
Regardless of the type of roof that you have, it should get a cleaning once a year. An annual cleaning will help to extend the life of your roof, but it is a chore that comes with a significant amount of risk.
First, you have to get on the roof. You may not have a ladder that is the right length, and even if you do, just climbing up there can be dangerous. Then, you have the dangers that can come with walking around on the roof to clean different areas. All it takes is one simple misstep and you could find that you are on your way to the hospital before you even know what happened.
Your gutters are important for protecting the home from different types of water damage. For the gutters to do their job, they need to be cleaned and properly maintained. If you are going to do this task, that means climbing a ladder and working on the gutters when you are at the top.
For an inexperienced person, this can be a real danger. A poorly positioned ladder can easily tip over, or you might make the mistake of trying to reach too far from the ladder in order to save some time. A fall from that height could easily result in broken bones.
