WAUKESHA — The snow drought might finally be over for some area plow businesses. The coming snow has companies excited to get out and start to make up for the missing revenue.
“It’s been tough,” said Morgan Saccomando, owner of All Seasons Facility Maintenance. “We dropped some blades over the New Year, just for some places. Otherwise it’s been since November.”
All Seasons Facility Maintenance plows for businesses, apartments and does sidewalks around Waukesha County. They are already anticipated workers to be out for more than 12 hours.
“I’m telling everybody tomorrow to basically sleep so we have actually prepared today so all of our manpower is ready to rock,” said Saccomando.
Part of that manpower comes from some horse power. The snowrator is like a lawnmower on steroids.
“They will fly through a sidewalk in about half the time of a laborer with a snowblower,” said Saccomando.
The owner said they are also anticipating needing a higher grade of salt. Some of their trucks have this brownish beet juice treated salt to deal with the big drop in temperatures.
“When you got those icy glazes and you can’t get it with the regular salt, this will cut through,” said Saccomando.
But despite the challenge ahead, Saccomando and her crew could not be happier to see the flakes fly.
“They are jonesing, they are ready to go. They are so excited,” said Saccomando.
