It’s happening, Maryland! To make up for our particularly warm winter, It seems as though our first real snowfall of the season is going to produce major accumulation. If you forgot snow existed for a moment there, we don’t blame you. But Maryland and many states in the Mid-Atlantic are facing a potential blizzard! Do you plan to shovel? Are you going to hire a professional for efficient and effective snow removal? Do you even have a snow removal plan?
Parking Lot Snow Removal
Parking lots can become unmanageable rapidly in the face of a winter storm if they are not treated properly, and quickly. It is best to get an efficient and effective snow removal and maintenance plan in place – sooner rather than later. It is of utmost importance that you do not let snow pile up in handicap parking areas or walkways. Clearing snow as soon as possible will increase the safety of the people on your property. It will also increase the longevity of your pavement by preventing new cracks and worsened potholes from appearing.
Road and Sidewalk Snow Removal
Each city that experiences winter weather has specific guidelines for the pace at which snow must be removed from sidewalks and private roads. These are law-abiding instructions for residential and non-residential properties.
Salting and Ice Melting
Sodium chloride (salt) is derived from mined rock salt that is crushed up. it also serves as a de-icing tool to assist in melting ice and snow. De-icing is an important part of your snow removal plan, but if it is colder than 10 degrees, don’t expect it to be as effective.
