Stay Safe This Winter With Snow Removal From OakLawn
Winter is nearly over, but we promise the weather is not. All the way through the spring, the temperature is sure to be low, and we would guess that there are a few more snowstorms on the way. For commercial properties, these snowfalls can be bothersome and even debilitating when they shut down the property. Losing out on revenue when your business is not open, and even angering tenants when their parking areas are not cleared in time. Not to mention the safety hazard of the snow for those trying to walk around. This can lead to potential liability for property management, especially if bad injuries are sustained. For this reason and others, we will outline and consider staying safe with snow removal from OakLawn for the tail end of the winter season.
Shut Down Liability with Snow and Ice Removal
The most pressing issue that needs to be addressed with snow removal is the potential for a lawsuit if someone sustains an injury due to your negligence. It is the responsibility of property management to ensure that the property is safe to use at all reasonable times, so letting snow and ice pile up is not a wise route. Someone can easily slip and slide in their car in the parking lot or do the same walking on the sidewalk. Our snow removal program is comprehensive both addressing the removal of snow and the treatment of ice. We are also on call, so this will likely happen before you even get out of bed!
Additionally, beyond the liability of a potential injury, you never want to risk damage to someone’s livelihood with a preventable accident. Broken bones, chronic pain, or buying a new vehicle are just a few of the potentially negative outcomes. Avoid it all with snow removal.
Make a Snow Free First Impression
For many commercial properties, those that are using the property could be in a constant rotation. This means a consistent influx of people who have never before stepped onto your property. Attendees of a horse race, customers of a retail center, and visitors of a medical center are all good examples of those who might be garnering their first impression during the middle of winter. If your property is behind the surrounding competitors when it comes to snow removal, you will seem behind the ball. The likelihood of these individuals returning drops drastically, and you might be losing out on precious profit. Snow removal keeps your property in a clean condition that you are proud to show off the day after a snowfall.
This perception of the property will also be maintained by those who could be interested in a purchase. Property value is sure to be heightened by a long-term relationship with a reliable snow removal company that has performed visible work for a few years. Think of snow removal as a long-term investment in this manner.
