Ah, those St. Louis winters! They can be difficult to deal with. The cold temperatures, ice, and snow are enough to make you want to stay inside and hibernate.
But of course, not many of us have the luxury of taking winters off. Most people need to get out and work. But the snow and ice can make working conditions difficult. It can slow down production and make for dangerous conditions.
When snow and ice get in the way of working conditions, you may want to send some workers out with a shovel and salt, but to really, effectively get rid of the elements, it’s best to get in a St. Louis deicing professional. It may be more expensive, but here are some ways the service will pay off in the long run.
Slips and Falls
If you don’t deice properly, customers, clients, and employees can slip and fall on ice when entering your building. Sending workers out to remove ice can also result in injuries.
If someone becomes injured because they slipped on ice when they were on your business property, they can end up suing you. This will cost you a pretty penny that would have been better invested in a deicing service.
It Can Do Damage
If you have ice on your property, it can result in costly damage.
If concrete is already damaged, the ice can melt into the surface to make damage worse. Any salt used on the ice will also result in damage as the chemicals from the salt will absorb into concrete to cause pitting and cracking.
If you have a lawn on your property, the ice will cause your soil to lose moisture and your grass will dehydrate and die.
If excess moisture from ice gets tracked inside the building it can stain or dry out wood or tile.
Inhibits Work Production
When there is snow or ice on your property, it can slow down production. It can block access to necessary outlets and fixtures. Workers will tread slowly and carefully trying to get work done without becoming injured.
Furthermore, if you send workers out to deal with snow removal, it will impede the work they may have been doing otherwise.
