Hiring Professional Snow & Ice Removal: The Safer, Smarter Choice for Your Business

As you know, Minnesota winters can be unforgiving. It often takes more than a shovel and a bag of de-icer to clear the sidewalks at home. And when it comes to your business, the job’s even larger. The last thing you want to do after a snowstorm is leave the warmth of your home to trek out to your commercial property to shovel, plow and de-ice its sidewalks and parking lot. Not only that, but if you don’t have the right equipment or technique, the job could end up taking you much longer than it should and end up being far costlier. By hiring professional snow and ice removal, you can stay home while the experts take care of the snow and ice. At Classic Lawnscape, we are the trusted landscaping company serving Forest Lake and the surrounding areas and we offer snow and ice management for the entire area. We can clear the snow and ice so you don’t have to! In fact, there are many reasons to hire professionals when it comes to snow and ice removal at your commercial property, including:

It’s a Different Winter this Year

Many commercial buildings are empty or near-empty as most of its workers work from home. However, it is still necessary to clear the building’s large parking lots and sidewalks of snow and ice in accordance with building regulations or for maintenance staff to enter. If you or your employees are quarantining at home, the last thing you want is to leave the safety of your home to clear out the snow and ice. That’s where we come in. Our snow and ice management team is experienced and ready to handle this difficult task so you can stay safe indoors. 

Safety

If you try to perform snow and ice removal yourself or if one of your residents or employees attempts it, there is a heightened risk of injury. But, with professional snow and ice management, you can rest easy knowing you don’t have to worry about the possibility of bodily injury. Shoveling sidewalks can be a dangerous task with all of the manual labor required, not to mention the slippery ice. When you hire our professional landscaping company, you can rest assured the snow removal is taken care of without the worry of yourself or one of your employees slipping and getting hurt.

Savings

Hiring a professional snow and ice management team can actually save you some money in the long run. You won’t have to worry about buying new snow removal equipment or stock-up on de-icer before every storm. And, if you are unable to operate due to the snow, this can mean lost revenue, wasted hours and money that could have been earned if your business had been accessible.

Interested in learning how our landscaping company can help you manage your snow and ice? With our expert team and equipment on hand, Classic Lawnscape will begin by clearing snow and ice from motor vehicle and pedestrian traffic paths. Snow and ice management also includes full-width plowing and will be done up until the contractor deems it necessary in order to keep up with accumulations.

Especially in climates such as ours there is an annual need to “winterize” sprinkler systems. With autumn barely creeping in, us Minnesotans better prepare now because before we know it the cold will be here for its long, deep freeze. 

It’s important to follow a few simple steps before the cold sets in to make sure that sprinkler systems are ready to roll once the warm weather finally returns. Freezing temperatures can do incredible damage to a sprinkler system that still has water in its pipes; so winterizing will help you avoid potential costly repairs. Here is how the experts at Classic Lawnscape can help prepare sprinkler systems for the months ahead:

  • We will turn off the water that feeds your lawn sprinkler system. After locating the master shut-off valve we will be actively preventing water from massing within your pipes.
  • Drain the remaining water from the sprinkler system. Your hose bib will be pried open to allow free flow. A bucket will catch all of the water that runs from your pipes.
  • An air compressor will be employed to drain the overall network. After choosing the area of your lawn that is furthest out from your home, we will work our way back in towards it. Your sprinklers will run for two to three minutes, allowing all water to drain properly. 
  • Once the water switches over from mist to just air kicking out, we move on to the next one until all are clear of water.

No doubt your lawn has been showing signs of life for weeks now, flowers are likely blooming and it’s time to consider lawn irrigation systems and management. If you have professionally maintained lawn sprinkler systems, then it is likely you had the system shut down for winter and purged of water.

In this case, your lawn sprinkler system will likely require some repairs to get it running smoothly and efficiently again. We can turn your system back on and get it running like it should again.

We can also take a look at your rain sensor, if you have one, to make sure that is functioning properly and is detecting rain as it should. If it’s not, we can make sure that is replaced as well.
