Adverse winter weather conditions can wreak havoc on all kinds of businesses, but for most companies that simply isn’t convenient. This is especially true for the hospitality industry which caters not just for people looking to get away and relax for a few days or weeks, but also for business travelers.
Hotels must ensure that their properties are accessible to all customers and that the winter weather does not stop people from having a safe place to stay for the night.
For this reason, Earth Development has worked with businesses in the hospitality industry across the north-eastern United States for more than 20 years. Our team knows what it takes to keep foot traffic flowing, and to minimize the impact of snowfall and freezing temperatures.
If you run a hotel, here’s what we think you should know about hiring snow removal experts.
Trust and Reliability Is Key
Any snow removal company can make promises, but they can also fail to keep them. Trust and reliability are extremely important because the future of your company depends on whether or not snow removal experts can carry out the work they say they can.
At Earth Development, we work with every customer to develop a strategy that suits them. With our seasonal packages, we attend your property before, during, and after winter events to minimize the amount of snow that builds up and to stop ice forming on the ground.
We work with you to ensure that the tools and machines we use don’t cause unnecessary disruption or even cause too much noise for your guests. Without that consideration, and without a team that turns up every single day during the freezing weather, your business will suffer.
The Right Fleet Of Vehicles and Tools
Without the right fleet of vehicles and a suitable range of tools, no snow removal company can offer a truly customized experience.
What’s more, a snow removal company should also own every single piece of equipment. Some agencies prefer to rent machinery only in the winter months to reduce costs, but this can cause major disruption in the event that those machines break down.
A reliable snow removal company that owns an entire fleet of vehicles can ensure good contingency, meaning your hotel business won’t be disrupted by a broken down snowplow.
And, a range of tools is necessary to ensure that every part of your hotel remains safe for your customers to use. This ranges from shovels and snowblowers to snowblowers and other large tools. Earth Development allows you to visit our local HQ and see the fleet of vehicles we have ready to help you this winter.
Deicing Is As Important As Snow Removal
Remember that deicing is just as important as removing snow. This involves using salt and other reagents to treat outdoor surfaces in preparation for freezing weather. With these agents on the ground, falling snow won’t bond to the ground quite as easily.
Not only that, but the deicer means that the melting snow won’t freeze as easily. At Earth Development, we have a variety of agents that can be deployed depending on your specific needs.
We’ll Keep Your Hotel Running This Winter
Winter weather shouldn’t stop customers from having a safe and comfortable night of rest at your hotel.
