Winter’s Coming!  Prepare For Snow and Ice Removal

Winter will shortly be upon us, and if the recent fall weather is any indication of what’s in store for us in the Northeast in the coming season, we better be prepared for some cold temperatures and a plan to deal with snow and ice removal.  Although we hopefully won’t experience a winter as extreme as the one we lived through last year, weather experts are predicting that this winter will still leave us grabbing our warmest gear and digging out more than a few times.

Anyone who owns or manages a commercial property understands just how imperative it is that any snow that falls be dealt with swiftly in order to keep business up and running as usual while also keeping people safe.  That’s why it’s important to make plans now for your snow and ice removal needs so you’ll have everything in place and ready to go as soon as those flakes start to fall.

Most commercial properties rely on outside companies to handle their plowing, sanding, salting and de-icing needs instead of doing it themselves.  This is because professional companies have the equipment needed to get the job done right.  It’s a lot easier to contract with a company or simply make a phone call when needed to get someone out to get rid of any snow or ice that’s on the ground, or better yet, to prepare roads, parking lots and walkways in advance as much as possible to handle the onslaught of winter.

No matter what Mother Nature may deliver to us this year, property owners and managers know that it has to be dealt with.  We can complain, stomp our feet or wish away the wintry mess that’s sure to arrive, but in the end, the only thing we have control over is how we handle that mess once it falls to the ground.  That means we need to shovel and plow, need to possibly spread sand and ice melting materials such as salt, and we need to ensure that any areas where people will be driving or walking are as safe as possible.

So, whether you feel more comfortable entering into an annual snow removal contract with a company you can rely on to simply show up when needed or you prefer to make the call yourself to arrange for snow removal services on an as-needed basis, it’s important that you give some thought now to who you can rely on to show up when needed or what company will be there to answer your call and quickly dispatch a crew to your location.  Companies like Millenium Stoneworks offer snow removal in Staten Island and New Jersey and can be relied on whenever you need us.
