summer risks to your house

While summer can be a great time to play in your backyard and enjoy some outdoor activities, it is also the time when you need to stay safe from storms and bugs.

Here are some of the common summer risks and ways to prevent them:

Dangerous Bugs and Caterpillars

When playing outside, children can get skin problems, including stinging, redness, burning, and itching if they are exposed to bugs and caterpillars.

Teach your kids to stay away from disease or infection-causing bugs or insects.

Pests can cause minor or major skin problems, depending on whether you are allergic to them. It is good to check for the signs of bugs around your home and use bug spray or organic pesticides to kill them.

Wire Grill Brushes

Metal bristles on your grill brushes are one of the typical summer backyard dangers.

The best prevention tip is to use a wooden scraper or a natural-bristle brush instead of a wire grill brush, as all the debris from such tools will burn away with the grill fire.

Tick Bites

During the warm summer months, ticks are seen in abundance and usually latch onto bare skin when you are in your backyard. Use insect repellent and low-intensity pesticide spray to prevent tick bites and Lyme disease.

Lawn Mower Injuries

While lawn mowing can be exciting in summer, it can also get disastrous if not done well. There is always a risk of limbs getting caught in the blades of the mower if you’re not careful.

To remain safe, it is best not to tinker with your lawnmower, and if you don’t know how to use a stump grinder, make sure to stay far away from it while it’s in use.

Follow these safety precautions to prevent summer risks. You can also ensure your loved ones’ safety by getting the right insurance policy. For assistance with all your insurance needs, contact the experts at The Schwab Agency in Colleyville, Texas. We will help you get the coverage you need.
