Snow removal is your responsibility
Many business property owners are surprised to learn that clearing snow and ice from their property is the law. In addition to clearing snow and ice from their property, they must also clear adjacent sidewalks, parking spaces and steps. Failure to do so could result in hefty fines from the city or municipality. In addition, it’s important to keep your walkways, stairs, parking lots and entrance ways free of snow and ice for safety reasons. This can help reduce the likelihood of injuries to your employees, visitors, customers or post office workers. If someone were to slip and fall on ice outside your business, you could be held legally responsible. If the thought of keeping your business’ sidewalk and pathways clear makes you shiver, let us handle your commercial snow removal needs.
