Generally, customers call us when the snow and ice (if any is present) begin to become a hindrance or dangerous for daily activities like walking to your car, driving, and letting pets out. This could only be a dusting for some people, while others may wait until there are several inches of snow on the ground before requesting our services.
With winter just around the corner, you need to have a professional snow removal team at the ready so when the first snow falls – as magical as it may be while it’s coming down – you’ll be ready to deal with its aftermath.
Sooner is always better when it comes to getting rid of unwanted snow on your driveway, curb and yard. The longer it stays on the ground, the greater potential it has to thaw and refreeze as black ice.
The first thing to know about Leaf Police LLC snow removal services is that we always use the right tool for the job. This doesn’t necessarily mean the biggest or most aggressive tool we have on hand.
We tailor each service to the situation, using the following equipment:
Plastic Shovels – Plastic doesn’t damage turf and scrape decorative rock work the way metal does, so we only use plastic shovels to work on delicate and hard to reach areas.
Snow Blowers – It’s not necessary to use heavy machinery on every job. For smaller jobs or for a light dusting of snow, we are often able to use snow blowers to remove snow from driveways and walkways. This is safe, quick, and effective.
Next, you need to know which services are right for you. We offer all of the following for our residential customers:
Snow plowing is a service that only includes pushing the snow off heavily traveled surfaces. You often see commercial properties do snow plowing, just having all the snow pushed to one side of their parking lot to ensure that customers and employees can traverse the parking lot and walkways safely.
This service is available to residential property owners as well.
Snow removal happens when we plow the snow to make your property livable again, then we physically remove the excess snow from the area. We take this snow off your property so it doesn’t pile up and look bad, but another reason to remove it is to prevent melting and refreezing, creating a dangerous ice situation.
De-icing is commonly done with salt, but we also use special de-icing products when we are working near your home or on any surface you want to protect, as ice can discolor and weaken certain surfaces.
This service is sometimes included with snow plowing, but you need to specify with your snow removal team whether you want it done or not.
The final thing you need to know about snow removal is how we calculate cost. These are three contributing factors that can affect the cost of your snow removal service.
Time – Time is money, as the old saying goes. And it’s true in most service related fields. Every minute we spend clearing snow for you is time we are not spending on another job, so we have to calculate our fees to reflect that.
Amount – The amount of snowfall is one contributor, and the square footage of the space to be cleared is another. We base most of our estimates on the size of the job, then the other contributing factors come into play.
Difficulty – Driveways that are steep, extra wide, or uneven are harder to plow that short, flat drives. A complex snow plow service not only requires specific equipment, but, more importantly, it demands a highly trained and experienced team. We employ the very best because that’s the standard we set for our customers.
Snow plow services are available for both residential and commercial customers. You may need to have your property snow plowed several times each winter, or one service may get you through. Either way, we highly recommend these services for several great reasons.
Professional snow removal is necessary to keep your home looking nice during the winter. Attractive, uniform appearance is one of the main reason many HOA’s require snow removal.
