28 Powerful Home

Security Solutions

By  Damian Brindle

 

For unsuspecting homeowners seeing the aftermath for the first time can be a scary sight, and being subject to a home invasion is downright terrifying. Fortunately, there are dozens of actions that you can take to stay safe, knowledge that for most of us only comes after it's too late.

Above all, we may also want to seriously consider: 


SAFETY  FIRST

1. Since no one is a "natural" when it comes to Doing It Yourself, ALWAYS read instructions and pay attention to advice given along with them. 

2. When handling materials like wood, metal, or harmful chemicals ALWAYS wear gloves designed for handling them. For example, it may not be wise to handle muriatic acid with regular work gloves. Wear gloves which are approved for handling the kind of harsh chemicals we intend to use. 

3. Use the right tool for the job. For example, it may not be a good idea to use a butter knife in place of a screwdriver or a wrench to substitute for a hammer or a hammer in place of work requiring a mallet.

4. When using power tools such as chop saws, jigsaws,  "ripsaws," table saws, etc.. or hanging materials, you may want to wear safety glasses built and designed well enough to protect your eyes from "un-announced" flying particles of sawdust, splinters, and fragments of the material you are working with. Better to keep cleaning them than to risk something landing in your eyes or worse. Keep the lenses clean with professionally recommended hypoallergenic  solutions (fluids which are unlikely to cause harm to our eyes).

 


5. Outerwear. Wear the right clothing for the project. Avoid wearing anything loose which could get caught in a rotating blade. Also, pressure washing can be very messy, especially from the spray which often blows/splashes back or rains on us when spraying above. Expect to get wet. But we may want to dress so as to minimize that as much as possible - along with the effects of all the filthy water and airborne particles. We may want to wear good safely glasses as well.

6. Ladder Safety. Please be sober enough to do so safely. Use the right ladder for the job. Example: For most homes, a six-foot ladder is too short for projects entailing the upper exterior of the home. Best advice is for us to notice the ladders which MOST professional home service people use for upper exterior home projects. We may want to use those type.

Unfortunately, what MOST these home service people don't seem to do is TIE-DOWN their ladders to prevent them from suddenly sliding when they over-reach. Normally, a sliding unsecure ladder [not tied down], if not stopped in time, does not stop until about a second or two later -- on the ground.

7. When working overhead installing drywall, light fixtures, or otherwise working with anything above our heads, ALWAYS wear clean, professionally recommended safety glasses. If using a ladder, please be certain we are sober, it is sturdy, the ideal design, and the 'perfect' height for the project.

8. ALWAYS look for safety directions and other advice before using a power tool, materials, and other things we are not personally or professionally familiar with. Know the risks. Pay attention to WARNING labels. Please heed them.

BE  SAFE!
