Why Commercial Snow Removal Companies Are a Property Manager’s Best Friends

Every snow contractor has a different approach to planning, overseeing, and administering snow and ice removal services during the winter season. By following the best practices out there today, firms like Xtreme Snow Pros are able to save business owners time and money through their high quality performance. As a firm that’s dedicated to making sure they literally get out in front of the storm, they’re actually able to save property managers money in the process.

Here are a few notable ways in which the beneficial relationship saves time and dollars:

1. Education:

Professional snow and ice removal companies are the experts when it comes to managing winter weather. Property managers are tasked with understanding a variety of services and problems for being effective. By working alongside the snow removal company, they will receive a steady influx of education that helps them to understand how to effectively and smartly treat the weather.

2. Anti-Icing Products

Salt isn’t the only ice solution available to business owners today. Contrary to popular belief, there are actually anti-icing liquids that can be utilized on properties prior to snowstorms. Xtreme Snow Pros uses this product, as opposed to excessive salting, as a way to save property managers money. Additionally, it spares the environment, too.

3. Salt Savings

Salt costs a lot of money today. Any business owner reading this will know what we mean. The problem is that many property managers don’t know there are alternatives. By working alongside a snow removal company, they will learn about de-icing liquids that are a fraction of the rock salt pricing. Property managers will also save money when there’s less environmental damage viewable at the end of the winter season.

4. Advanced Technology

Whether it’s the latest in snow hauling equipment or the newest advances in communication, a professional snow company knows to be ahead in order to provide the best service possible to its clients. Xtreme Snow Pros’ advances in technology are ever growing. They provide clients with log in capabilites to view the status and pictures of their properties in real time providing peace of mind and customer satisfaction.

5. Lawsuits

There’s perhaps nothing more expensive than dealing with a personal injury lawsuit. If a patron slips, falls, and is injured on commercial property, they have grounds to sue that company. Though property managers may do their best to try and prevent this kind of problem, it can become very difficult with the typical Northeastern winter weather. By working with a snow and ice removal company, commercial clients can rest assured that they’ll never be slapped with a multi-thousand-dollar lawsuit out of the blue.

Of course, Xtreme Snow Pros takes the time to develop a detailed snow response plan that prevents any kind of catastrophes for their commercial clients. In the long-run, they save property managers thousands of dollars – not to mention, they provide some peace of mind during the year’s most chaotic weather months.

Xtreme Snow Pros Chris Marino, Glenn Kramer, and Joe Capobianco Jr. earn SIMA accreditation

It’s been an exciting week here at Xtreme Snow Pros! Three members from our management team have received Snow & Ice Management Association (SIMA) accreditation, further legitimizing their expertise in the world of snow and ice removal. Our own Chris Marino, Owner, Glenn Kramer, Operations Manager, and Joe Capobianco Jr., Business Developer, have earned their Advanced Snow Manager (ASM) designation.

At Xtreme Snow Pros, we are always committed to providing high-quality, dependable, and affordable winter weather management services. With over 30 years of experience in the snow and ice removal business, Xtreme Snow Pros provides every client with affordable, worry-free snow management solutions. Their accounts include retail establishments, corporate office buildings, healthcare facilities, apartment complexes, and homeowner associations.

As such, our management team is constantly completing new course and credits to further advance their knowledge of the industry we know and love. With dangerous wintery weather causing thousands of people to crash throughout Northeast winters ever year, the Xtreme Snow Pros team knows it’s possible for us all to navigate the blustery weather in a safe and smart manner.

Now proudly the recipients of ASM designations, these three gentleman bring with them to the table:

● Serious training – Building an effective, quality training program for snow operations is challenging. SIMA has made it easy to create consistent, reliable training for operations managers and operators.

● Stronger people – Strength of service is only as good as the people who power it. The ASM program helps build confidence and leadership and empowers snow personnel to become more efficient and knowledgeable during snow events.

● Safer operations – ASM focuses on creating a culture that rewards safety and seeks to reduce the chance of injuries, and service failure. This includes standardized methods of organizing and documenting work that occurs onsite.

And the list goes on. Having completed the program, each person completed four certificate courses: Core Principles, Plowing Operations, Sidewalk Operations, and Ice Management. Individuals complete the courses, and then take a quiz to assess knowledge. Those who earn all four certificates receive the ASM designation, an official training credential from SIMA.
