If you own property in the Carmel area, now is the time to review your storm management plan. Unfortunately, many don’t think about their plan for snow and ice removal until a big winter storm hits, and, unfortunately, they are left scrambling to ensure their property is safe. At Greenworks Lawn Care, we clear everything from driveways to parking lots, and today we are encouraging you to take a close look at your strategy for handling upcoming winter storms.
Hire Professional Snow Removal
Step one on your snow management plan should be hiring a snow removal company to handle the otherwise backbreaking work of removing snow from your property. This is especially true if you have a large parking lot with high traffic. Snow and ice can be a huge liability to the people who drive and walk on your property, so identifying those areas and potential safety hazards is a great place to start. After a snowfall, it is crucial to remove snow and ice from the parking spaces, carports, and walkways to ensure that customers, employees, and others can access the area safely.
Consider Salt Usage
In order to remove snow and ice from walkways, driveways, sidewalks, and other surfaces, salt is the material of choice. It is extremely effective at melting snow and ice because it lowers the temperature. As a result, walking and driving are significantly safer. Because of this, it’s crucial to have plenty of salt on hand or a contract with a company that uses salt to keep your property safe.
Winterize Your Buildings
Finally, once you have a plan in place for snow and ice removal, you need to make sure your home or commercial building can withstand anything winter throws at it. Perform a basic maintenance check around your building and determine how it will endure a big winter storm. Take special care of your pipes, the roof, and your emergency heating system to ensure all are operational and ready for freezing temperatures and harsh weather.
