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 Continues to Reduce Environmental Salt Usage

Salt is one of the most unfortunate side effects of winter weather monitoring and management. Today, it’s a necessary evil for melting snow and ice off of roads and sidewalks so people aren’t injured. In the process, salt damages roads, cars, and the surrounding environment, making it a dangerous chemical compound that can erode vegetation and harm animals.

Xtreme Snow Pros, through cutting edge technology and real-time location monitoring, is committed to reducing salt usage when it’s unnecessary today. Unlike plowing companies that just hit the road, spraying salt in every direction, Xtreme Snow Pros is on a mission to show all winter weather companies it’s possible to use salt sparingly while also keeping customers safe and happy.

In order to ensure only the right amount of salt is being used, Xtreme Snow Pros has the technological infrastructure to monitor, in real-time, pavement temperatures, as well as salt administration, right from their operation center. By knowing the pavement temperatures, they are able to assess if laying salt is absolutely necessary. Additionally, their real-time web cams let them see how their staff is tracking and laying salt at participating client locations. If they feel too much is being used, they can communicate with staff immediately about curbing its application.

Additionally, for taking preemptive measures before salt comes into question, Xtreme pre-treats properties with the use of their proprietary CombatIce Enviro Liquid product, purchased from their sister company: Xtreme Ice Control. This liquid is specially designed to be kind to the surrounding environment and pull back on burning grasses and animal’s feet. It’s an ecologically sound alternative to throwing piles of salt down anytime dangerous weather is en route.

Lastly, to ensure they are doing everything they can to minimize salt usage, Xtreme Snow Pros uses LiveEdge Technology. This technology enables them to monitor all weather conditions in real-time. Since meteorologists don’t always get the forecast right, by watching the weather in real time through their LiveEdge Technology, they are able to assess how much salt is required.

It is estimated that more than 22 million tons of salt are scattered on the roads in the United States annually. That amounts to 137 pounds of salt per every American – every single winter. More companies need to make a commitment to being frugal with their salt usage. The degrading effects on the environment and wildlife will be irreversible at some point, not to mention the wear-and-tear it causes vehicles on the road. By committing to lower salt usage, Xtreme Snow Pros is doing something for our wallets, the environment, and the animals that make up our ecosystems.
