Winter is over. No more whiteouts. No black ice. No snow squalls.
But summer weather brings its own dangers. Routines can change and may have unintended complications you did not anticipate. You have to run into the store for 5 minutes, dry cleaning needs to be picked up or any number of other things. And while it’s nice to have company during your daily tasks, it might be in your pet or child’s best interest to leave them at home or wait until alternative plans can be made.
On a day that is just 22°, the temperature inside a car can increase by 20 to 30 degrees in an hour, and 70% of this increase occurs in the first 30 minutes. In less than an hour, car temperatures can reach up to 55 degrees on a 25 degree day.
If you see a child alone in a vehicle call 911 immediately; the same goes for pets. Always make arrangements if you have to go somewhere that the kids/pets cannot come with you, and try not to scowl or shake your head at the person sheepishly trotting around the local DIY store with Chihuahua in tow – it doesn’t necessarily mean they couldn’t bear to be parted from little Sparky.
As a rule, on extremely hot days it’s recommended that you stay indoors, somewhere air-conditioned if possible. If your AC is in need of maintenance, an upgrade, or you’ve lived without it for long enough; give us a call. Homeservice Club contractors are waiting to make your summer safer and more comfortable than ever before.
