Winter Risk Management

We are on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week 365 days a year. Our team is always monitoring the weather so you don’t have to. We take the worry out of the winter. With three private weather services, we have access to multiple meteorologists any time day or night.

Our Range of Services

Snow Clearing Services

With a fleet of more than 100 high capacity snow pushers ranging from 8’-20’ and more than 100 snow plow trucks, we have the equipment to handle any size site small or large. Snow clearing usually begins when snow accumulates more than 1” and is continuous until the storm is over and all the sites have been cleared.

Anti-icing Services

Pre-treatment with de-icing chemicals is the first step to successful snow and ice management. Prior to a storm’s arrival, we apply granule and liquid chemicals to prevent the actual adhesive bond that forms without this intervention. The application process is an integral safety measure to ensure easier clearing and plowing.

De-icing Services

Designed to melt the final layer left behind by traditional snow clearing, this technique involves the application of chemicals during or after a storm. De-icing is also used to battle freezing rain and sleet storms common to the St. Louis area. BSR Services always procures enough chemicals for more than one season.

Snow Hauling Services

When the big storm hits or we experience consecutive storms, snow hauling may be needed to remove large snow piles from sites. Our expansive fleet of high capacity dump trucks and loaders efficiently move snow off site to designated locations.

Sidewalk Clearing Services

No matter how large or small, we have the manpower and equipment to safely service all types of sidewalks. We use a variety of specialized sidewalk broom machines and hand crews that easily clear your buildings’ paths thanks to our pre-treatment process.

Liquids

We at BSR Services are always looking for the best snow and ice removal methods to better serve you. A few years ago we invested in new equipment – including state-of-the-art liquid salt application machinery, two tanker trucks, and the addition of liquid systems to our remaining 40 trucks – in order to offer faster and more environmentally-friendly winter treatment methods. Now we’re expanding this type of treatment to encompass even more of our winter service programs.

Environmentally Friendly Liquid Salt Brine

We at BSR Services are always looking for the best snow and ice removal methods to better serve you. A few years ago we invested in new equipment – including state-of-the-art liquid salt application machinery, two tanker trucks, and the addition of liquid systems to our remaining 40 trucks – in order to offer faster and more environmentally-friendly winter treatment methods. Now we’re expanding this type of treatment to encompass even more of our winter service programs.

When weather permits (BSR cannot use this product if it rains before it snows), we will be utilizing liquids for all pre-salt applications. Our industry is embracing this technique, and we want to be a part of this all-encompassing and progressive treatment method.

Rock Salt doesn’t actually melt anything, it has to turn to Brine. Temperature and moisture turns rock salt to Brine. Brine is instantaneous and can be put down days and weeks in advance, goes down into the surface and waits for the moisture to hit.

A Little More Costly To Us… But Well Worth It For You

While liquid involves a more costly application process (we are committed to hiring additional labor and purchasing specialized equipment), the benefits to our customers are far reaching:

  • This product has no bounce, meaning there is less vegetation stress so it is an extremely eco-friendly method.
  • Since it is a liquid and immediately adheres and dries on contact, there is no messy shoe tracks into buildings.
  • Less cleaning equals longer interior flooring life.

Liquid Salt Brine Vs. Salt Application

Here’s the breakdown of liquid vs. salt crystals:

  • Regular salt breaks down with tire traffic, gets carried away in tires, and is easily blown away to the curb. This could mean reapplying another salt application to achieve the same results as liquid.
  • Liquid salt brine stays in place where it is needed so our clients will enjoy the application’s full effects for a much longer time.

The Benefits of Liquid Salt

BSR Services is very familiar with this process, which provides many advantages:

  • Liquid salt pre-treatment is beneficial during extremely cold conditions. Since salt reacts slowly when temperatures are below 10 degrees, spraying liquid salt jump starts the melting process and causes the salt to react more quickly.
  • Applying liquid salt brine to the pavement before snow or ice has bonded can be 10 times more effective than placing salt crystals on top of snow and ice after it has bonded to the pavement.
