Spring Cleaning Tips 2021

Here in the Lake Michigan lakeshore area we are getting forecasts of 60+ degrees as far as outdoor temperatures in the next 10 days. Winter is losing its battle and spring is about to be sprung. We found this article from the Air Force Safety Center with tips on being safe while getting your spring cleaning done:

  • Don’t Be in a Hurry. Spring cleaning can be especially tiring, so don’t be in a rush to get things done. Take frequent breaks and don’t attempt to tackle a task if you’re exhausted.
  • Use Your Legs, Not Your Back. Having the proper lifting posture (back straight, lifting with your legs) will reduce strain or potential injury to your back. Wear shoes to avoid injury, & if you cannot move it yourself or cannot find someone to move the item – just leave it. It would be safer to clean around it than hurt yourself (or others) attempting to move it.
  • Watch Out Above (and Below). Be safe while using a step stool or a ladder, making sure someone is there to hold the ladder or steady you on a step stool. A good rule for ladders is not to let your belly button go beyond the sides of the ladder.
  • Slippery When Wet. Take proper steps when it comes to cleaning floors, inform others of the wet floor(s) & put up barriers to keep young children and pets from the areas to avoid injury.
  • Empty That Bucket. When working with buckets of water, either empty the bucket or place it in an inaccessible area if you are going to take a break or walk away for a few minutes. Children can drown in only a few inches of water.

Be sure you check out the full article from the Air Force Safety Center for even more tips on how to be safe while spring cleaning!
