Winter is in full swing, and that means snow is menacing all of Chicago’s home and business owners. In Chicago, business owners are responsible for ensuring that there’s no snow and ice outside their business. There are legal reasons behind this, stated in Chicago’s municipal code (Municipal Code of Chicago – 4-4-310 & 10-8-180). Essentially, snow must be removed from public areas and walkways for the safety of Chicago’s pedestrians. If you own a business, chances are the property is located near a public sidewalk, roadway, or path of another kind. Apart from safety and legal obligations, clearing your commercial property of snow is good for business. In this post from the Snow Pushers Chicago blog, we’ll go over some of the benefits of removing snow from your commercial property.
When snow and ice builds up, it can be hazardous to your potential customers. Whether in a car or on foot, ice and snow is dangerous. Having a car crash into your business, or a slip and fall outside can be costly and can put a real hinder on the on-goings of the business. This makes snow removal incredibly critical. But, you’re busy operating your business. It’s best to outsource the work to a snow removal company like Snow Pushers Chicago. For 15 years, we’ve been providing reliable and effective snow removal in Northside Chicago and the rest of the city.
If your business has 2 feet of snow blocking the entrance, most of your potential customers will assume your closed. Don’t follow yourself – nobody is going to trek through that wet, dirty snow to get into your business. Having the entranceway of your business clear of snow and ice is like having an open sign posted outside. It’s much more inviting than a mound of cold snow blocking the front door.
