Each state has its own laws and regulations when it comes to commercial snow removal. In New Jersey, as one of the states continually hit by heavy snow storms, it is no different. If you are a business owner in New Jersey, it’s time to get to know these regulations before you are fined for something you weren’t even aware of.

According to the latest regulations for commercial snow removal in New Jersey, snow must be removed properly and in a timely fashion from your property during a snow fall. All accessible parking lot spaces, ramps, sidewalks and other essential areas for persons with disabilities to access the building must be clear within 48 hours of the end of a storm. If businesses do not comply with these rules, fines starting at $200 can be imposed on the business owner.

Many business owners take on snow removal themselves, and refuse to hire a commercial snow removal company. When it comes to state law and regulation, this could leave you in some trouble if compliance isn’t met in the timely fashion that is required by law. As a business owner, this means you need to put snow removal first, especially during a storm in order to avoid any problems.

The best solution to keeping you within the law and to avoid fines is to hire a professional commercial snow removal company.
