Commercial Snow Plowing in Connecticut
By the end of December, Connecticut residents typically see about 10 inches of snowfall. With winter rapidly approaching it’s time to consider snow removal plans for both home and businesses. Commercial snow plowing in Connecticut is essential to provide safe walkways and parking lots for valued customers as well as reduce the development of pavement cracks and potholes.
The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection reports that on average, the Northwest Hills see about 50-inches of snowfall annually, while the coastal areas of the state receive between 30 and 35-inches. Average monthly snowfalls for Connecticut winters vary. Typical snowfall amounts per month are:
- November: 2 inches
- December: 10.4 inches
- January: 12.3 inches
- February: 11.3 inches
- March: 9.3 inches
Snow can and does fall in this area during April. In 1996, Connecticut had its snowiest winter with a cumulative total of 115.2 inches, with the last snowfall of that snowy winter arriving on April 10.
Winter can be a brutal season — intense wind speeds (wind speeds are higher in winter than in summer), bone-chilling temperatures and precipitation that includes both snow and ice. It is simply not an option to allow snow and/or ice to accumulate on walks, driveways and parking lots. A Connecticut commercial property owner must remove snow and ice as well as apply sand/salt after a storm in a timely manner, according to state law. In addition, all property owners must reasonably maintain their property’s public area, which in the winter means removal of snow and ice.
Beyond the dangers of a customer or visitor slipping on a slippery walk or a cars skidding in a snow-packed lot, snow and ice accumulations plus their freeze/thaw cycle can damage pavement leading to costly repairs in the spring.
