Serving Mississauga, Oakville, Brampton, & Milton
Having the snow removed from your property in a timely manner is crucial during a cold Canadian winter.
At Breakaway Landscaping, we have been helping commercial properties and condominiums keep their property clear of snow and ice for 14 years. We have the best equipment and a team that will arrive at your property in a timely manner to ensure your property is safe. Your parking lots will be ready for your customers and staff, and your walkways and steps will be salted and slip-free. We understand you have a responsibility to your community, employees, customers and tenants to ensure they can access your building safely.
Snow must be cleared within 12 hours of snowfall and must be done properly to ensure safe access for both pedestrians and vehicles. If you rent your property to tenants, it is still the responsibility of the owner to ensure ice and snow is cleared, even if you have an agreement with the tenant to do the clearing.
We can ensure your property is cleared so you are worry-free when the snow falls.
Commercial Snow Removal
Many landlords and businesses are unaware of how important it is to clear away snow and ice on their property. It is the law for property owners, including commercial and industrial owners to ensure the ice and snow is cleared on their property as well as from:
- Nearby/adjacent sidewalks
- Parking spaces
- Ramps and landings
Industrial Snow Removal
Industrial buildings also have rules surrounding snow removal including areas of the yard where people work or that must be accessed. These areas must be cleared of snow and ice within 24 hours of a snowfall to make it safe and accessible for people and vehicles.
Let our team manage the snow so you can manage your business.
Our commercial plowing team offers a fleet of snow plows ready to head out and manage your commercial plowing needs. We are committed to completing each job as efficiently as possible to ensure snow is removed within the time required by law. You can feel safe knowing your property will be free of hazards that can lead to accidents. This protects you from potential lawsuits that could find you negligent for not providing snow removal.
Fines for Uncleared Snow and Ice
Clearing snow and ice is not just the right thing to do, it is also necessary if you want to avoid fines. People can call the city to complain if your property poses a danger, which can lead to costly fines for as much as $570 for each offence. Further fines can be added when you have not cleared snow in public areas such as sidewalks adjacent to your property if the city has not cleared them within 12 hours. It might not seem fair, but it is the law. We can ensure your property is always free of snow and ice in a timely manner.
