Winter can be a magical time of year, especially when the first snowflakes of the season begin to fall. But the magic disappears all too soon when you come to the realization that all the white stuff on your sidewalk and driveway needs to be removed. And let’s face it, shoveling snow is labor intensive and takes up a whole lot of your time, time that could be better spent sipping hot chocolate and binge-watching your favorite shows on Netflix. Not only that, it’s very cold outside and even if you don’t catch a cold while shoveling, your hands and feet are freezing and your nose is running uncontrollably.

In fact, snow removal is on the top of the list of chores homeowners hate to do, right under cleaning the gutters. Despite this, many homeowners choose to grab a shovel and take on this task all on their own. They would rather suffer this task themselves than spend the money hiring a residential snow removal service in New Jersey. Which is really sad because the service isn’t as costly as they might think. In fact, you might actually save money by hiring a snow removal service. We’re not kidding. There are also other reasons you really need to seriously consider hanging up the snow shovel and giving us a call.

Your Health

removal-side-page-content-image-12-29-16We are all aware that shoveling snow is backbreaking work, even if you spend a lot of money on a snowblower and other equipment designed to make the job easier. We have news for you; it is still backbreaking work, even when removing snow with your $1,500 SnowBlaster F-350*.

The strain on your body is bad enough after one snowstorm, but you will suffer even more as the season progresses. Experts warn that the intense cardio workout you get shoveling snow puts your health at risk. That is, you can suffer a heart attack while shoveling snow. In fact, you could die. Studies show that more heart attacks occur in December and January than any other time of the year.

Your Safety

There are other dangers you face when tackling the task of shoveling your sidewalk and driveway. It is likely that ice patches are under that two feet of snow and could cause you to fall, leading to injury. Emergency rooms are filled with people who suffered an unfortunate accident while shoveling snow. It just isn’t worth the risk.

Save Money

You spend your hard-earned money on snow shovels, snowblowers, fuel, salt and other supplies to aid in snow removal. These are all supplies that you don’t need to buy if you invest in a snow removal service. In addition, spending money on a professional snow removal service is a whole lot cheaper than a trip to the emergency room.

Curb Appeal

Clearing away snow from your sidewalk and driveway helps you maintain an attractive and welcoming environment. It just doesn’t make sense to spend a lot of money keeping your home’s exterior in good condition only to have it obscured by snow for a good portion of the year.
