How to Stay Safe While Performing Home Repairs

Performing repairs around the home can give homeowners a great sense of accomplishment, and it can help you save on the expense of hiring a contractor. The problem is, most homeowners don’t have the proper training and equipment, so they risk injuring themselves on the job. Handyman Connection of McKinney, your trusted general contractor, shares some tips to help you

Ladder Injuries

In 2013, about 175,000 Americans were injured on ladders, some of them with injuries severe enough to require a hospital visit. These problems are easily avoided by choosing the right ladder size for the job. You should also make sure that your ladder has the proper support before climbing it, otherwise, you could injure yourself simply by changing a light bulb.

Electrical Accidents

One of the main causes of injuries around the house are electrical accidents. These problems can range from minor electric shocks to massive jolts. To avoid these accidents, make sure that you turn off the main source of power before performing any electrical work. You can also wear protective gear like gloves and eyewear to shield yourself from potential injuries.

Sharp Tools

When you work with sharp objects, especially without the necessary training, you risk cutting yourself. Saws, knives, and power drills are some of the most common culprits. That said, there’s no reason you shouldn’t handle the repairs yourself. Since distraction leads to injuries, it’s best to stay focused on the task at hand by using only one tool at a time.

Awareness and caution are keys to avoiding home repair injuries. Alternatively, you can turn to a professional like Handyman Connection of McKinney for quality repairs.
