Commercial Snow Removal Barrington

Snow can make landscaping look beautiful. Fresh white snow covering the ground with kids making snowmen and sledding is one of the picturesque images of winter, what they don’t look forward to is the snow covering sidewalks, roads, and parking lots making travel difficult or impossible. This is why proper snow removal is important. Not only will it make traveling to locations easier, mostly your own, but it also has other added benefits as well.

Why Your Business Needs Commercial Snow Removal

The biggest reason to remove snow is safety. Snow reduces traction. This leads to people slipping and cars sliding. If this occurs on your property you could be liable for any injuries or damages. This is why prompt and complete snow removal is so important. Even if it is just snowfall, that snow can quickly turn to ice which increases the chance of injury or other damages. Salt and other de-icers can make a problem worst when not properly applied.

Difficulty of removal

Anyone who has had to shovel it by hand knows how hard it is to move snow. Snow blowers make the job easier, but sometimes after a heavy snow, it becomes impossible to tackle. This is where a professional snow removal company comes in handy. Large-scale snow removal equipment is designed to remove heavy and dense snow with ease. The downside is large scale snow removal equipment is costly and bulky. Making purchasing and storage a hassle for most businesses, but snow removal companies like Mark 1 Landscaping have that equipment on hand and ready to help you.

Avoiding Business Disruption

Because most businesses have people coming in and out of their property regularly during business hours, and not always customers, having lots of snow building up can make it hard or impossible for employees, vendors, and other people to get to your business. There is also the factor of people becoming upset or angry with having to walk through deep snow to get to your business. This makes removing the snow as important for safety because it can hurt your business. This comes in two forms of loss, loss of sales and loss of productivity. Customers who walk in through the door annoyed are less likely to buy something unless they absolutely need it. It is no secret that customers in a good mood buy more and are more likely to purchase things on impulse, than those that are in a bad mood. Employees are just as susceptible to this effect but in a different way. Employees who are in a bad mood tend to be more sluggish and less energetic and that can cause poor performance that results in lost production or sales.
