Across Delta, property managers and owners are always up against the elements. There are heavy rains in Fall, droughts in Summer but nothing is as troublesome as snow. New snow fall might be perfect for making snow angels but it can also bury pathways and create hurdles around your property. Whether on commercial properties or down residential streets, property owners are responsible for keeping passersby safe from slips, trips and falls. Don’t let winter weather get the best of you when you can call a Gorilla instead. Our Delta snow removal and salting services can clear a path on any property of any size.
What Winter Means For You
Snow removal services in Vancouver might only be necessary once or twice a year but the farther you travel out of the downtown core, the more difficult snow and ice management becomes. As properties become larger, it becomes more and more difficult to keep up with unpredictable weather patterns. In a hilly environment, even a drop in temperature can leave road surfaces and sidewalks slick. Just because the weather outside is frightful, doesn’t mean that your home or workspace must be uncomfortable.
Every day, property owners wake up, only to have to reach for a shovel to scrape sidewalks or dig out their vehicles. A bit of lifting might not be an issue for younger generations but senior citizens or those with physical limitations might have trouble keeping up. While shovelling seems like a simple enough task, there is more that goes into it than meets the eye. First, there is the risk of sprains and strains associated with the repeated motions of bending, scooping up snow and tossing it to the side. Even snow piles themselves can be problematic. Piling snow or letting it accumulate near vulnerable areas like foundations can mean water damage during Spring’s thawing season.
Managing heavy snowfall can be complicated, particularly around more complicated properties. For example, you might be able to clear away a single sidewalk, but what about commercial properties? Trying to tackle a parking lot with a basic shovel can mean hours – if not days! – of hard labour. The alternative of this is using power tools like snow blowers to treat larger spaces. These machines do mean quick results but they also mean a large up front cost, expenses for maintenance and storage, all combined with the time and effort that regular cleaning takes.
The Gorilla Guide to Snow Clearing
There is no question that the climate of British Columbia can be unpredictable. You might be dealing with green grass one day, only to wake up to a heavy blanket of white spread across your space. This means that homeowners can be stuck with a mess and left scrambling to find snow removal professionals to help them out. Instead of leaving our clients out in the cold, Gorilla experts have developed a system for keeping an eye on the skies. By monitoring incoming storm fronts and weather patterns, our team of specialists is ready for everything. Offering up snow removal and de-icing services on call-out and regularly scheduled basis’ means having the right tools to treat your space, like shovels, blowers or snow plows.
Snow might be the obvious sign of winter weather but just below the surface, ice is forming. Unfortunately for property owners, there is no such thing as an anti-ice coating for your sidewalks or driveways. Throwing down a fistful of salt is not enough to create the traction that you need to keep visitors on their feet. When our Gorillas arrive on scene for your salting needs, the first step toward a successful treatment is to inspect potential problem areas for any areas that snow melt might collect and re-freeze over night. By treating tricky areas before they become threats, you have a better chance of staying on your feet!
