Maryland residents understand that snow is just a normal part of winter. But what happens when a big storm leaves your parking lot more than a little icy? Would this keep you from opening your doors and cause major downtime for your business or would it not be a big deal?
At Griff’s Services, we encourage all business owners with parking lots to make a tentative plan for snow removal. There’s nothing as crippling to a facility owner than not being able to stay open due to weather, so thinking about what you intend to do this season is incredibly important. Here are a few things to consider.
Decide What a Clear Parking Lot Means to Your Business
Before you can make a decision on plans for winter snow removal, it’s important to decide what a clear parking lot means to your business. Would it be just a minor inconvenience or a crippling crisis?
For example, if you have an excessive number of visits from customers within a given day, having a parking lot that’s free of snow and ice could mean making thousands of dollars in sales. Likewise, if you have employees that need to come into the office after a big storm, having a clear parking lot is also important to safety. These are all things to keep in mind when putting together your plan for the season.
Choose a Quality Commercial Snow Removal Company
When making your parking lot plan, it is important to choose a quality snow removal company. Find someone who is licensed and insured, plus provides twenty-four-hour service—because, as you know, winter weather rarely happens during normal business hours. In addition, look for someone who specializes in this type of parking lot cleanup. You don’t want to leave such an important task to a small operation advertising on social media, as they might not be able to get the job done.
At Griff’s Services, we provide top-notch commercial snow removal services. Our team is highly trained and we have all the necessary equipment to assist in keeping your parking lot clear and safe during winter weather. We welcome companies to keep us as their on-call snow removal specialists during the harsh winter months.
Remember the Post-Winter Cleanup
Of course, snow doesn’t last forever. That’s why it is so important to have a post-winter cleanup plan, too. At Griff’s Services, we offer a full range of commercial power washing services to suit your needs. This includes things like rinsing away the remnants of the season, such as salt or dirt buildup left by the melting precipitation. All of these things can cause major damage to the pavement, so it is always a good idea to keep in mind the process for after the ice is long gone.
Now is the perfect time to consider your winter snow removal plan. Contact Griff’s Services today to learn more about our snow removal services or to discuss on-call service this winter.
