Snow Removal Frequently Asked Questions
What areas do you offer snow service?
We have commercial and residential routes all over the St. Cloud Metro Area. However some routes fill early and may already be full. So contact us to see if spots are available.
What is the minimum snowfall amount before you provide residential service?
Our minimum snowfall amount is 1″ for residential snow blowing. Any time it snows 1″ or more during one snowfall we will automatically provide service. We go by the offical snow totals reported at noaa.gov. Any snow event under 1 inch is the homeowner’s responsibility. Homeowners are responsible for removing ice from driveways, NOT Ehlinger Lawn Service, Inc.
Do you have a seasonal snowfall limit?
How close do you clean to my garage door?
Our driveway service includes all areas our tractor can access: Within 12 inches of the driveway edges and vehicles, and within 30 inches of garage doors, any remaining snow is not our responsibility.
What is the term of your contract?
The contract is effective from November 1 – April 30, including holidays.
Will my driveway be cleared before 7 AM?
We start snow removal within an hour from the snow event ending. We guarantee service to be completed within:
- 9 hours following a snow event of 6 inches or less
- 12 hours following a snow event of more than 6 inches
- 24 hours on holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Easter)
