Ice and Safety

Ice and Safety
When it comes to the winter, it can be difficult to find enough hours in the day to do everything that needs to be done. While we all know that there are always 24 hours in a day, it can seem like a lot less with how little daylight there actually is. If you work a standard eight hour day, you barely get to see any sun around this time of year. Pair that with cold temperatures and you get a recipe for disaster. This is most often brought on by one big issue: winter weather.

Trying to do anything while there is snow and ice outside is annoying at best and downright dangerous at worst. Even just walking to get your mail can result in a fall if there is ice. That's why it is important if you are in charge of an apartment building or complex to make sure that the snow and ice gets cleared for your residents before one of them gets hurt on your property. The last thing you want is for someone to fall and get injured due to something as simple as ice that can be corrected before the ice even forms.

If you have a large complex or building, you should always try to invest in some salt for the parking lot and any roads and sidewalks that you may have. If nothing else, the salt will help to melt the ice and keep things from getting too dangerous. The larger your property, the more you will want to keep on hand. This may require a team of people to shovel or even a snowblower or plow to help get the roads and lots cleared. Any walkways should be cared for as well, especially if there are stairs. While it is important for residents to be careful and monitor their own properties, it's always a good idea to try to help them out.

Making sure that snow and ice gets cleared away in a timely fashion is important for a rental property owner. If you only have a few smaller units, however, you may decide to leave it up to your tenant. Even if you have large properties, you may leave patios and doorsteps up to the residents. Regardless of who is in charge, remember that winter weather can be dangerous. Make sure to keep your property safe with Talley's help every storm!
