You may not beconstantly surrounded by noiseor work on a construction site where excessive noise levels are thenorm, butit’s still important to have appropriate hearing protection even around the home.
Many household chores may be doing you damage without you even realizingit. Think about how often you mow the lawn – that right there, is exposure to noise.
It’s not a bad idea to whack in a pair of ear plugs each time youneed to mow thelawn;the garden needs awhipper sniporyou need to fire up the leaf blower.Consider how loud your lawn equipment is before operating.
Do you love getting stuck into some DIY projects around the house? Then you definitely need to consider whether you’re protecting your ears. Ear plugs are necessary if you’re operating or around tools that create excessive noise, such as power tools or machinery.
Even things like generators, engines or fans that omit low frequency noise could possibly be doing damage. Low frequency noise waves are long and can carry great distances and even penetrate barriers, like hearing the bass of yourneighbours stereo.
So keep all of this in mind next time you head out for a spot of gardening and have your ear plugs handy around the home so you’re always protected.
