Snow and Ice Preparedness

Most people are “out of sight, out of mind” when it comes to snow. This mindset might be acceptable for home or other personal settings, but as a business owner, it’s imperative to start planning for snow removal services now. Don’t get buried in snow due to a lack of planning.

By pre-planning for early winter snowfall, your business won’t get shut down or experience operation delays due to a large dump of snow. Blizzards, colossal storms, and bomb cyclones have wreaked havoc on many states throughout America. There have been weather disasters even meteorologists couldn’t predict. Snow removal, including plowing, salting, and de-icing, can make or break your brick-and-mortar business.

According to the CDC, millions of people sustain injuries from falls yearly. Hazards such as ice and snow contribute to this statistic. Don’t let snow and ice become a hazard to you, your employees, or your customers. If a massive storm blows through your business and leaves a great deal of snow behind it, will you be prepared? Part of a storm preparedness plan is to secure a contract with a reliable snow removal services company.

Professional snow removal businesses are well-equipped to handle ice and snow in any accumulation, thanks to heavy equipment and experienced contractors. Grounds management companies are always prepared to cover – or uncover – more ground.

As the winter season approaches, commercial snow removal companies gain an influx of customers. Start planning today to ensure your business driveways, sidewalks, and more are free from snow and ice.

Four Reasons to Hire Professional Snow Removal Experts

Snow accumulation can swiftly impede business operations, thereby hindering its success. Professional snow removal is vital to keep customers visiting your business and maintain a welcoming aesthetic. Read on to learn more reasons why professional snow removal shouldn’t be overlooked.

  1. Reduces expenses: Don’t waste your precious time – or energy – attempting to remove snow accumulation solo. Without expensive, heavy, and large equipment such as snow blowers, shovels, salt, or even a snowplow, removing snow on your own can be messy, time-consuming, and challenging.
  • Minimize injuries: Unfortunately, it’s common to hear about someone slipping on snow and ice during the winter. Millions of people fall yearly due to unsalted or un-cared-for pathways. Injuries are vast and include spinal fractures, strains, sprains, concussions, back pain, and more.
  • Liability: An unsafe environment for customers and employees can result in detrimental liability you might not be prepared for. Regular snow removal ensures you’re off the hook when it comes to liability. If there are no slip-and-fall accidents on your premises, you will be saved from costly expenses such as victim’s medical bills, lost wages, etc.
  • Employee access: If snow accumulates and employees cannot safely access the building, would your business survive? Professional snow removal can minimize lost time and provide an accessible way for your employees to enter your business. Don’t compromise your employees’ productivity by letting snow and ice accumulate on your property.

Protecting Trees and Shrubs for Winter

Trees and shrubs can be particularly susceptible to cold weather. It’s essential to keep them healthy; beyond trimming, it’s critical to keep them protected during the winter months. 

Pruning
Trees and shrubs should be trimmed regularly, especially prior to winter storms. Snow and ice accumulation stress branches by adding extra weight. Limbs that are already large or heavy can also be removed. Rather than guess which branches need to be trimmed, hire a professional to prune your plants so they will withstand the weather.

Wrapping
While it might look silly to have burlap over trees, the protection goes a long way toward protecting them from frigid temps. Think of it as a winter coat for a human. Some trees have thinner bark than others and are unable to tolerate chilly weather. Some trees require plastic, others burlap, but either way, the “tent” protects them from the winter wind.

Sprays
Transpiration can occur in trees when moisture evaporates from leaves. During warmer months, this phenomenon is not a huge deal, as the plants utilize groundwater. However, the frozen ground makes it nearly impossible for water to flow through the tree in the winter. The best solution for this issue is to spray leaves with anti-desiccants. These sprays coat the green areas with a particular chemical that helps keep moisture inside. By holding in humidity, the plant won’t succumb to damage from extreme temperatures. 

Your landscape still needs attention during the colder months. Ensure your plants are protected from frigid temperatures before they get damaged.
