When we think of snow plowing services the first thing that comes to mind is a big truck with a blade scrapping roads, driveways, and parking lots. But did you know there is much more to that?
To start each snowfall is unique and requires the snow removal company to know how to work most efficiently in each case. To complicate things further, more often than not, the type of snowfall changes during the snowstorm, requiring snow plow operators to adjust the way, frequency, and direction of plowing.Then, there is snow accumulation. In Westchester, NY, we get an average of 37 inches of snow per year! That's a lot of snow that gets accumulated. In colder winters that accumulation turns to hard solid ice. Accumulated snow can occupy many parking spaces on your parking lot or even block entrance/exit if not done properly.
So the question is, how to properly manage snow accumulated by snow plowing?
At ADR Snow Management, we don't just plow snow, we manage snow and ice on commercial properties. Snow plowing is one of the services on our portfolio but, to keep the properties clean and people safe, we create a custom snow and ice management plan for each of our clients.
Before the snow season starts, we meet with our client and do a full site inspection. During this inspection, we determine where snow will be accumulated, or if it will be hauled away from the property, building entrance is mapped out as well as curbs, drainage, steps, and ramps. So we leave nothing to guesswork.
After the property is plowed, we apply de-icers to prevent ice and costly slip and fall accidents. We'll talk about types of de-icers next blog post, so stay tuned.
