Continue reading to learn more about athletics and coming snowplowing, and about our snow management services.

Athletic Field Snowplowing

With spring sports starting soon, it’s important to have a snow removal plan to ensure your field will be safe and ready to play on even if your area gets some late-winter snow. Snow removal is also crucial for preventing ice from forming, as ice formation makes the turf more susceptible to damages and is dangerous for players. However, turf fields require specific equipment and techniques, and the wrong tools can result in faulty plowing operations for areas on your field. For example, large pieces of equipment should not be allowed on synthetic turf fields, and most turf manufacturers recommend that a stationary load does not exceed 300 lbs per square foot.

Before hiring a company to take care of your athletic field snowplowing, it’s essential to ensure they are right for the job and have experience will field and plowing experience. While some contractors say they have experience with synthetic turf fields, it doesn’t always mean that they are experts in plowing snow. Some companies may have new equipment that is designed for removing snow from synthetic turf surfaces, such as a snow thrower that can launch snow up to 70 feet. The experts at SPS have experience in snow removal on all types of athletic surfaces, so no matter what you play on, we can remove the snow efficiently to keep the event on schedule.

Commercial Snow Management

Commercial snow removal is essential for keeping properties safe for customers, employees, and tenants. Snow plowing services will clear the snow and ice from your parking lot, sidewalks, and other paved areas to ensure your property is safe to drive and walk on after a storm. With snow removal services, property/business owners not only do their job of protecting visitors, but they also avoid potential accidents and lawsuits.

SPS starts commercial snow management services in November and continues to offer our services until the last snow of the season. Every piece of equipment is always inspected from head to toe to assure SPS is ready to manage your property without any issues.
