The very first priority is sidewalk management along with road snow plowing. These services, which consist of removing build-up that may occur during the day or overnight, are crucial for maintaining your outdoor surfaces clear of snow.
Unplowed parking lots and roads produce the risk of cars sliding and slamming into one another, potentially causing injuries to pedestrians and others. However, a snow removal professional with the proper snow plow, can make quick, easy work of any ground snow and will then continue with snow removal services and lay sand or salt for added grip.
Snow Hauling or Snow Removal
Typically, a commercial snow plow service will also provide snow hauling or snow removal services. This is step two in emptying your property of snow, removing the snow piles that have been created during the snow plowing process.
If you do not have anywhere on your property where you can store a snow pile safely, or if there is just way too much snow, a snow removal company will be capable of hauling and removing this snow from your property altogether. This is an excellent manner in which to reduce or eliminate the ice build-up that is created by the meltwater frequently produced by snow piles.
Emergency Snow Removal
Although regular snow removal is essential and generally assists you in staying a step ahead of snow build-up on your property, Chicago winters can be unpredictable and you really have no idea when you may require an emergency snow removal service.
Good snow removal contractors are always monitoring the weather and should know when it is necessary to make preventative preparations as well as when to clear a sudden snow build-up from your property.
Emergencies can occur at any time of day or night and abrupt winter storms may drastically hurt your business as far as foot traffic or accidents if your property has not been cleared properly and quickly.
Snow & Ice Management
Snow and ice management is equally as important as snow removal. It may actually be more important.
This process entails the use of de-icing solutions, varying from traditional salt to numerous liquid de-icers, which lower water’s freezing point and prevent ice and snow build-up on your outdoor surfaces.
One of the most effective ways of maintaining your property safe for use is the anti-icing process, and there are numerous de-icing solutions from which you may choose. Certain solutions work better at distinct temperatures and these involve the various costs involved with each type – and a great commercial snow removal company assists you in pinpointing the ideal solution for your budget and your needs.
