Regular snow removal is a must. After all, it facilitates mobility and makes sure our driveways, walkways, and roads are safe to walk on. If you’ve lived in Alberta for long, snow removal and its struggles have been an ever-present part of your life.
Snow removal has gradually improved with the availability of professional snow shoveling services and technological innovations. These innovations have made our struggles easier to manage. Here are a few popular trends in snow removal, this winter, treat yourself the luxury of convenience.
1) Melting the Ice
Ice melting has been particularly successful in containing the extents of our problems. Due to lack of better options in the past, ice melting products that have dangerous toxic chemicals that affect our environment have been used. Technological progress has made sure environmentally friendly products are available. These greener alternatives are safer.
2) Specially Designed Lightweight Shovels
Make no mistake, manually shoveling is physically tiring work, and we only recommend shoveling for smaller patches of shallow deposits of snow. The problem with shoveling is that it leads to several back injuries and spasms. The new-age lightweight shovels are easy on your back and hardly affect performance.

The accumulation of a deep layer of snow needs a more effective method of snow removal; this is something that brushes wouldn’t be effective at. Adjustable snow blowers, on the other hand, come with the added advantage of being equipped with adjustable nozzles and directional chutes. This gives you the luxury of picking up snow in sizeable chunks and throwing it elsewhere. The directional element of these blowers let you have greater control while depositing snow. This would prevent quarrels with your neighbor as you wouldn’t dump snow onto their driveway.

Installing in-ground heating systems need the professional services of a radiant heat expert and perhaps a licensed electrician. These cables are effective because they manage to melt away the snow regardless of the shape of the area where it is installed. These cables virtually eliminate the need of shoveling altogether; the only downside to this would be how expensive these systems are.
