To a business owner, keeping the entrance and sidewalk to his or her business clear is necessary and is often included in snow removal contracts. Snow removal contractors need quality equipment in order to fulfill the contract requirements and reduce slip and fall injuries in the winter. Spreading de-icing material is like applying the finishing touch to taking care of snow and ice removal buildup. wbs.png
