Be Ready for the Winter with a Commercial Snow Removal Plan
NJ and NY building owners know just how trying the winter season can be. When a snowstorm hits, your employees or tenants shouldn’t have to worry about how they will access their building—and you shouldn’t stress about clearing the lot, sidewalks, or salting common areas. Instead, leave that job to the professionals with a commercial snow removal plan.
What Qualifies for Snow Removal?
While inclement weather can set the Tri-State area into a panic, it’s not always a cause for snow removal. Typically, it’s not necessary to plow an inch or less of snow, as some salt or liquid deicer will get the job done. Anything more than two inches will usually require plowing. However, if you’re unsure, it’s best to give your snow removal company a call.
The Best Time to Enlist Commercial Snow Removal Services
It’s best to contact a professional company as early in the season as possible to ensure your building can be serviced. Once scheduled, communicate your operating business hours and your expectations. Some customers want continuous snow removal throughout the duration of a snowfall, while others are fine with getting everything cleaned up once the snow has ceased. Make sure you and your provider are on the same page and are complying with all local laws and ordinances for your location. It’s also very important that all employees and customers can safely access the building with ease.
What is Included in Snow Removal Services?
While every company is different, you can generally expect snow plowing, deicing, sidewalk clearing, storm management and preparation, and snow hauling, stacking, or melting. Different types of equipment, a number of vehicles, and various snow removal products are also used. At Safety Facility Services, we can create a unique snow removal plan that fits your building’s location and satisfies its needs.
What Commercial Properties Can Benefit from Snow Removal?
Safety and accessibility should remain the number one priority during or after a snowstorm, regardless if your building remains open. Because of this, any commercial property can benefit from snow removal services. Office, residential, retail, education, healthcare, hospitality, and industrial buildings should have a snowstorm plan in place.
