Ware Landscaping offers snow removal services to a variety of clients. We can help you if you live in a suburb, an urban area, or run an apartment complex. We also provide snow removal and de-icing to businesses, community managers, and property managers. Our services to areas around Chicago, Naperville, and Dupage county include:

  • Residential Snow Removal
  • Commercial Snow Removal

We are proud to offer our clients the application of Safe Paw, a de-icing alternative to salt. Safe Paw is noncorrosive and safer for pets and children than traditional de-icing methods. Additionally, it does not harm the environment, and our specialists can use it around plants and greenery of all types.

It’s no secret that snow, ice, and slush are an extreme inconvenience when they block in our cars and cover our walk ways and the areas around Chicago, Naperville, and DuPage county see quite a bit of snow and ice from November to April each year. These winter conditions can also be incredibly hazardous. If you live in a neighborhood hit particularly hard by a storm, you might miss an important day at work because you’re held up shoveling your drive. If you own a business property, a patron could sue you they slipped and fell in your icy parking lot. There are also worse possibilities.

Whether you’re the owner of a company or a private citizen, you could get seriously injured trying to remove snow from your property yourself. Each year far too many people suffer broken bones, dehydration, and heart attacks while struggling with snow and ice clearance. Hiring a team of snow removal professionals can not only save you time and effort—it can help you avoid dangerous accidents.

Snow Damage in Illinois

Just a few years ago, Chicago saw a whopping 82 inches of snow. Statistically, the past few winters have been normal, with 51 inches two years ago and 31 inches last year. However, it’s important to remember that these cumulative numbers fail to tell the whole story. Even in comparatively mild winters, heavy snowfall during a single storm can still disrupt traffic or even shut down transportation all over the state. For example, an intense winter storm hit Chicago on January 31, 2015, and lasted until February 2. Over 19 inches of snow covered the O’Hare International Airport. More snow fell during this one incident than in all of that winter’s previous storms combined.

These winter storms can burst seemingly out of nowhere, leaving residential and commercial property owners at a loss. According to the State Climatologist Office for Illinois, around five intense winter storms typically hit the state each year between November and April. Of course, that’s just an average.

Winter storms can involve snow, cold temperatures, ice, high winds, and freezing rain. Any of these conditions can result in costly property damage. Additionally, winter storms pose a variety of dangers for people. Individuals can find themselves trapped in their homes without adequate supplies or heat. Every year, people are injured while shoveling their walks and driveways. The Center for Injury Research and Policy estimates that around 11,500 people wind up in the hospital because of injuries directly related to snow shoveling. The hard labor isn’t the only danger offered by ice-coated roads. The Federal Highway Administration reports that more than 1,300 people die in automotive crashes caused by icy roads each year. It’s best to make sure your property is safe by keeping it clear of snow, ice, and slush. The safest way to do this is to hire an experienced snow removal company.

Residential Snow Removal

There’s no getting around it. Making sure our homes are safe and accessible in the winter takes up an infuriating amount of time and effort. Most of us have been there—an entire evening lost to clearing a path to the car and getting snow out of the driveway. Sometimes we simply wake up to more snow in the morning, left there by another storm or city road-clearing. Imagine the countless hours you could be saving by hiring a quick, professional snow removal service.

The thorough snow removal services we offer include:

  • Removing snow entirely from driveways and other vehicle paths
  • Clearing walk ways and sidewalks
  • De-icing driveways, walk ways, sidewalks, landings, and other areas
  • Snow removal for landings or other spaces specified by the client
  • De-icing with non-toxic Safe Paw, a safer salt alternative

At Ware Landscaping, we understand that your time and your energy are valuable things. That’s why we prioritize snow removal with minimal fuss and maximum speed. Our professional team understands how to efficiently clear access points and remove the offending snow from your property. We can make your property safer and more accessible so that you can spend time with your family, catch up on work, or actually enjoy the peaceful sight of snowfall around your home.

Commercial Snow Removal

If you own or manage a business property in the Chicago, Naperville, or DuPage County areas, you can benefit from our snow removal and de-icing services. When snow prohibits the small act of entering the premises, your business can severely suffer. Most companies cannot easily withstand a forced closure of several hours, and sometimes heavy snow can linger for days. Additionally, you are legally responsible for the safety of visitors to your property. If a customer or an employee slips on a patch of ice and sustains an injury, you could be held legally liable. It’s altogether safer to hire a trusted snow removal and de-icing team to handle the winter slush around your business. Professional snow removal can even wind up saving you money by making your company readily available and by avoiding potential legal issues.

Snow Removal FAQs

Why should I hire a snow removal company?

Whether you are a property manager, a business owner, or a private individual, it’s important that you can get in and out of your property quickly, easily, and safely. Many people attempt to handle the fallout of winter storms on their own, opting to spend numerous hours struggling with shoveling and de-icing. Unfortunately, even seasoned individuals can miss patches of slush, and such errors can be dangerous. Additionally, most people do not have the tools to completely remove snow from their property, running the risk of more buildup and blockage. An experienced snow removal company has the tools, the skills, and the power to make your property immeasurably safer, more functional, and more accessible.

What makes Ware Landscaping a good choice for snow removal services?

With over a decade of experience, our skilled snow removal team has seen some of the worst winters on record in Northeastern Illinois. We are familiar with the properties in the area, so we can anticipate common problems and challenges. Additionally, we have the heavy equipment and tools necessary to carry through with even the toughest snow removal job. We are also sensitive to the safety of pets, children, and the environment. This concern prompts us to offer Safer Paw as a salt-alternative de-icer for our clients.

Who’s responsible for clearing the roads and sidewalks of snow?

That largely depends on the ordinances where you live. Many businesses are responsible for clearing sidewalks adjacent to their property. Though cities do clear major roads, they prioritize main highways and emergency routes, leaving your neighborhood road covered in snow for hours while the city works elsewhere.
