During summer months, thousands of tourists make their way over to Vancouver Island. With beautiful scenery, tons of activities and cultural events and a thriving restaurant scene, what is not to love? When cold weather hits, however, it is a very different story. Every year, property owners are left to go up against snow and ice – and that isn’t any fun!
Instead of struggling through snow falls and slipping on ice, call in a professional to create a safe and passable environment around your home or commercial space. Our Ladysmith snow removal and salting services combine top-of-the-line tools and techniques to get the best results every time.
Ladysmith Snow and Ice Control: Clearing a Path
No matter how you look at it, snow buildup can put a damper on your day. High-stepping through snow can lead to wet socks and frost-bitten toes. This would be an uncomfortable situation but injuries are even worse. Slipping on ice or pulling muscles while shovelling can mean a quick trip to the hospital – but professional maintenance can eliminate this risk.
Whether you are dealing with a foot or an inch, no amount of snow is worth a trip to the emergency room. Clearing snow from your driveway, sidewalk or paving stones makes life easier for tenants, guests, customers, mail carriers and passersby. Local government even has by-laws in place to ensure that snow clearing is being done.
The city of Ladysmith is responsible for snow and ice removal around community spaces and public works. This means that community areas like parks, public sidewalks, bus routes and priority routes for vehicles are taken care of, but residential areas are up to property owners. Save yourself the liability and the manual labour by calling a Gorilla.
Getting the Right Results
Running into the yard to make a snow angel might be fun, but this is not a proper snow removal technique. When there is snow accumulating around your space, it is easy to lean on traditional treatment methods but these are rarely enough to get the job done properly. When tackling ice or snow, it is important to consider the area you are dealing with.
Shovelling snow might work for a portion of a single sidewalk but when it comes to more complicated areas, it is time to bring in the big guns. Larger areas like cul de sacs or parking lots require power tools to get the job done properly, which means added expenses and storage.
Property management means keeping tenants and guests safe and that means having the right tools to get the job done. The problem with power tools is that they are expensive to purchase initially, but then they require regular maintenance. Many of these are also fairly large. You can’t just lean a plow or blower up against a wall, they require storage space, which a lot of properties do not have. Calling in a pro means having these items dropped off and then carted away after use.
The Gorilla Approach
Through rain, shine or snow, events and everyday life have to go on, so our Gorillas are committed to making that as easy as possible. Storm fronts and bad weather do not keep a regular schedule, so neither do our experts. Vigilant monitoring makes it possible for our crews to anticipate the needs of our clients, and to prepare for the worst.
Monitoring weather 24 hours makes it possible to anticipate not only snow fall but ice formations as well. Sunny days mean snow melt, which then refreezes overnight, creating huge problems for foot traffic. After years in the industry, our specialists understand the best ways to treat the nooks, crannies and difficult areas of any space.
When you want the best results for your residential, commercial or multi-unit properties, our Gorillas can get you there. Make regular snow removal and salting a part of your maintenance routine or simply call in for emergency call-outs.
