Snow and Ice Control: What You Need

It’s no secret — winter can be a formidable foe for property owners and managers. While our Utah snow may be picturesque, it can be hazardous for tenants and customers. Timely maintenance is vital to protect your assets. Here is what you need to look for in a snow and ice maintenance provider.

Must-have resources
It takes more than a shovel and a bag of ice melt to combat the harsh elements in the winter. You need a maintenance company with significant manpower and machinery. Proper snow and ice maintenance providers should have tools, such as snow plows, that can clear snow faster than traditional methods. In addition to equipment, it’s important to employ sufficient manpower. Your maintenance provider should employ enough staff to be able to service your property for the amount of time it needs.

Ice management
Slips and falls on winter ice are a property manager’s worst nightmare. A reputable winter maintenance company will prioritize your tenant’s safety as much as you do. Find a company that is using the latest in ice prevention. It takes a knowledgeable provider who knows that preventing ice is just as important as melting it.

Even there, after the storm
