The city of Winnipeg is known around the world for two things: being the Slurpee capital and it’s harsh winters! The city itself can see wind chills in the negative 30’s – 50’s so it is no wonder residents are not happy when it is time to shovel! Instead of fighting off the cold on your own, call our Gorillas for your Winnipeg snow removal and salting.
Understanding the Season
It is easy to watch snowflakes fall and admire the winter scenery, but dealing with the aftermath is less pleasant. Over 100 cm of snow falls over the city every year. These flurries can come down in small increments or in large-scale storms, but in either case, it is no picnic! A quick dusting is easy to handle but a heavy snowfall requires heavy equipment. Struggling to clear large areas with snow shovels takes time and a lot of muscle. Instead of working harder, a Gorilla works smarter. Our Gorillas are always monitoring the weather forecasts in order to be prepared for any amount of snow or ice formation.
In the prairies, the majority of snowfall occurs at night when the weather is coldest. Frigid temperatures make it even easier to delay snow removal. These delays pave the way for packed snow and pile-ups. A mountain of snow might not seem like the end of the world, but as snow melts, it becomes one. In addition to having a thick skin, our Gorillas are always looking forward. Day or night, our Gorillas are prepared to take care of your commercial or residential snow removal.
The Gorilla Approach
As early as October, temperatures begin to dip well below freezing and can stay that way until April. Even rising temperatures pose problems to property owners. As snow melts during the day, it re-freezes overnight, creating large patches of ice on sidewalks, driveways, roads and steps. While salt might seem like a standard solution, it is hard to get right.
Instead of sticking to a 9-5 schedule, our Gorillas are available for emergency call-out services 24 hours a day. Waking up to find strangers on your property in the middle of the night can be scary, but our Gorillas stand out! Every one of our technicians are outfitted with brightly coloured uniforms and vehicles. Because each property has its own unique needs, our Gorillas arrive on-scene full stocked with snow plows, shovels and blowers to get the job done right.
