HYPERLINK “https://www.groundhog.org/” Punxsutawney Phil just predicted that we’ll have six more weeks of winter, which means there’s plenty more snow on the way. Clearing all that precipitation can be difficult, time consuming and, if not done properly, even dangerous.

For 23 years, Quench Irrigation has been helping big and small businesses remove snow and manage ice in an organized and efficient manner.

We subscribe to a professional weather service that gives accurate snowfall total specific to your area with up-to-the minute forecasts, so we know how bad the conditions are at any one time, at any specific place.

Our state-of-the-art equipment features Global Positioning Systems (GPS) that helps us dispatch a driver to your commercial property when you need our service. And you can be sure we’ll clear the way, even in the most challenging situations.

As you know, snow presents its own issues in New Jersey and removing it helps your business stay ahead of others, but also avoids dangers that could be costly.

INJURIES AND CLAIMS

Removing snow also removes the possibilities of slip and falls that can cause injury and claims. An efficient and professional snow removal service will make sure pathways, parking lots and other areas around your business are free of snow and ice, protecting your employees and customers, and giving you piece of mind.

As you probably know, shoveling heavy, wet snow is not a fun way to spend your day. It takes you away from other important and/or fun things that you’d rather be doing. Shoveling snow is also extraneous work, so you run the risk of straining body parts, pulling a muscle or give you headaches. And chances are, you won’t get all the snow out.

UNFORSEEN ACCIDENTS

Not only is the snow an issue, but also what’s beneath it.

Several inches of the white staff will cover everything, including hydrants, pipes and other dangers that could cause accidents. As a professional snow removal service, we understand those problems and try to mitigate them, reducing the risk of accidents for you.

REFREEZING

Just as worrisome as the snow is the ice that forms when it begins to melt during the day and refreezes again as temperatures descend later. Those icy conditions can be even more treacherous, turning driveways, roadways and parking lots into slick and dangerous traps.

MOBILITY PROBLEMS

In recent years, many unscrupulous people have taken advantage of the American Disabilities Act (ADA) by suing unsuspecting businesses for the most minor issues preventing free mobility for people with special needs.

Don’t let this happen to you.

Having a professional remove snow from your business not only keeps you safe from frivolous lawsuits, but also helps those who require a wheelchair, cane or with mobility issues. They will thank you and you’ll be regarded as a conscientious community member.

LOSS OF BUSINESS

What’s the point of having a business and great products if you’re customers can’t reach your doors?

Removing snow from your property ensures that it is accessible to clients looking to purchase what you offer. Unplowed parking lots may keep customers away. The accumulation of snow also can cause vehicles to get stuck, slide and hit other cars or struck something hidden underneath the snow. None of those scenarios are good for your pocket.

A PROPER IRRIGATION SYSTEM FOR YOU

Of course, snow removal is only one of the services we offer. For several decades, we have also been helping property owners present their best and “greenest” face forward by designing, modernizing and repairing irrigation systems that keep lawns looking their best.

Right now there might not be much “green” under all that snow, but you still need to take care of your landscape. As temperatures fluctuate, the wetness from the melting snow makes the turf vulnerable. And just because there’s a cover of snow on top of your grass, you should avoid excessive foot traffic over it as this weakens grass and impacts their recovery in spring. Foot traffic can also damage sprinklers and other parts of the irrigation system.

If you don’t have such a system, we can customize one that meets your needs, saves you time and money by ensuring your green areas receive the proper amount of water, without wasting the precious liquid.

Our specialists will work with you side-by-side whether you need a completely new sprinkler system, need to update the one you have to make it more efficient or conduct regular maintenance and repairs. From design to installation, the irrigation system for your property is meant to ensure your lawn looks its best all year round, without making a hole in your pocket and with minimal effort on your part.

A proper irrigation system takes into consideration your budget, type of grass and soil, and property size and features. The result is a system that ensures the health and longevity of your lawn and landscape, conserving water and saving you money.

As the famous groundhog predicted in Pennsylvania, winter weather will be with us for several more weeks, but it’s never too early to begin planning for when spring rolls around. Making sure you have an irrigation system that responds to your needs or that works at its best and properly will make it easier for your lawn to recover as soon as the temperature starts warming up again, which we all hope will be sooner than later.
