Idaho Falls winters can be brutal, and snow and ice buildup is a common problem for properties both commercial and residential. As Simmons Sports & Services watches the weather get cold, the tree leaves turn orange, yellow, and cover the parking lot, we know it’s about time to start our Idaho Falls snow removal services. When it comes to keeping your lot, roads, and property safe during the harsh Idaho Falls winter, we have all of the right experts and equipment for the job.
The importance of snow removal in Idaho Falls can’t be overstated. The dangers that come with harsh winter conditions are not just limited to city or country driving, but also extend to work zone movement. Strains and slips often come with trying to remove snow from your property yourself, and trying to make repairs on your property surrounded by ice and snow can lead to a higher risk of electrocution. Snow removal in Idaho Falls is of obvious importance for the convenience it provides to these commercial properties, but the added safety is the most important factor. Shoveling snow, especially during times of heavy and continuous snowfall, can be strenuous, and the cold weather makes the strain even more intense. This leads to an increased risk of:
Certain people simply can’t risk any of this. Workers need to be able to do their jobs, and customers need to be safe. Both workers and customers alike are struck every year by vehicles or mobile equipment due to snow and ice buildup. Our snow removal in Idaho Falls will help maintain a safe work zone that will keep things productive and lower the chances of injury and lawsuits.
Another major reason for our Idaho Falls snow removal services is the problems that heavy snow and ice can create for the integrity of your property, particularly your home’s gutters. Ice often builds up in people’s gutters, which prevents melted snow from flowing properly down your spouts. This is usually what creates large icicles, as the runoff flows over the gutters and drips down the side of your property. The weight caused by all of that frozen ice can cause damage to your gutters, and is also a potential hazard for anyone outside your property.
Ice dams also come with snow buildup. This is what happens when snow builds on your roof and then melts over time, which happens even if the temperature outside remains below freezing, as the heat from your home warms it up. This melted snow then enters the rain gutters and re-freezes, thus creating an ice dam and preventing future melted snow from draining off your home properly. Over time, water begins to seep down into your home and causes damage to your roof, fascia, and soffit.
Another thing that comes with snow buildup is structural damage. Roofs have caved in due to excessive snow build up on both commercial and residential properties, and trees have been damaged because of this as well. Tree damage can also directly lead to building damage, as trees have been known to become so damaged that they fall onto the roof.
Our Idaho Falls snow removal services will help prevent water damage, structural damage, and tree damage. We will make sure you don’t have to come home to find water leaking down your walls or a tree in your living room.
