In Maine, we experience winter weather typically from November to early April, depending on weather cycles. During this time, it will snow along with icy weather, and that type of weather can bring safety hazards to your commercial property such as workplace injuries.
Keeping snow and ice removed from your parking lots, sidewalks, and entryways can keep your business accessible and help reduce employee injuries related to snow. We service commercial properties in Gardiner, Augusta, Waterville, and surrounding Maine areas.
Typically, our snow removal teams will deploy to your commercial property once the snowfall accumulates to two inches. We come loaded with all the equipment necessary to effectively and efficiently remove snow from your property without damaging any of the underlying surfaces. The equipment we use for snow removal includes:
We can also shovel by hand and use the snowblower for sidewalks and entryways where needed. Based on each individual contract, we can either pile the snow in an out of the way area on your property or haul it away completely.
For deicing services, we use ice melt, sand, and rock salt on your sidewalks. In parking lots, we use a sand/salt blend or rock salt.
Keeping your business property clear of snow and ice provides you with many benefits. It keeps your business accessible when winter weather strikes. Without snow removal, it will be more difficult for customers to reach your business and it increases their chances of slipping and falling, thus increasing your chances of seeing a liability lawsuit. Removing snow and ice ensures customers can safely get to where they need to go.
Professional snow removal also keeps your property safer for your employees. Employee injuries related to slips and falls on ice can delay your business productivity and can also incur worker's comp claims. In 2017, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were more than 20,000 ice and snow-related injuries at work. Maine had one of the highest rates in the country, with 8.2 incidents per 10,000 full-time workers.
Keeping your property clear of snow also ensures that your business will operate on schedule and you won't see any downtime related to winter weather. A reliable, professional snow removal team will work to ensure that snow and ice are swiftly removed.
We provide snow removal and snow blowing services for the Kennebec River Rail Trail, a popular attraction in the area.
