Winter weather can often result in the accumulation of snow on walkways, handicap ramps, driveway, deck, porch and/or patio that limits access to your home. The accumulation of snow can also cause a potentially hazardous situation for anyone trying to access these areas. Addressing the accumulation of snow in these areas can help reduce the risk of injury and improve access.
To clear these areas and keep them accessible after winter weather, entrust The Grounds Guys for residential snow clearing services. Our crews carefully monitor weather conditions and can clear snow from the areas around your home after a winter storm.
We start your snow clearing service prior to the arrival of a storm. We come to your home in advance to identify the areas where snow may accumulation and create a hazardous situation. We determine where the snow will be placed when it is removed so as not to block driveways, walkways, doorways, etc. This ensures that your family, friends, and guests are able to move freely around your home, and the exterior of your property is maintained.
Maintaining a Safe Environment
We start with the safety of your family and guests. We consider how they will navigate your property by both car and foot. We also evaluate exterior areas that are accessible such as a deck and/or patio. To ensure a safe environment we perform the following:
- Keep entrances, walking paths, common areas and driving lanes clear of snow
- Make sure snow that does accumulates in high traffic areas is cleared promptly
- Place snow away from high traffic areas to keep your property accessible in cold weather
The Snow Clearing Process
We utilize shovels and snow blowers to clear snow from high traffic areas around your home. We take special care when removing snow to avoid damaging trees, plants and surfaces made of brick, pavers, stamped concrete, and natural stone. When clearing snow, we use our initial assessment to place snow in predetermined areas away from vehicles and places where people and pets will walk. This helps expedite the snow clearing process and ensures snow piles will not blocks access to utilities, fire hydrants, or vehicles. This also allows us to keep snow away from your home or other structures when possible.
We also avoid covering exhaust vents, so they continue to work properly as well as, drains, in order to allow for adequate drainage when the snow begins to melt. Snow will also be cleared from house numbers to keep them visible from the street so emergency vehicles can find your house.
