Summer Health Tips

Summer, the time for fun in the sun and much-needed vacations, unfortunately presents threats to our environment. While Reilly Sweeping works hard to improve the environment not only during the summer, but year-round, we would like to make you aware of the complications that these weather conditions, although relaxing, can bring. Our variety of summertime cleaning services, not limited to the summer, keep locations clean after events and activities sweep the streets.

At Reilly Sweeping, our expert cleaning professionals have come up with some summer health tips for you to keep in mind even as the summer is soon coming to a close. You can always do your part to improve the environment. We of course hope you are having a fun-filled and eco-friendly summer so far!

Recycling - Summer Health TipsRecycle, recycle, recycle!

Recycling can largely benefit your community and of course, the overall environment. It reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators, conserves natural resources, prevents pollution, and saves energy.

Start Walking - Summer Health TipsCommit to a different form of transportation

While it’s so convenient to hop in your car and head off to work, consider an alternative form of transportation, such as a bus, train, bike, or even walking, if possible. This little difference in your routine can reduce carbon dioxide emissions, furthering improving the environment.

Refuel - Summer Health TipsRefuel your vehicle

When you do need to take your car, be sure to secure the gas cap after refueling your vehicle to prevent vapors from escaping. While gasoline vapor production increases during the hot summer months, they are toxic to breathe, making them harmful to both you and the environment.

Conserve Water - Summer Health TipsConserve and protect our waters

While Reilly Sweeping works to combat storm water runoff, it’s important to do your part for our water resources during the warmer months. This means using water wisely in your home and when spending time on the water, being mindful of pollutants. We are proud to partner with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation in the effort to fight pollution from degrading the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers and streams.

Of course, it’s also important to protect yourself from the sun by periodically applying sunscreen and cleaning up after yourself, making sure that no garbage is left out in the harsh heat to fester and pollute the air.

Before going out and enjoying your summer days before they pass you by, keep these important tips in mind. You’ll not only improve the quality of our environment, but you’ll also promote a healthier and happier lifestyle. Either way, Reilly Sweeping is always here to take on any mess and restore areas in order to improve the environment, further creating safe places to enjoy all the fun that summer can bring.
