Is your summer project an accident waiting to happen?

It seems like there is no end to the projects that come along with owning a home. When there’s nothing to fix, there are parts of the property that you want to improve.

With the snow and ice of winter long gone and long summer days ahead, it is a great time to work on summer repair projects, especially those outside. Before you get out your tools and start working on your list, it is essential to check your machines for safety recalls that could impact how you use your tools.

Here’s what you should watch for before you get your power tools out for summer projects.

Check online for recalls

One of the simplest steps you can take to check your safety tools is to look online for recalls. The tool manufacturer should have listings on their website of issues that have come up since the tool was released to the market.

Also, you can check retail sites, like Home Depot and Amazon for reviews and issues that other users have had with the tool. While some reports are one-time issues, the review could have information you could use so that you know what to watch for.

Check for damage

When tools sit over the winter, some internal fluids can leak and damage the inner workings. If problems go unnoticed, your tool can malfunction while you are working on an otherwise-safe project.

Before you start using a tool that has gone without use, check the fluids and look over the tool for evidence of corrosion. Watch for small flaws, since those can be evidence that there is more extensive damage internally.
