Considering the lack of snow we experienced here in Minneapolis this season, there are still some winter weatherÂ hazardsÂ we need to remember. Â This is especially true with the frequent rise and fall of temperatures that creates Â accumulation of ice on sidewalks, stairs and parking lots.
Whether you are a homeowner or a business owner, it is your responsibility to keep those areas safe for those who want to enter your business, walk down the sidewalk in front of your house, or deliver your mail.Â Anytime we have melt during the day and sub-freezing temps at night, it can create potential slippery conditions in the morning.Â This dangerous situation can be dealt with using de-icing materials – mostly in the form of salt.
Parkway Lawn ServiceÂ De-Icing Risk Management has customers who contract with us for regular de-icing applications when these potentiallyÂ hazardousÂ conditionsÂ exist. Â As weather warrants, we will apply de-icing materials to the sidewalks, steps and driveways of Â homes and businesses to help with ice melt. This process can help reduce your liability for accidents and create conditions that are safer for you, your families and customers.Â A quote from one of our customers, who had beenÂ previouslyÂ sued over someone who slipped and was injured in their parking lot, said it best when stated â€œItâ€™s cheap insurance,â€ (describing the de-icing service that we do frequently for them).
We completed industry coursework Â â€˜Voluntary Environmental Certification â€“ Snow and Ice Control Best Practicesâ€™. Â This course Â certificate was sponsored by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Â This updates us with the latest regulations that concern effects on the environment.
Whether you do it yourself, or want Parkway Lawn Service to do the de-icing service for you – keep in mind the danger of injury to your families, customers and others when icy, wintryÂ conditions are present.
