Whether you are a single residence property owner or manage a sprawling apartment complex, it’s always smart to have a plan for your snow removal needs. And it’s even smarter to have that plan in place before winter arrives.
Cleaning driveways, melting the icy spots and reducing hazards are all essential components of a good snow removal plan. You have to consider the when, how, and who when you create your own strategy for controlling the heavy loads of snow we receive in the Midwest. Doing so helps you prepare for whatever the season brings.
To start crafting your perfect snow removal plan, it’s first important to ask yourself a few questions:
- What worked or didn’t work last year with your snow removal?
- How much time do you have to dedicate to snow removal?
- What tools and equipment do you have on hand to tackle the job?
Once you have considered these questions, it’s time to start planning your approach. You can keep the process simple by addressing each individual aspect of the process. Begin by devising a plan for these specific areas of snow removal.
When will the snow be removed?
What is your schedule like? Are you able to run the snow blower before you head to work? How quickly do you want the area clear? Are there any community or city guidelines which require you to have the area cleared by a certain time? Much of this is determined by when the snow actually comes but it can still be helpful to think of when you have time to complete this often lengthy task.
How will the snow be removed?
What type of equipment do you already have at your disposal to clear the snow? Is that equipment in proper working order? If you handle a large complex, do you have the manpower to run those machines as long as needed to clear the areas? Snow removal is never easy but having the right tools for the job can help.
Who will remove the snow?
When time becomes limited or your equipment is less than adequate, you may want to consider hiring a professional team to remove the snow for you. Partnering with a snow removal company can make creating (and following) your snow removal plan easy. And it is much more affordable than you may think.
