Snow removal and deicing are strenuous jobs, especially when attempted without optimal equipment. Our professionals have the proper equipment to get the job done both safely and efficiently.

Other emergencies were related to exertion, slips and falls, and direct impact from the snow shovel. Cardiac-related visits accounted for 6.7%.

Materials and equipment we use to perform snow removal and deicing services.
The equipment and materials used vary according to job site specifics, and in particular, commercial vs. residential services.
Equipment used for parking lots and sidewalks.
For commercial areas, plows are used to remove snow from larger parking areas. Sidewalks are typically cleared with snow blowers. The snow is commonly piled. However, it can also be removed (i.e. hauled away) if the customer desires.
For residential areas, we typically use truck plows or a 4-wheeler (an ATV-like vehicle) equipped with a plow. As with commercial properties, sidewalks are usually cleared using a snow blower.
Deicing Materials Used
We use both traditional salt granules as well as liquid deicers. We understand the benefits of combining liquid deicers with salt, and we want your property to benefit from that. Liquids can be used before snowfall to pre-treat an area or after a snowfall as a “wetting” agent where the solution is sprayed onto the salt as it exits the spreader.
Using liquids typically results in more efficient and more effective deicing. Our goal is to maximize the satisfaction of our customers. That’s why we are committed to using the latest technologies.
