If you live in Ohio, then you know what it is like to be in the middle of a long, cold winter. You also know that snow removal becomes an important task that needs to be done occasionally throughout the winter months. While many people opt to take care of snow removal on their own, business and homeowners need to keep in mind that snow can cause more damage than we think it can. This means that snow removal can be left to the professionals to handle while you relax with a warm cup of hot chocolate, tea, or coffee.
Commercial Property Owners
If you are a business owner, you are responsible for keeping all sidewalks, steps, parking lots, and other areas clear of snow and ice throughout the winter months. They need to be safe for not only your customers or clients but for your employees as well. By keeping these areas free of snow and ice, you will decrease your liability if an accident occurs and it's just a great courtesy for your staff and customers.
By removing snow and ice from cement and blacktop areas, you are also extending the life of those surfaces which will save you money, time, and headaches in the long run. The team at Waterville Irrigation know and understand the importance of keeping these areas free of snow and ice and have the equipment and experience to get the job done for you quickly and efficiently throughout the winter.
Snow and Ice Damage
Snow and ice can be very damaging to asphalt in concrete walkways, parking lots, and steps in a variety of ways. First of all, the weight of the snow and ice from a snowstorm can cause cracks, chips, or potholes to form in your parking lot or walkway areas. Over time, this can cause a great deal of damage to those areas, especially to surfaces that are older or have weakened.
Snow and ice will also cause the seal coat or other protective coatings on your concrete or asphalt to deteriorate. By removing ice and snow properly and in a timely manner, you will extend the life of those coatings, hence improving the lifespan of your walkways and parking areas.
Additionally, snow and ice that are left to sit on your surfaces can shorten the lifespan of any seal coating or protective coatings you have on your asphalt and concrete. Removing snow and ice in a timely manner helps to extend the life of these protective coatings.
