Winter is here, and with plenty of snow, ice and slush on the way, it’s important to make sure your business is prepared to meet the challenges of the colder months. Learn more about winter commercial property maintenance below, as well as how GDB Landscaping can help you keep on top of cold weather challenges.

Safety First

There’s no denying that Albertan winters can be harsh for Edmontonians to handle, regardless of whether you are a residential or commercial property owner. Fickle weather can lead to unexpected snowstorms or freezing rain, both of which can wreak havoc without a plan in place. The number one priority for the winter months, however, is keeping your property safe for employees, customers, and visitors. No matter how big your lot size is, slips and falls are a very real danger that need to be avoided. Protect yourself and your customers by routinely clearing snowing, chipping away any ice build up, and regularly sanding both your lot and sidewalks to allow for better traction.

Plan Ahead

One of the most important aspects of keeping your property looking its best once the snow hits is to have a maintenance plan ready in advance. While it can be tempting to put off booking any services until the first “official” snowfall, doing so more than likely won’t end up in your favour. Avoid the stress of rush bookings and higher rates by setting up your maintenance package as early as possible. That way, you can relax with the first flakes settle on the ground!

Take Everything Into Account

As we mentioned above, winter maintenance is far more than just removing snow or sanding sidewalks. To keep your commercial space in the best (and safest) condition possible, partner with a professional landscaper that can design a custom quote that meets your specific needs.
