Any amount of snowfall can be problematic, even if it is just a dusting. Instead of struggling to manage snow and ice around your home or commercial property, just call a Gorilla. Professional Langley snow removal and salting can treat everything from unattached homes to parking lots.
Local Quirks: Snow Removal and Salting in Langley
Langley might not have the coldest climate in the nation, but sunny days and warm patches can be extremely dangerous throughout winter. As temperatures drop, there are certain things that homeowners need to watch out for:
Build Up: Whether it comes down in large dumps or in pieces, every day, snow adds up. Piled snow can mean slippery surfaces and health hazards for tenants, visitors and customers. No one wants a nasty slip and fall but these are made even worse when it comes to liability. With snow accumulating every day, property owners have a responsibility to clear it away every day.
Timing: During winter, the majority of snow falls during late night and early morning hours. This means keeping on top of those fluffy white flakes means staying up late at night or being buried in the morning.
By-Laws: More than being a basic inconvenience, regular snow removal is a part of the law! Every city has its own by-laws that dictate what counts as a passable environment. Walkways have to cleared completely so that residents of all mobility can pass through easily. If mobility tools like wheelchairs and walkers can’t get through your space, a fine might be in your future.
Ice: More often than not, tangling with ice is more complicated than it seems. In an unpredictable climate like the one in B.C, it is tough to avoid slippery situations. Sunshine and warmer temperatures melt snow during the day, only to have it re-freeze over night. Every year, there are thousands of people admitted to the hospital due to ice-related slips and falls. Dropping a couple tonnes of salt around your property is not enough to keep visitors on their feet. Don’t be part of the statistic when you can have a clear and safe outdoor space.
