Commercial Snow and Ice Management
Brummel Lawn and Landscape services commercial properties, apartment complexes, churches, and private streets. Late in fall months Brummel Lawn’s fleet manager is servicing all snow plows, salt spreaders, snow blowers, and is ordering ice melt, and rock salt for the winter ahead. From October 15 through April 15 Brummel Lawn has a weather service that give them up to date weather alerts, bridge decks and parking lots temperatures along with air temperatures and forecast. This has become very beneficial with the ever changing mid-west weather, and the occasional freezing mist/fog. After every storm, Brummel Lawn provides a storm report with the high and low temperature total accumulation and how we handled the event. Our phones are monitored 24 hours a day 7 days a week to provide the outstanding customer service.
Brummel Lawn normal has a 1 inch initiation point. For storms that fall during the middle of the day, we will clear drive lanes, and some parking spots as possible. We will return that evening and clear the lot. Office buildings are cleared by 8 am in most cases to ensure the business can operate normally. Strip malls shopping centers, are cleared no later than 1 hour before opening so that employees can get to work and have the stores ready to open. On apartment complexes all drive lanes, clubhouse, and open parking spots will be done by the morning commute and during the day Brummel Lawn will return at the complexes request to clear the parking stalls.
Parking Lot Treatment (Salt Application)
Brummel Lawn uses high grade rock salt. Salt is applied after plowing is complete. Brummel Lawn and Landscape will pre-treat if freezing rain/sleet, or drizzle is forecasted and the property manager/owner agrees that pre-treatment would be the best. Salt is also applied when icy conditions exist. All times are documented when Brummel Lawn is treating your property.
Brummel Lawn has separate crews that only service the sidewalk in their zone. All sidewalks and steps are clear from edge to edge, and then we place a concrete safe ice melt down to prevent any refreezing and slick spots. During ice events ice melt is placed down and rechecked to ensure that the sidewalks are safe and ice free. After the ice event Brummel Lawn rechecks all walks to ensure that they are 100% ice free.
Brummel Lawn and Landscape LLC have crews that are dedicated to maintenance provided properties. We clear communities as small as 10 homes. These properties are done with tractors and bobcats. The driveways, entry walks and public sidewalks are cleared as requested. Brummel Lawn and Landscape can customize to your needs. These crews will clear the snow after the storm has stopped. If needed, as with the blizzards the past two winters, we can clear areas multiple times.
