A part of being Canadian is learning to live in the snow. From skiing to snow angels, winter weather has something for everyone, but it also means a lot of heavy lifting. Snow clearing might be a necessity but it doesn’t have to be a chore. With friendly Gorillas in your community, all it takes is one phone call to organize professional Chilliwack snow removal and salting services.

It is impossible to avoid snow accumulation but there are right and wrong ways to deal with it. A fistful of sand or salt and a quick shovel is not enough to keep pathways passable. Avoid slips and falls by choosing professional snow and ice control, from fully insured and highly trained technicians.

Understanding Your Environment

Every year, the town of Chilliwack sees 33 inches of snow – and that is just on average! Between dustings and heavy snow events, winter weather can block bus routes, create awful driving conditions and overwhelm parking lots. Government buildings like city hall might have access to in-house snow and ice removal, but property owners do not.

Trying to tackle snow fall all on your own might mean hours of muscle-straining labour, along with the risk of slips and falls. Property owners throughout Chilliwack come in all ages, meaning that some residents are not equipped with the necessary dexterity or physical ability to carry out their own winter operations.

In addition to manual labour, how snow and ice are handled has a big impact on your space. Simply piling shovelled snow next to structures can mean water damage, rot and flooding when temperatures warm and leads to melting. As temperatures fluctuate, this melt can also refreeze, creating dangerous ice patches.

Chilliwack Snow Removal Services: Creating a Safe Environment

Wet socks are inconvenient but these are not the worst parts of winter-time exposure. There isn’t much that you can do to prevent frostbite, but that does not mean that you are out of the woods. Whether you have a residential or commercial property, liability is always an issue.

Leaving ice to coat your walkways will inevitably lead to a slip or fall but it can also lead to costly fines. In addition to keeping your visitors or customers safe, property owners are also responsible for the welfare of civil servants, like mail carriers. Neglecting proper snow clearing and salting can lead to heavy by-law fines.

Having snow or ice on your property can affect your safety in more ways than one! Slips, falls, strains and sprains are all associated with removal, but they don’t have to be. By choosing outside help, you are taking the pressure off of yourself and your customers and clients. With a Gorilla in your corner, you can get back to the important things and leave the heavy lifting to us!
