Dedicated to meeting the unique needs of Calgary’s entrepreneurial clientele, we at Mirage provide high-quality and reliable snow removal for businesses. From strip malls and condo complexes to shopping malls, office buildings, and industrial areas, we cater to a diverse range of business environments and properties. Our 24/7 service commitment aims to eliminate any disruptions to your operations and prioritizes the safety of your customers, staff, and pedestrians navigating through the challenges of Calgary’s harsh winters.
With three generations of experience in snow removal in this city, we could potentially run the risk of always doing it the “old way” and failing to evolve with the times. But we genuinely enjoy when new (and good) advancements in snow removal come along that can help us improve our service to our clients. In recent years, snow removal for businesses has been experiencing a significant evolution, marked by advancements in technology, a growing emphasis on efficiency and sustainability, and an increased focus on customer satisfaction.
Technology is doing a great deal to help us streamline our operations. We’re enjoying the results of slowly implementing GPS tracking systems and fleet-management tools so that we can monitor the location and progress of our snow-removal vehicles in real time. This allows us to help ensure the safety of our employees and keep our arrival time to your business as efficient as possible. We can also make sure our drivers are operating their vehicles in the safest manner possible.
Weather prediction technology has played a crucial role in enhancing the preparedness of snow removal for businesses. The use of technologies such as Doppler radar, weather stations, weather balloons, and satellites have improved the accuracy of weather predictions about five times since 40 years ago. Accurate and timely weather forecasts help snow removal companies such as ours to plan and allocate our resources more effectively and ensure we have crews ready to respond promptly when snow is on its way. Weather technology is also allowing us to get a long-term look at predictions so that we can better design our residential and commercial landscapes for resilience and longevity.
In addition to technology-driven improvements, the snow removal for businesses is increasingly adopting more environmentally friendly practices. The use of eco-friendly de-icing agents, such as calcium magnesium acetate, has become more widespread. Calcium magnesium acetate is less harmful to the environment and surfaces than traditional rock salt, reducing the ecological impact on nearby vegetation, soil, and water sources.
The future of snow removal
We are really interested in the concept of smart snow removal, which uses the implementation of sensor technologies. The sensors can be embedded in pavement or other surfaces to detect temperature changes and the presence of snow or ice. As we all know in Calgary, ice can easily hide underneath a layer of snow, or be camouflaged as black ice, so this kind of technology can go a long way towards minimizing slip-and-fall injuries. Smart snow removal also minimizes the use of de-icing agents, which is a bonus for the environment.
Snow-removal equipment is being better designed for precision and efficiency, as well. High-tech snowplows equipped with adjustable blades and GPS-guided systems are allowing for more accurate and effective snow removal, reducing the risk of property damage and enhancing overall service quality. Also, we are seeing the development of smaller, more agile equipment options for tight spaces, ensuring that no area is skipped or overlooked during the removal process.
Finally, the creation of apps that can allow clients to better communicate with snow removal companies have the opportunity to be extremely helpful. Commercial clients may be able to pinpoint exact trouble spots on their properties, which are often difficult to point out by photos and descriptions alone. You could let us know if you need an emergency visit (maybe some kids played in your snow pile), and we can tell you our exact time of arrival, which can be helpful if employees still have their vehicles in your lot and should have them moved.
