Our Chicago Snow Removal Services

We understand that your time is valuable. You don’t want to waste it shoveling snow out of your driveway or sprinkling salt all over your parking lot. That’s why we offer no-fuss snow removal services that get the job done fast. Our services are zero-tolerance, meaning that we come to your property to take care of snow and ice any time snow accumulates

Zero-Tolerance Service

We have a zero-tolerance snow removal policy, meaning that we’ll come out to your property to clear snow and ice any time snow falls. You don’t have to worry about getting up early enough to call us to come out — we’ll take care of it.

Plowing Driveways and Parking Lots

Our team operates top-of-the-line plow trucks, removing the snow from large driveways and parking lots. We’ll make your paved surfaces clear and safe to walk or drive on.

Shoveling

We use shovels and snow blowers to remove snow from sidewalks and walkways. We also put down a de-icing compound to help prevent more snow from accumulating later.

Ice Management 

We take preventive measures, such as putting down salt before a storm, to help manage the buildup of ice on your property.

Monitoring and Surveillance

Our winter maintenance team will be up and ready to go as soon as your property needs snow or ice removal thanks to our ongoing weather and property monitoring.

Non-Corrosive De-Icing

We happily offer a non-toxic de-icer called Safe Paw, which is safe for children and pets to walk on. It’s also environmentally friendly.

When we arrive on-site to clear away snow and ice, we focus on key accessibility points. We do a thorough job so that you can rest assured your driveway, parking lot, or other outdoor areas will be safe for anyone to pass through.

If we spot a potential early-morning snowfall, we’ll presalt your property so we can stay ahead of the snow and prevent even more from accumulating. In the event of a blizzard, we can come to your property multiple times to ensure it stays clear, safe, and accessible.

Full-Season Contracts

With our full-season contracts, you can rest assured that the snow and ice will be removed from your property — without you needing to take further action. Contracts available in one-year and three-year terms.

And we only bill you for the work we do for each snow event.

Set and Forget Service

No need to call us every time you need us or to measure just how much snow has fallen. Your contract with Ware guarantees we will be there, so all you have to do is get on with your day as usual.

Chicago Commercial Snow Solutions

As a business owner in Chicago, winter can be a stressful time. A big snowstorm could prevent you from opening up for several hours or even days. Icy walkways in front of your entrance can cause customers or employees to slip and fall, leaving you liable. Most companies have an action plan for how to go about operations in the event of a bad winter storm. But without professional snow removal services, that action plan is difficult to implement.

To minimize disruption to your business and prevent accidents from occurring on your premises, the smart thing to do is hire a snow removal company. Our winter maintenance team can handle all the snow, ice, and slush around your property quickly so you can get back to running your business.

Chicago Residential Snow Services

Heavy snowfall and winter storms are a fact of life for Chicago residents. Shoveling snow and melting ice can take up a frustrating amount of time — especially when more snow falls the next day and covers all your hard work. You want your home’s outdoor areas to be safe for your family to walk on and accessible so you can get in and out of your home.

There’s no getting around winter weather in Chicago, but there are better ways to deal with it.

Rather than miss a day at work because you’re snowed in or risking injury shoveling snow, hire a professional residential snow removal team. We’ll arrive at your home promptly, ready to remove the snow and ice quickly so you and your family get on with the rest of your day. We offer the same quality of premium snow removal services to residential properties as we do for commercial ones. That means you get the efficiency, reliability, and assurance of a thorough snow removal job.

Snow covers the roofs, trees, and lawns of a quiet residential street

We take care of snow at all kinds of residential properties, whether you’re in an urban or suburban neighborhood, house, or apartment building. Our services are thorough, removing snow from all the following places:

  • Sidewalks
  • Front and rear steps
  • Driveways
  • Walkways to the curb
  • Gangways
  • Garage lip
  • Personal vehicles
  • Alleyways

Snow and ice shouldn’t disrupt your daily schedule. When you call Ware Landscaping, we make sure it doesn’t.

Benefits of Snow Removal Service

Why bother with hiring a professional snow removal team for your home or business? With years of experience offering premium snow removal to Chicago properties, our service comes with a variety of benefits.

Preventing accidents

Piled up snow and ice can be a major safety hazard for you, your family, and pedestrians passing by. Dealing with the snow can also be hazardous, as thousands of people suffer from snow-shoveling injuries in the U.S. each year.

When you hire us, we take on the risk of removing snow and ice on your property because we’re trained professionals. We make it safe and help prevent accidents from occurring.

Convenience

Having somebody else come to your home or business to take care of the snow and ice for you is the ultimate convenience. You don’t have to get out your shovel and salt and start planning what you’ll say to your boss when you’re late because your driveway is covered in snow. We solve your snow problem for you so you can go about your usual day.

Complying with snow removal laws

In Chicago, property owners have to remove snow and ice within a certain time frame — but accomplishing that isn’t always doable. To stay legally compliant when it comes to winter weather, have snow removal professionals take care of the snow and ice on your property. You can ensure your business is following city ordinances and make it safer for your customers.

Professional snow removal equipment

Since most people don’t have plow trucks and professional-grade snow blowers lying around, shoveling snow is usually their only option. But shoveling snow can be hard, backbreaking work. Leave it to the professionals who have the experience and the equipment needed to remove snow more efficiently.

Preventing lost revenue or income

If your business has to close because your property isn’t safe or accessible for your customers, it can represent significant lost revenue. If you’re snowed in at home and have to miss a day of work, you can lose out on income too. Getting your property’s snow and ice cleared by an expert team ensures that your business can stay open and that you don’t miss work.

Snow Removal FAQs

Why should I hire Ware Landscaping for my snow removal service?

Our skilled snow removal team has over a decade of experience. We’ve seen some of the worst winters on record in Chicago and since we’ve been at it for a long time, we can anticipate the problems your property will have when there’s a winter storm.

Ware Landscaping also has the heavy equipment and tools necessary to deliver results on even the toughest snow removal job. We make safety a priority as well, thinking of children, pets, and the environment when choosing the materials we use and clearing away snow. That’s why we offer the use of a safe de-icing compound, Safe Paw.

Can I book your snow removal services on a recurring basis?

Yes! We offer one or three-year contracts. We come to your property any time snow falls — you don’t have to worry about calling us first. With our zero-tolerance policy, we keep your property safe, accessible, and cleared of snow and ice on a regular basis, for an entire year or more.

Do you service facilities that are open 24/7?

Yes. When you have a full-season snow removal contract with us, we monitor the weather forecast and your property, to ensure your business can keep operating during regular opening hours, even if you’re open 24/7.

Do you offer 2” trigger contracts?

Contracts that only trigger service after a certain amount of accumulation may save you money, but they tend to cause more hassle than they’re worth. Our zero-tolerance, full-season, set and forget contracts allow us to provide you with quality and safety from our permanent team of professionals.
