Properties in the Nanaimo area are up against a lot. Climates might be temperamental throughout the year but nothing compares to those winter months. All across the city, snowfalls, heavy rains and slippery surfaces are a daily struggle for property owners.

Snow and ice can bury sidewalks or turn them into skating rinks. If you are having a tough time keeping up with the weather, a Gorilla is only a phone call away. Experienced Nanaimo snow removal and salting services help to keep properties clear, passable and safe.

Ice Management & Snow Removal Services

There is a misconception that the west coast doesn’t experience winter – but this just isn’t true! There might not be as much snow as there is in central Canada and it might stay warmer but there is still plenty of snow and ice to go around. Managing snow buildup is tough enough for a single property but more complicated areas like strata areas or commercial spaces can feel impossible. You might be able to shovel snow from a single walkway but handling a parking lot requires more than elbow grease. The good news is that there is always a Gorilla ready and able to handle your residential and commercial spaces. When it comes to a commercial property, there are liability issues around every corner. Even a small patch of ice can mean a slip, followed by a lawsuit. No one wants anybody else to get hurt, especially if that has serious repercussions for your business.

Trying to tackle snow or ice on your own is harder than it seems. Pushing accumulation away from walkways can take hours of hard labour and result in blisters, frostbite or muscle sprains. Even if you do manage to get the snow out of the way, there is always ice lurking nearby. Salt is sold by the bagful but it takes more than a light sprinkling to get results. Every property has its own problem areas for ice formation. Just because it is winter does not mean that there is no warm weather during the day. Warm temperatures and sunshine melt snow during the day, leaving thin puddles and slush scattered around. Overnight, these puddles re-freeze, leaving slipping hazards behind.

Gorillas Are Always On the Move

Many property owners wait until they are buried before calling in professional snow clearing services. Instead of just reacting to snowstorms, our experts plan for it. By keeping an eye on the skies, team members are able to create a plan of attack for properties of any and all sizes. Being reactionary is great when it comes to property maintenance, but why panic when you can plan ahead? Regular maintenance can be scheduled as a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or as an emergency call-out, available 24 hours a day. Calling a Gorilla means professional care and expert results for your home or workplace.

In order to get the best results for our clients, our team of experts are always watching the skies. Weather in British Columbia is unpredictable, so winter services must be able to keep up. By monitoring incoming storm fronts and problem areas, specialists are able to travel to commercial spaces and residential areas before the worst of it hits. This means pre-emptive de-icing and preparation to help keep clients on their feet!
