Victoria is one of B.C’s most visited tourist spots and Victoria Snow Clearing and salting is here to ensure a safe winter visit.
There are nearly 400,000 small businesses in B.C, 17.7% of which are spread out through Victoria and the Island. With over 66,000 commercial properties and an average snow and rainfall of nearly 30 inches – that is a lot of manual labour! Never fear, you can rely on our Gorillas for all of your Victoria Snow Clearing and Salting needs.
The historic value of Victoria can be found all over, even in the cobbled streets of Chinatown are on display. Although beautiful, the smooth surfaces of cobbled stones become extremely slippery when wet and the grooves hold on to moisture, freezing in colder temperatures. In addition to the clearing and salting needed for single-family homes, property managers need no longer worry themselves over the many properties that need maintenance. As a property manager or landlord, you have the responsibility of ensuring safety for your clients and tenants. This can be a lot of work for one person to maintain, as these outdoor spaces add up. Victoria Snow Clearing and Salting does the planning for you! Our Gorillas watch the forecasts for impending storms and weather changes, letting us combat the snow, so you don’t have to!
Victoria Snow Clearing and Salting work during the early and late hours of the night, remaining discrete as to not wake our clients or their neighbours. All snow is cleared away using blowers or shovels for a thorough clearing, no matter the time.
Victoria may not be known for large snowstorms but they have been known to happen. The “Big Snow” took place in February, 1916 with a storm that left 46.4 inches of snow over the course of several days. The city, as residents knew it, stopped all together, transit was at a standstill, stores stood empty and schools, courts and public offices were closed. This period in Victoria’s history stood for nearly 80 years as the largest snowfall up until December 1996 when 65 centimetres fell in one day.
