Ice Melt Services in Calgary & Edmonton
With the frequent fluctuations between sub-zero and milder temperatures in Calgary and Edmonton, winter conditions are prime for ice formation. Every winter, home and business owners have to deal with ice forming in the yard, on driveways, on footpaths, in parking lots, and one the roads.
This can be dangerous for you, your family, employees, or visitors (including city crews such as garbage collectors and mail carriers). How do you best prevent hazardous ice build-up around your property and keep things safe?
Our crews only use child- and animal-safe ice melt – not salt but a special chemical that works on ice without causing harm to those you live with and take care of. Scheduled visits from our professional ice removal crews ensure that the following areas of residential and commercial properties are kept ice-free even during the depths of winter:
Our professionals identify the most dangerous areas and manage ice removal to keep things safe. Ice chipping is an alternative solution for ice removal in Calgary and Edmonton, where ice has built up and needs to be cleared. We also offer sand and gravel service for difficult areas and commercial properties.
What Are The City Laws For Ice Removal
- Remove snow and ice – down to the bare surface – from public sidewalks bordering their private property within 24 hours of a snowfall ending. Owners of rental properties are responsible for arranging for snow and ice removal when they reside elsewhere.
- Remove a minimum width of 1.5 meters of snow and ice – down to the bare surface – from a public pathway bordering their property, also within 24 hours of a snowfall ending. Applicable pathways are those that run parallel and adjacent to a street, with or without separation between the pathway and street (e.g. a grass boulevard).
- Clear your sidewalk as soon as possible
- Work with your neighbours to keep sidewalks clear
- Keep your waste collection areas free of snow and ice
How Do I Keep My Sidewalks Ice-free?
Slips and falls on sidewalks are common in icy weather. Hazardous sidewalks increase your liability if there is an accident or injury caused to a member of the public. However, there is no need to stress. You can keep your sidewalks and other areas free of ice by arranging ice removal with the Yardworx team.
