Another Utah winter is upon us and while we do have “the greatest snow on Earth” we don’t always have the greatest time shoveling it out of our driveways. Sometimes it seems easier to ignore. That is, until we are in a rush to get somewhere and the snow stops us from getting to the end of the driveway. Aside from getting a covered driveway, there isn’t really a way to avoid this chore. However, there are some things that can be done to make the task easier.

It may seem easier said and done, but keeping your driveway clear is one of the best ways to make the task of clearing your driveway easier. When your driveway is clear of snow and ice, it is more difficult for new snow to stick to the ground. This can drastically cut down on your shoveling time, making it a task of minutes rather than hours. Another advantage to keeping your driveway clear is being able to spread salt and/or sand which will further prevent snow from sticking. Snow blowers and plows are just a couple other ways to cut down on your shovel time, though they are much more expensive than an old fashioned shovel.

Of course, life doesn’t always afford us the time that we need to keep up with Utah’s grueling snow schedule. For this reason, there are many companies that offer winter property maintenance services like snow removal. These companies can work with you to create a schedule that ensures you have a clear and safe driveway throughout the winter.

Keeping your driveway clear of snow can be a great help in keeping your garage safe as well. Preventing snow and moisture from building up in your garage can cut down on slipping hazards. It can also go a long way in protecting things that might be stored in your garage. Your garage doors can also be greatly affected by these factors, especially in the cold.
