How Snow Removal Services can Help make Winter Easier

How Snow Removal Services can Help make Winter Easier

When the Weather Outside is Frightful...

More often than not, when it comes to snow removal services, neighborhoods and backroads are usually cleared last by the city because they don’t carry as much traffic as major roads. This makes it extremely difficult to venture outside of your home during major snow fall and storm that heads your way. So what is the solution?

At Shane’s Pristine Power Wash, we offer snow removal services that help clear your neighborhood and keep you and your family safe from snow related incidents.

Snow Removal Service Breakdown

Snow removal services consist of a lot more than just snow shoveling and plowing, and while yes these make up a large chunk of the service another thing that we combat is ice. Usually, when it snows, some of it will melt throughout the day, and then as the temperatures drop overnight this melted snow turns into ice, making the conditions all that more dangerous.

While snow is known to cause slips and falls for most people and a loss of traction for vehicles, the main threat during the winter season is ice. When it comes to riding your areas of ice there are a few different ways you can go about it.

The first option is a pretreatment with liquid deicer

Regardless of how cold the temperatures are, foot traffic never stops. From walking to your mailbox to taking your dog out for a walk, there are plenty of reasons why you may need to venture out during frigid weather. Because of this it is important that your pavement and sidewalk are visible and clear of ice at all time. Our snow removal services that that utilize pretreatment with liquid deicer are a newer method of treatment that is less harmful to plants and buildings than salt (the most commonly used method). This method is just as effective as salt is when it comes to keeping ice from bonding to the pavement.

The other option that we use in our snow removal services is salt

When we think about snow removal services and snow and ice preparation the first thing that comes to most people’s minds is salt treatment. This type of removal is the most common because it is especially useful in conditions where snow is falling quickly and rapidly. However, this treatment can be extremely erosive to the outside of buildings. This type of damage occurs when salt gets trapped within the porous outer lays of stone or concrete. Salt treatment can also cause damage to the interior of buildings when it is tracked in on the bottom of shoes or other outerwear. It can also damage your home’s landscape over time because it removes moisture from plants.

Our team at Shane’s Pristine Power Wash will work with you to determine which method is best for your property and for your neighborhood.

There are a few options that people have when choosing what snow removal services fit best for them and their neighborhood’s area.

Snow Banking

If you don’t mind large piles of snow around your property and neighborhood snow banking may be the best option for you. This option is more affordable, however, a lot of people don’t realize just how long it can take for these snow banks to melt naturally. It isn’t unheard of for these large piles of snow to remain intact into late spring when the temperatures begin to rise. When it comes to choosing which snow removal services are best for you, we recommend leaving this option at the bottom of your list to avoid seeing snow in the summertime.

Snow Plowing, Shoveling and Blowing

Snow plowing is the process that most people think of when they think of snow removal services. But this isn’t the only way to clear streets and sidewalks of snow and ice. There are areas that snowplows just can’t get to, so that means it’s time to break out the shovels and snow blowers to remove snow and ice from sidewalks and walkways. We can also help with removing snow and ice from flower beds, helping to make sure that your trees and shrubs are visible for you and your neighbors to enjoy (even if they are a little frozen).

Snow Hauling

Another option offered when it comes to snow removal services is hauling snow to another location. This process is as simple as it sounds! We remove the snow and bring it to another location where it will later melt naturally as the weather heats up.
