Now that December is here, we’re into the cold weather time of year. And with that comes snow and slush and ice and freezing rain.
This weather can cause hazardous conditions on the parking areas and walkways of your Atlanta commercial property, not to mention the roads and bridges that lead your employees and visitors there.
Waking up to mounds of wet, heavy snow and a thick layer of slick and slippery ice is not always a welcome sight to a commercial property manager.
The thought of the equipment, time and manpower needed to get the ground clear again can bring stress and headaches. And just when the snow starts melting, Mother Nature seems to find a way to drop the temperature and make it start up again.
Think Atlanta can’t suffer these types of storms? Think again. Not only did Atlanta experience a pretty brutal storm in 2011, but The Old Farmer’s Almanac predicts a colder winter with above normal snowfall for the area this year.
These impending snow forecasts and the time constraints of busy business owners and commercial property managers can make hiring a snow removal contractor a necessity at this time of year.
Here is what you should you be looking for in your Atlanta snow removal contractor.
Atlanta Snow Removal Contractors 101
Atlanta commercial property managers aren’t always accustomed to major snow and ice events. This lack of preparation, whether it’s not enough snowplows or salt, deicing products to handle the job, or enough people to help with removal, can result in a hectic, reactive rush to move the snow and ice. Proactive planning is the key.
And that’s what a professional Atlanta snow removal contractor can do for a commercial property manager. By keeping a watchful eye on the weather predictions and conditions, the right snow and ice removal professional is always prepared to handle its clients’ snow and ice challenges—even as the storm is just beginning.
And when the storm is in its full swing, an Atlanta commercial property manager must have a snow removal contractor partner that has the tools and staff necessary to handle everything Mother Nature brings. This includes the manpower needed for long hours, the management capable of logistical management, and well-maintained equipment that is ready for tough work at a moment’s notice.
Not only that, but commercial property managers should ensure their Atlanta snow removal contractor is insured, provides a contract for the work necessary, and has references and case studies available for review.
