At Mayfair Building Services, we’ve been offering salting and snow removal services in Burnaby, BC for over 35 years.

Salting Services

When the weather hits 1℃ or lower, our team heads out to salt all the designated areas around your business. Road salting helps to prevent ice buildup on roadways by using salt (or sand) which provides traction at low temperatures. It only takes one slippery patch to create hazards that could cause an accident. As a business owner, it’s so important to always have your roadways, walkways, parking lots, ramps and steps prepared with ice melters to prevent potential incidents or injury to customers, employees and the public. With an ice maintenance schedule, you’ll never have to worry about slippery conditions around your commercial building.

For most commercial buildings, snow removal is done in these areas:

  • Driveways

Why Do I Need Snow Removal Services?

Here on the West Coast, it can be tough to predict when snow will strike, though winter in Burnaby typically starts around November and the snow season carries on through March. Because our snowfall can be so sporadic, many drivers simply don’t bother with snow tires, which can be a problem when snow and ice strikes, resulting in fender benders and property damage.

Snow removal is a necessary service in winter for drivers and pedestrians. It is a service that will ensure a safer winter for everyone in and around your business. Snow removal can increase visibility and prevent ice from building up on driving surfaces, thereby decreasing the risk of accidents and helping with traffic flow. 

Snow removal is one of the most important services in winter because it reduces risk related to slippery roads and icy surfaces. In fact, Transport Canada reports that black ice can still be found on roads with temperatures up to 4℃. Extremely slick and transparent, black ice poses a hazard to pedestrians, bikers and drivers even after sunrise.

Time Management – As a business owner or manager, you don’t have time to shovel the parking lot and sidewalks. Your priority is getting employees and visitors in and out safely and having a productive workday. Managing snow and ice takes up a lot of everyone’s time and snow can build up extremely quickly. When you hire us for professional snow removal services, you can focus on building your business rather than focusing on how to keep up with the accumulating snowfall.

Safety – If someone from your company heads out to clear the sidewalks or parking lot and slips and falls, you could be held liable for the resulting costs from that injury. At Mayfair Building Services, we’re covered by the highest tier of insurance, meaning that we can do our jobs salting your walkways, parking lot, and removing snow as needed.

Tip – Avoid passing a working snowplow as it can be dangerous for both vehicles. It’s best to stay back at least ten car lengths and be patient. For other winter driving tips, visit ICBC.ca.
