As the weather gets progressively colder, Delawareans must prepare for all of the inconveniences and hazards that the season’s snow and ice will bring. Landscaping and property maintenance become even more important during the fall and winter months, and ice and snow removal are particularly vital for health and safety. Piles of fluffy snow may look pretty, but they can also harbor significant safety risks. Consider investing in snow removal this year to avoid these common hazards.
Snow Removal Keeps Piles of Snow Out of the Way
Would you be able to move about freely and get to everything you need to after a snowstorm? If you’re not sure, snow removal services should be on your radar. Piles of snow (either left behind by plows or deposited naturally) can get in the way. At best, these snowdrifts are minor annoyances that make getting out of the house, to your car, or around sidewalks a challenge. At worst, these obstacles can obstruct important signs and fire hydrants, block access during emergencies, and present slippery patches for passersby to slip on.
Watch Out for Icy Conditions When Melting Snow Refreezes
Piles of snow may seem like harmless byproducts of winter weather that will melt over time. However, many people do not consider the perils of the freeze-thaw cycle. When piles of snow melt, they can distribute torrents of water throughout the surrounding area. When temperatures drop once more, this water freezes into dangerous ice. Even the most unassuming pile of snow at the edge of your yard can melt and refreeze into a perilous patch of ice on your sidewalk or yard.
Snow Removal Keeps Potential Accidents to a Minimum
Keeping accidents to a minimum is ideal, especially for property owners who often face challenges with liability for on-site injuries. Minimizing risk in any area is preferred for most home and business owners, and snow removal helps cut down on all kinds of potential liability nightmares. Visitors can slip on snow or face issues with accessibility. Children playing in piles of snow can injure themselves — or worse, they may be hidden from view of oncoming traffic.
