Residential Snow Removal
While you can customize any snow removal package, our standard residential service includes snow removal from your driveway, sidewalks and walkway to the front door. If desired, we can apply a premium ice melt product (safer for concrete and vegetation) to your concrete for an additional charge. Request an estimate today and you can forget about waking up early in the freezing cold to shovel your driveway before work.
All of our equipment is top of the line and is always kept in perfect running order-preventative maintenance is critical to the success of any professional snow organization. All our trucks are late model and equipped with the best equipment available. Our snow technicians receive extensive training to ensure premium quality results. We stock extensive supplies of all our deicing products from our bulk parking lot enhanced rock salt to our variety of different walkway deicers to ensure we never have a shortage.
In an industry that operates exclusively when environmental conditions are at their worst, safety is paramount. It is also where most snow contractors in the Madison, WI area cut corners and ignore the potential consequences. Safety education is both respected and practiced by our snow technicians through regular scheduled safety meetings. ALL of our plow trucks and skid loaders have flashing strobe lights to ensure our presence is noticed, even in low visibility conditions. We convey to our customers our safety recommendations for both our technicians and for their individual properties specific requirements.
While ensuring a safe working environment always comes first in our snow operations, we are also always thinking of our environment. In 2005 we started using enhanced deicers, both in place of standard parking lot rock salt and in place of traditional ice melt products for walkways and sidewalks. Three major objectives are achieved by these products: First, these products are more effective that standard rock salts. This means less product is necessary to achieve the same results. Therefore less is used each application and there is less runoff to watersheds (this also translates to a cost savings!). They also are more accurate to their targets due to less bounce and scatter (this is usually significant in truck mounted salt spreaders with standard rock salt). Second, they contain corrosion inhibitors. This means the product that is used has less effect on concrete deterioration, landscaped areas and other physical objects. Third, there is a small residual effect that can carry over to the next snow event. When this happens, snow and ice is cleared more effectively allowing for less product to be used after the second snow event. Please call us for further explanation on our premium deicers and how you can benefit from them.
