Winter weather has a tendency to creep up. It might only feel like a matter of days between your last beach day and needing to scrape frost off your windshield. No matter how much you bundle when those temperatures drop, no one is ready for the year’s first heavy snow fall – and the same can be said for your property.
With sporadic cold snaps and large dumps of snow, it can feel impossible to keep on top of accumulation, but hiring a professional snow removal service can help. A surprise snow fall can mean calling in emergency services but scheduled care can help to keep high-traffic areas running smoothly.
Understanding Your Responsibilities
Local governments and city services might provide snow clearing services for public areas and communal property but privately owned spaces are responsible for keeping their own spaces clean. More so than only focusing on snow, ice needs to be taken care of as well.
Impassable walkways or slippery surfaces are subject to both by-laws and issues of liability. Some property owners will go their entire lives without violating a by-law but some are not as lucky. It can be easy to let things slip and without proper knowledge of the rules in your region, an accidental violation can occur, resulting in heavy fines and a whole lot of headache.
By-laws are in place in order to keep people safe. Wading through knee-high snow can lead to sprains, strains, general annoyance -and soaked shoes! In order to keep spaces safe and passable, regular removal needs to happen, as well as salting for those slippery areas.
