The last thing your employees and customers want to do is struggle to find parking and then have to trek through snow just to get to your front door.

5. Hire St Louis snow removal to protect yourself from physical strain
As we mentioned in this snow removal blog, shoveling snow is an incredibly strenuous activity. It’s also not a physical activity that most of us do very often, so our bodies are ill-prepared for it. While it’s tempting to just grab a shovel and some salt to tackle the snow yourself, it’s actually a pretty dangerous activity. Cardiologist Barry Franklin performed a study to see just how taxing shoveling snow can be for the heart.
“His team found that when healthy young men shovelled snow, their heart rate and blood pressure increased more than when they exercised on a treadmill. 'Combine this with cold air, which causes arteries to constrict and decrease blood supply, you have a perfect storm for a heart attack,' he says.” (Source)
