Snow removal is a part of the Canadian experience, but that doesn’t mean that you have to like it! Hours of heavy lifting in the snow is no one’s idea of a good time, but neither does slipping, falling or struggling through buildup. Instead of suffering through winter weather, call a Gorilla for your Georgetown snow removal and salting services.

In Canada, weather conditions can change in the blink of an eye. You might spend the day outside skiing or making snow angels, only to find roads and sidewalks overwhelmed with snow and ice that evening. It is easy to delay shovelling in favour of spending time cozy indoors, but even a bit of neglect can lead to serious health hazards.

What Makes Winter Maintenance Services So Important

No matter the time of year, Canadian weather is unpredictable. From sunshine to rain storms to heavy snows and freezing temperature, property owners have to go through a wide spectrum of temperamental weather.

Snow clearing is a main component of any seasonal maintenance routine but there is more to it than just that. Residential snow removal is necessary to keep guests, residents and passersby safe while any commercial property has to account for foot traffic and customers. Passable walkways make it easier to get in the door but they can also help to avoid injury, fines and even lawsuits.

It is difficult to think that failing to clean away accumulation or salt slippery areas can end up costing money, but it does! In every city, there are by-laws in place designed to keep walkways safe and passable. Failing to scrape snow down to the concrete or not de-icing slippery areas can mean a heavy fine. In addition to this, a slip, fall or injury can result in a liability suit, ruining reputations and incurring high costs.

Addressing a Large Amount of Snow

Whether dealing with a dusting or a large dump, any amount of snow accumulation can be a problem. The majority of snow falls during late night and early morning hours. This makes it difficult to keep up with the climate. Property maintenance means more than a quick scraping here and there.

Depending on the size and scale of your space, property maintenance can stretch from sidewalks to driveways and even parking lots. While city organized clearing might limit street parking or limit the use of a sidewalk, plows like these don’t tackle private spaces. Without the right tools and technique to get the right results, owners and managers are left to fend for themselves.

Every day, Ontarians are admitted to the hospital for sprains, strains and even breaks as a result of heavy lifting and manual labour associated with snow removal. Instead of dealing with the damage, call a professional for your snow removal services.

Going Gorilla: The Snow Removal Company For You

There are plenty of companies out there, claiming to provide the best in winter care. Each of these differ in results, customer care and level of service. After years in the industry, our Gorillas guarantee service that reaches top tier care for commercial, multi-unit and residential properties.

Neglecting your outdoor care for just 12 hours after the initial snow fall can be enough to leave outdoor spaces spiralling. During the day, sunshine and warmer temperatures can melt snow, re-freezing overnight and turning sidewalks into skating rinks. Luckily, our Gorillas offer scheduled services and emergency call-outs, 24 hours a day.

Freezing temperatures can weaken materials outside. From burst pipes to delicate material and even leaking fire hydrants, ice can come from anywhere. Instead of just treating problem areas all at once, our experts assess outdoor spaces, addressing and treating vulnerable areas before they become a problem.
