Downers Grove Snow Removal Specialists

Downers Grove is a friendly, charming village that feels urban and suburban at the same time and attracts a lot of families. It’s not immune to bad winter weather, however, and can get up to 37 inches of snowfall each year, plus dozens of smaller events where snow and ice can create dangerous and inconvenient conditions. 

Dealing with snow and ice storms is just a fact of life in Downers Grove — but it’s much easier if you work with snow removal experts. At Ware Landscaping and Snow Removal, we employ experienced snow professionals with over a decade of experience managing snow and ice on residential and commercial properties throughout Downers Grove and Northeastern Illinois. Our zero-tolerance, full-season snow removal and ice control services can help you keep your property safe and give you peace of mind this winter.

Our Downers Grove Snow Removal Services

We provide snow removal solutions that focus on making your property safe and accessible. You could spend hours shoveling snow yourself, and risk getting hurt or having more snow accumulate later — or you could have a team of professionals with high-grade equipment take care of it for you.

As a home or business owner, you have a responsibility to keep your property clear of snow and ice so your family, your customers, your employees, or people simply passing by aren’t at risk of slipping and falling.

When you use our premium snow removal and ice control services, you get more than a clear driveway or parking lot. You get reassurance that the snow is taken care of, and that the job has been done well.

Zero-Tolerance Snow Removal 

We have a zero-tolerance snow removal policy, meaning we come to your property and start clearing snow every time there’s a snow event. Our team keeps an eye on the snow radar to know when snow will fall and prepares accordingly.

Plowing

We can clear parking lots or other large areas with our plow trucks, which are operated by experienced and knowledgeable drivers.

Shoveling

For sidewalks, walkways, or smaller outdoor passages, our crews use shovels to ensure all the snow gets removed and the passage is safe to walk on.

De-Icing

Ice control is included in our services and for some snow events, we’ll use de-icer beforehand to help prevent as much snow from accumulating as possible.

Monitoring

We stay ahead of winter storms by monitoring the weather forecast so you don’t have to. We make sure to arrive on your property in a timely manner.

Non-Corrosive De-Icer

We’re proud to offer our customers a non-corrosive de-icing agent, Safe Paw, which is safe for kids, pets, and the environment.

Our goal is making your property safe and accessible again so we’ll free up key access points like driveways, front steps, entrances, and exits.

Full-Season Contracts

You can reserve our team for the entire winter with our full-season contract. We offer a standard one-year and a loyalty priced three-year contract. Each contract locks in our service, but you only pay “per push” after we come out on a job.

Set and Forget Service

Once we know a winter storm is coming, we’ll deploy automatically, so there’s no need to contact us. You can rest assured you’re getting zero-tolerance snow and ice protection, which means you can go about your day.

Downers Grove Commercial Snow Removal

A bad winter storm can be a huge liability for a business. If your facility gets snowed in and you can’t open up for a day, it’s lost revenue and lost wages for your employees. For businesses that have to remain open and accessible, such as hospitals and nursing homes, too much snow and ice can be a severe issue for your patients or residents.

When your property is covered in snow or ice, you not only risk losing business but you also risk someone slipping, falling, and getting hurt. Winter storms shouldn’t be something that causes you stress. When a snow event starts, you should be able to rely on snow removal and ice control professionals to take care of it so you can keep focusing on running your business.

Downers Grove Residential Snow Removal

If you live in Downers Grove, you know how brutal winters can be. In this part of Illinois, lots of snowfall is unavoidable. The inconvenience of shoveling snow or dealing with a frozen driveway is avoidable, however, if you hire a residential snow removal team.

Once you hire our services, you don’t have to worry about anything. We deploy on our own when a snow event starts, and you can rely on our experts to do a thorough job with clearing your property.

Snow Removal FAQs

Why should I hire a professional snow removal company?

Although you can shovel snow or put down salt yourself, it can take a very long time and you may end up injuring yourself. It’s also likely that you don’t have professional equipment to deal with snow or ice more efficiently. A snow removal company can work faster and get the job more thoroughly than you, simply because it has more resources — better equipment and more people — to work on it.

When you hire a snow removal company like Ware Landscaping, you don’t have to sacrifice your time or health to get rid of the snow on your property. You also ensure your home or business is safe and accessible to everyone who passes through it.

Does the Village of Downers Grove take care of snow plowing?

Yes, the Village of Downers Grove’s plow trucks will plow, but they only do the public streets, as well as public parking lots and sidewalks in the downtown district. The roadways that get plowed first are those with the highest traffic volume, those next to schools, and those leading to Good Samaritan Hospital. Only after these roadways are clear will the village start on residential roads, finishing cul-de-sacs and dead ends last.

While the village of Downers Grove may take care of your street, it won’t clear away snow from your driveway or private parking lot. The best way to ensure these areas are safe without having to shovel them yourself is to hire a team of snow removal experts.

What about 2” trigger contracts?

Ware offers a premium service with our zero-tolerance, full-season, set and forget contracts. We cannot provide you an adequate level of quality and safety with lesser contracts.
