Snow & Ice Management for Commercial Properties
U.S. Lawns Is Out There Braving The Storm So You Don’t Have To
For property owners and managers responsible for commercial grounds situated in climates that experience winter weather, managing snow and ice is just one more aspect of overall landscape management. As business owners ourselves, U.S. Lawns Owner-Operators understand the strain treacherous conditions can place on continuing “business as usual.” We also recognize that not every company functions on a nine-to-five, Monday through Friday schedule.
With more than 250 locations stretching from coast to coast, when you partner with us you know you’ve got the best four-season, round-the-clock commercial grounds care management team in the nation–and we’re making your landscape our top priority.
U.S. Lawns crews everywhere are on a mission to be responsive and to be there looking out for you before the freezing precipitation even begins. But our commitment to achieving 100% customer retention means we’ll also stay the course with you while the storm is raging, and we’ll be there to see our duties through to the very end, properly managing the snow and ice left behind.
When a blizzard or ice storm is looming, you’ll breathe a little easier with the knowledge that your winter weather warriors will be there as long as it takes to make sure your steps, sidewalks, and parking lots are safe. Contact us today and find out how we make your job a whole lot easier.
Your Insured Snow and Ice Management Specialists
You’ll also be glad to know every U.S. Lawns location stays current on local ordinances or requirements, and we’re always happy to provide a certificate of insurance when requested.
We know how much more challenging it can be to continue safe, profitable operations when a winter storm is on the horizon. Slick, icy, or snow packed roads, driveways, and walkways threaten the safety of employees, customers, and tenants. Even more, a thick coating of ice and heavy snowfall can also be very damaging to your property and your landscape, all while creating an entirely new set of liability concerns.
Mitigate Unnecessary Risks On Your Commercial Property
As a matter of fact, risk management is probably the biggest reason to have a reliable snow and ice management contractor in place. That means it’s important as a facility or property manager that you look to the future now instead of waiting until you have an immediate need to remove snow and de-ice frozen surfaces. You don’t need the added liability of injury from falls or accidents that resulted from a delayed response from your snow crew–especially when it could have been prevented had you not procrastinated. The only way to ensure you won’t be placed at the end of a long waiting list when winter weather is on the way is to make sure you’re already on your inclement weather management team's schedule. The best way to accomplish this is to start making your winter weather preparedness plan in June or July.
Yes, we realize winter weather is the furthest thing from anyone’s mind during the summertime, and most people don’t even want to think about preparing for a big snowstorm while they’re enjoying family and vacation time, but the summer is actually the best time to start preparing for wintertime.
Contact U.S. Lawns today. We’ll start working with you now to build a comprehensive winter weather plan so we can make sure none of us will be taken by surprise when the snow starts accumulating.
We’ll perform a site inspection of your commercial property to designate the priority areas that should be serviced first. We’ll literally map out what areas to prioritize, which ones to pre-treat, and where to stack snow to ensure there will be adequate drainage when it melts.
We’ll also plot the locations of your trees, bushes, shrubs, and any hardscapes that our crews should be aware of to avoid damage when the entire landscape is hidden under a thick blanket of snow. Finally, we will document expectations as to when U.S. Lawns should start carrying out winter weather services on your grounds, whether it’s at the first sign of falling snow or several inches in.
All of this information is integral to our ability to secure the right equipment and crew members so we can properly execute in the most responsive and efficient manner to keep your operation running smoothly.
