Expert snow and ice clearing
When you think of winter in Canada, you probably think of snow. Dealing with heavy snowfall each year is a reality for most Canadians, but not everyone is up to the task. Stay safe and cozy inside and leave the snow and ice clearing to us. Yard Smart professionals will come to your property and remove snow and ice.
Depending on the space and how much snow has fallen, we’ll use a snow plow, blower, shovels or a combination of all of those. If ice has formed beneath the snow, which makes for a hazardous situation if not properly dealt with, we’ll remove that as well. You can be rest assured that your safety is always our top of mind and your property will be in the best hands this winter.
Unlimited or on demand service
At Yard Smart we offer a number of different types of services depending on your needs. Our most popular option is a flat-rate, seasonal contract which includes unlimited service for every snowfall over 1 centimetre. This also includes service for any freezing events, like ice storms, freezing rain and flash freezes. Many customers choose a seasonal contract to ensure that their property is kept safe, clear, hazard-free and beautiful all winter long. This ensures you can get to work quickly and safely without the fuss of early morning shovelling.
We also offer on demand services. Whether your car is completely snowed in, you have a vacation planned, you have an injury or you’re simply not up to shovelling one week, our team can help. Contact us today for your free, no-obligation estimate.
Snow removal is your responsibility
Although getting roads cleared from snow and ice is the city’s responsibility, making sure that the sidewalk adjacent to your property is free of snow and ice is your obligation in most municipalities. Failure to adhere to these bylaws can result in a hefty fine.
It’s also important to keep your walkways, stairs and porch clear of snow and ice. This can help reduce the likelihood of injuries to your family, post office workers and other visitors. If someone were to slip and fall on ice outside your house, you could be held personally liable and held legally responsible. If the thought of keeping your sidewalk and pathways clear makes you shiver, contact us today!
