With more than 54 inches of snowfall each year in Minneapolis, it’s important to plan for prompt removal as it accumulates on the ground and top of your building. In order to keep clients and workers safe, you have the responsibility of removing the snow yourself or paying professionals to handle the situation. Removing the snow can also keep your building materials in perfect shape for the duration of the cold season. If you stay on top of this problem, you could even avoid fines and contribute to the clean, safe atmosphere in your city. Read on for more information.
Snow accumulation affects your customers, employees and the structure of your building. In addition, since clearing off the sidewalks is your responsibility, neglect also affects everyone who walks past your premises. If you do not fulfill your obligation to clear the sidewalks within four days, you may receive a warning from city officials. Ignoring that warning usually results in a series of fines until you clear the ice and snow. Furthermore, your company could face a lawsuit if someone injures themselves on accumulated snow and ice covering the sidewalks near your business.
The snow and ice add excess weight to your building’s roof, gutters and support beams. The average roof on a commercial building can only support about thirty pounds of weight on each square foot. Snow and ice accumulation can easily surpass that threshold in a week or two of heavy snowfall or hail downpours. As the snow and ice naturally melt away, water could pool under the shingles and siding to weaken the materials enough to cause an interior leak. Water leaking inside the building often causes mildew and mold growth that could shut down your company during the cleanup process.
If you’re only facing a few inches of ice and snow, you can attempt to remove these substances from the sidewalk yourself using a few key tools. Grab a snow shovel, blower and bag of sand to start the removal process. You’ll want to push away as much of the snow as possible using the blower. Make sure you’re sending the snow to the side where people do not tread.
Use your snow shovel to completely remove the packed ice and snow beneath the powdery flakes. Do your best to avoid pressing the snow down against the sidewalk, as that will create a slippery, icy surface. After you’re done, spread a thin layer of sand over the sidewalk to give passersby traction.
As for the roof, gutters and awnings, do not attempt removal on your own unless you have access to protective safety equipment, especially harnesses to keep you firmly planted on the shingles. Snow and ice accumulation make your slanted roof surface incredibly slippery, which could send you flying off the side to the ground below.
Luckily, you can seek professional assistance to have the snow and ice removed in a timely manner. Removal companies adequately prepare their workers with the right safety equipment and snow elimination tools.
Here are just a few tools you’ll see the workers use to remove the accumulation:
The professionals will usually start with the roof to push all of the snow and ice onto the sidewalks below. During this procedure, the sidewalks are blocked off to keep people from traveling under the work area. You may need to schedule this service while your business is closed to keep clients out of harm’s way.
The heavy equipment quickly displaces the snow and ice to create a clear walking surface on the sidewalks. Instead of sand, professionals use a salt solution that melts the frozen water and keeps it from sticking on that area if snowfall occurs soon after. This prevents you from having to schedule removal appointments on a daily basis. Instead, you may be able to space out the appointments to once a week or more, depending on the weather conditions.
If you’re expecting heavy snowfall, but don’t already have accumulation to clear away, consider having professionals apply more salt brine solution to the sidewalk and roof to keep the snow from sticking to the ground. The salt melts the snow as it touches the ground while reducing the freezing temperature of standing water to prevent the formation of ice in that area. If business owners and city officials work together in this manner, the streets and sidewalks can stay clear despite heavy snow.
If you stay on top of the snow removal process, you should keep your building in good shape and protect customers and employees from fall injuries. Furthermore, you make your city just a little bit safer for those traveling by bike or on foot. Removing hazards even protects your bottom line by preventing injuries that could result in a lawsuit against your company. Nearby business owners may appreciate your efforts and join in the fight against slippery sidewalks, crosswalks and street surfaces. Since snowfall accumulates quickly overnight, it’s best to take precautionary steps in addition to reacting to accumulation in a timely manner to keep the area safe for everyone.
If you hire professionals, you’ll have a paper trail proving you obtained snow removal services in a timely manner throughout the cold season. Removal professionals can check your premises to help you create a removal schedule that works for your local weather conditions. Taking the guesswork out of the removal process may even lower stress levels by eliminating worries about this process. You can trust professionals, like KG Landscape, to help you protect your company from the dangers of snow and ice accumulation.
