Ensuring safe access to pedestrian walkways, steps, handicap ramps, and building entrances correlates to a reduction of slip-and-fall accidents. While many of our competitors shy away from providing sidewalk clearing services, we recognize that such services are essential to a comprehensive maintenance program and have invested heavily in this area. We utilize dedicated sidewalk personnel who have received extensive training, site-specific instruction, and are supervised by an on-site sidewalk captain. We have invested in specialized equipment and machines for sidewalks including walk-behind spreaders, snow-caster shovels, and Toro Groundsmaster machines. We apply highly-effective de-icing materials on sidewalks; able to melt snow or ice in temperatures as low as -35 degrees Fahrenheit while still being eco-friendly.
