When it comes to the management of any landscape, we hope that the company in charge prioritizes safety as much as we do. That is why our team at Dream Greener is always practicing safety-first behaviors. Keeping children and pets inside while work is being performed, and training staff extensively on the use of our commercial-grade equipment are just a couple of examples. There are certain times of the year when safety measures need to become even more prevalent, and winter is that time. When snow is falling and freezing concrete becomes icy, the whole landscape becomes one large safety hazard. Safety is the number one reason you should engage in snow and ice removal, and here are a few reasons why.
Prevent a Slip and Fall
The number one reason you should engage in snow and ice removal is to prevent any potential bodily harm from taking place on your property. Everyone has seen an animated image of somebody running on ice, their feet flying out from under them, and then taking a nasty fall onto their back. While it is entirely possible that this is not the exact injury that will take place, there are a wide array of other nasty alternatives. If your property is actively used by children, you cannot prevent them from running on ice, which is why a lifeguard will always have a job at the swimming pool.
Car Accidents and Vehicle Damage
Beyond walkways, parking lots are another potential culprit for causing problems. Unless everyone who uses your parking lot has just installed a brand-new pair of snow tires, they are probably at risk. When roads are icy, car accidents become much more prevalent, and you would prefer that they occur off-site rather than internally. Snow and ice removal services from Dream Greener will not only include the plowing of this space, but the disbursement of salt to melt the ice. Vehicle damage is very costly, and commercial customers could certainly be unhappy about hazardous conditions.
Keep People Inside
Another benefit of having snow removal services is that people will be spending less time on the roads and walkways. The easier time they have getting in and out of the property, the less chance there is for any safety risk to occur. With Dream Greener as your snow and ice removal partner, you can be sure that we will be out at the break of dawn getting things cleared.
Mitigate Liability and Legal Risk
Beyond the unfortunate reality that would be an injury or property damage incident on your property, is the liability that might come with it. If someone can make the argument that you have not lived up to your end of the property management bargain, they can take you to court. Even if the case is bogus, there are still a ton of headaches associated with a costly court battle, like time and money. Take risk-averse action with snow removal services.
