Don't Let Winter Catch You Off Guard This Year!

b2ap3_thumbnail_StCloudSnowRemoval.jpg

 

The 2013-14 winter season featured historically low wind chill temperatures and staggering snowfall totals. If last winter taught us anything, it's that it pays to be prepared.  Unlike most snow removal services, Emerald Companies (St. Cloud MN) goes the extra mile by doing more than simply pushing excess snow onto the curb. Although salt may be present on your driveway or sidewalks, it might not be melting anything. The salt that Emerald Companies uses is appropriate for the cold temperatures here in Central Minnesota.

The experts at Emerald Companies (St Cloud MN) carefully apply specially formulated salt that prevents the formation of ice patches and  minimizes your chances of having to deal with difficult, icy conditions in the driveway and elsewhere around your home. Don't just shovel the snow this year! Be prepared for anything winter throws at you with help from Emerald Companies (St. Cloud, MN). Give us a call at 320-251-5296 for more information.

Winter Safety Tips for your Home and Business from Emerald Companies

b2ap3_thumbnail_964309_617883108231408_1360840604_o_20131115-144349_1.jpgWhen the mercury drops, stay safe! During the winter months, snow wind and ice can damage your natural gas meter and your appliance vents. Its important to keep your natural gas meters clear of snow and ice by brushing away any ice or snow that has accumulated around the meter, regulator vent and outdoor piping. All your outdoor appliance vents should be cleared of snow and ice - try to locate them before the first snow hits. A clogged vent may cause your appliance to shut down or malfunction and cause serious incidents like carbon monoxide buildup inside your building.

Call Emerald Companies today and schedule your snow removal service. We can keep you, your customers and employees safe and your business fully operational by preventing snow and ice build up.
