Save Your Business Time, Money, And Hassle With Snow Plowing Services
Michigan’s winters have the reputation of being unpredictable. One day it’s 40 degrees and sunny, and the next, we’re knee-deep in snow. If you run a business, you know how annoying and time-consuming it is to clear sidewalks, driveways, and parking lots of all that powder. And depending on the size of your property, that task could take multiple hours by yourself. There’s a better way to handle things. As the old saying goes: work smarter, not harder. Rather than leaving snow removal to yourself or your staff, consider hiring PPM Tree Service & Arbor Care professionals to handle it for you.
The Perks Of Hiring Professional Snow Removal Services
Free Up Your To-Do List
This is crucial for small or medium-sized businesses that may not have the staff, equipment, or resources to get the job done efficiently. Our winter days are already short enough, and having to dig out your parking lot from heavy snowfall is salt in the wound. When you and your staff must spend time shoveling, that’s time away from the actual running of your business, and therefore a loss of valuable time. Instead, you can clear up your to-do list faster by letting the PPM professionals clear your property.
Impress Your Customers
They say you only get one chance to make an excellent first impression. The truth is, before your customers meet your friendly staff before they glimpse your fantastic sales and discounts, before they see how sincere you are about providing high-quality customer service, they will see how good (or not) you are at maintaining your outdoor landscaping. And part of that responsibility means clearing walkways, parking lots, and paths of dangerous snow and ice. And while snow-free parking lots don’t guarantee a sale, they don’t put customers in a bad mood before walking through the door! When customers trudge through snow, slip on ice, or generally feel inconvenienced setting foot on your property, it doesn’t make a good first impression.
Snow Removal Leads To Workman’s Compensation
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2016, there were over 20,000 workplace slip and fall injuries related to snow or ice – all required at least one day to recover. By keeping your property cleared, you’ll avoid costly payouts for students, faculty, staff, employees, etc.
Snow Is Heavy
Especially the wet kind that makes for good snowmen and snowball fights. As fit or in shape as we think we are, all that snow and ice takes a toll on our back, shoulders, elbows, and knees – all larger joints that cause a great deal of pain when irritated. Even pushing snow blowers can be strenuous – especially if they aren’t self-propelled.
Medical Offices Need Extra Help
Anyone working in the medical field knows how devastating a fall can be – especially for seniors, who are the most likely to fall. Decreased vision, balance, and bone density + icy conditions = life-changing injuries and hospitalizations. And even for younger folks, trying to catch yourself as you fall can result in twisted ankles and strained wrists. In addition to elderly patients, medical staff like EMTs and paramedics are more vulnerable to slip and falls since they are outside transporting patients and therefore more exposed to snow and icy conditions. PPM Tree & Arbor Care experts will make sure that patients have a clear path to the hospital, medical office, or care facility.
Keep Your Business Cleaner
It’s the height of the holiday season, which means customers are hitting the stores hard. When parking lots aren’t plowed, those customers will track in all that gross snow and ice where it will wind up on your floor – creating an indoor slip and fall hazard and an unsightly mess of dirty puddles. You’ll either have to mop it up or install fans and blowers to evaporate the excess water – leading to more time and effort on your part.
Keep Customer Numbers Steady
When a parking lot is covered in snow, customers will do their best to park within the lines, making things difficult. When customers are forced to guess where the lines are, they might accidentally take up more than one space. Fewer spaces mean fewer customers can park in your lot, which means you aren’t getting the maximum number of patrons as you could be.
Avoid Issues With Tenants
Nothing ruins the holiday season like a lawsuit from a tenant because they slipped and fell on your property. The more tenants you have living in your complex, the higher the chances that someone could injure themselves on snowy or icy parking lots, sidewalks, or walkways. And you also need to consider future tenants. Walking across a parking lot that is poorly plowed or not plowed at all is highly annoying. You don’t want potential renters to be in a bad mood when viewing your property. It might leave them with a bad taste in their mouths and influence them to look elsewhere.
