Canadian winters are merciless and Vancouver British Columbia, once known for her mild wet winters has seemingly traded damp days for frosty nights and icy mornings. Do you know that Vancouver receives more than a centimetre of snow for over 10 days of the month of December with heavy snow build up in late December and January? Even though the west coast might usually get less snow than other Canadian cities we still should be prepared for salting and other types of ice and snow removal services in Vancouver.
Unattended sidewalks and walkways during erratic snowfall and deep freeze conditions create a perfect storm for slips and falls hazards. These unintended consequences of lack of attention on the part of Metro Vancouver property owners can be compounded by financial liability for home owners and 3rd party property management companies facing claims, fines and damages. Strata building property managers, cooperatives and businesses alike risk bylaw fines averaging $750-$2000 per infraction and millions of dollars in lawsuits and damage claims during these winter months generated by individuals and insurance companies pursuing legal action in cases where owners fail to clear common sidewalks and pathways accessing the property. Thankfully Superhero Property Maintenance Inc. is your reliable winter Salting & Snow Removal Service provider. With Superhero Property Maintenance Inc. you can rest assured that common foot pathways, sidewalks, walkways parkades and driveways, are cleared and de-iced for residents, employees and the public safe passage.
