Winter is not the most popular season in central Indiana. It is often cold and dark and full of unpredictable weather. But Hoosiers are good at looking at the bright side of things. Snow-covered landscapes can be dazzlingly beautiful. Cold weather can lead to cozy evenings with your favorite family or friends. And inclement weather often provides opportunities to help or be helped by neighbors. At Ping’s, we view winter as a time when we can offer services to make the season a good one for our customers. With the required expertise as well as the necessary snow removal and tree service equipment, Ping’s can make your winter better in these four ways.
Snow Removal Service
One frustrating aspect of winter in the Midwest is that travel is more difficult. Snow must be removed from roads in order for vehicles to safely pass. We are fortunate that local governments take care of public roads. Yet there are still neighborhood streets and commercial parking lots that are not the responsibility of public road crews. If you are responsible for making sure that a lot or subdivision is kept clear, Ping’s can help. You tell us the trigger for plowing, and when we receive that amount of snow, we will send out a crew. Day or night, you don’t have to worry. Our snow removal service let you rest assured that snow and ice will be dealt with promptly.
Removing Dead or Dangerous Trees
Winter weather brings with it conditions that can quickly take down a dead, dying, or otherwise weakened tree. Strong winds, ice accumulation, or even heavy snowfall can put stress on trees. Those that are vulnerable may lose large limbs or even topple completely. At this point, you may experience more damage than just tree loss. If a branch falls on a car, house, or commercial building, the results can be devastating. No one wants to deal with the property damage and personal injury that can occur when a tree or branch falls. If you know you have a vulnerable tree, Ping’s can help you avoid disaster by removing it now before nature gets the chance to take it out. We have the tree service equipment required to make an easy fix to a potentially dangerous situation.
Sometimes even with the best of forethought and preparation, winter weather will deliver a punch you weren’t expecting. Even healthy trees can sometimes fall victim to gusty winds and weighty precipitation. When this happens to you, Ping’s will help you make the best of it. Our emergency tree service is available 24/7 to provide quick clean-up help. We are ready to send our crews out anytime you need us, and we will see that the mess is taken care of safely and efficiently.
Getting Ready for Spring
One final way that Ping’s can help make your winter a little brighter is by helping you get ready for spring. It doesn’t take long for most of us to tire of the dreariness of winter. We start to dream of spring long before it arrives. Ping’s can help you put your dreams into action. Winter is a good time to trim up trees, getting them ready to grow as soon as the weather turns warmer. We can also help you devise a plan for lawn care or landscaping during the warmer seasons. After all, it won’t be long until you’ll be mowing your grass instead of scooping snow!
So sit back, enjoy the best of winter, and let Ping’s make the colder months more bearable. Right now, we are offering a 15% discount on qualifying services performed before February 28th, 2018. Call us today (317-298-8482) and let us know how we can help!
Every year we know it’s coming. Yet the first cold blast of winter is still a shock. Did we really think that the beautiful days of autumn would not succumb to the icy days of winter? We can’t expect that in central Indiana! As we enter the cold and snowy season, we are also entering a season that brings with it some increased risks. It is important to be aware of the potential danger that accompanies winter weather so that you can take steps to minimize your risk.
Risks to Your Health
The cold weather that inevitably arrives this time of year does more than just make us uncomfortable. It actually takes a toll on our bodies. When it is cold, it requires more energy just to maintain normal bodily functions. This is a stress on the body, though in healthy individuals it is a minimal one. Health is additionally strained by the assault on the immune system caused by increased infectious diseases. For these reasons, winter sees a spike in illnesses as well as heart attacks. To stay well during the winter months, get plenty of rest, stay away from sick individuals, and don’t exert yourself beyond your limits.
Risks at Home
Winter weather can be hazardous to your house as well as your body. One of the most damaging elements of winter can be the freezing temperatures. Severe cold can freeze water in your pipes or water that is blocked in your gutters or on your roof. The expansion that occurs in the freezing process can cause pipes to burst or ice dams to form, resulting in household floods. To avoid these damaging events, ensure pipes (especially those on an outside wall) stay adequately warm and remove any obstructions to water flow patterns on your exterior.
Another common danger during severe winter weather is fallen or uprooted trees. Brisk winds can easily bring down branches or even trees. Just a little bit of heavy ice or snow can also do a lot of damage and do it quickly. Since weak or dead trees or branches are more susceptible to wind, snow, and ice, they should be taken care of before they fall on your valuable property, such as home or car. Ping’s can trim these dangerous branches for you or take down dead trees. They are also ready to clean up any tree emergencies that you experience.
Risks on the Road
Accumulating snow and icy temperatures affect more than just your home. They also have a significant effect on the roads. When winter storms blow in quickly, they can cause the roads to become very dangerous in a short span of time. The best defense against these risks is to stay off the roads when possible. But that is not always feasible. When you have to travel in inclement weather, you should be sure to give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination. It is also important to have an emergency kit in your car. The kit should include your phone and a charger, a blanket, hat and gloves, a flashlight, flares, a first-aid kit, and snacks. While you might not always be able to predict when severe weather will hit, you can be prepared when it does.
Risks to Your Business
Finally, if you are a business owner, you have not only yourself, your family, and your home to protect, but also your business. You must consider your employees and your commercial property. Some of the same risks for homes also exist for commercial property. Be on the look-out for vulnerable trees and branches as well as potential flooding disasters. It is also important to avoid the potential liability of slick parking lots and sidewalks. Failing to deal with snow and ice can result in serious accidents and injuries to customers or employees. Ping’s is now offering reliable snow removal services. When the snow falls, Ping’s will take care of it for you so you don’t have to worry.
